A fleet of alien spaceships appears in the skies above L.A. and begin harvesting its inhabitants. Skyline is a bit like watching the events of Independence Day unfold, except instead of in the thick of the action bathed in the charm and charisma of everyone's favourite Fresh Prince, you're watching it with a bunch of bickering, obnoxious, self-obsessed F-listers from a window three miles away. It has all the originality and depth of sophistication of ID4 combined with the sharp, witty dialogue and likeable, beautifully performed characters of Cloverfield (and for those of you poor, deluded fools that didn't realise that Cloverfield was a huge, festering pile of Godzilla sized steamer, just TRY and imagine the sarcasm in my voice...) It really is the worst of both worlds, and as for that …

I cannot fathom how I was able to watch this in theaters. Effects alone cannot make a movie successful. The dying of each character, acting and mindless plot was really disappointing. Effects were present, the realism was sub-par. So many dragging parts, if only the cast and script was well thought of. The ending was even coy, it couldn’t save this film. I had high hopes because of the trailer and cutout poster displayed. Excellent marketing for this pointless picture got to applaud them on that.

"Skyline" is a Sci-Fi - Thriller film set in Los Angeles. It centers on couples and friends whose after partying all night, find themselves trapped in a building with extraterrestrial invaders outside.
Let's start with the actors. Their performance weren't bad- that's it. I remember I was really excited watching this movie after seeing the trailer. Round of applause with its visually appealing effects! but no good note with the sound scoring and mixing. The story? Is there a story? Really? The concept was really good. Maybe they just struggle on the execution, like how they will thrill the viewers which in the end,[SPOILER!!!] they decided to do like final destination, one-by-one, characters will be gone. I waited till it ended, I wished it will turn out to be very smart conclusion. …

97% of this movie is pure suck... However, the 3% of good is so good it actually makes this watchable. For starters there is one epic scene which is shown in the trailer of the bodies, hundreds of them floating upwards. Personally I found this scene alone the best cgi I had seen in a long time. I was certainly more moved by that than by anything Avatar did. While I found nothing in this movie scary that scene alone was just unnerving and unsettling. The movie flutters along with characters you couldn't care less about, some rap music situation you don't care about and action that is more or less poor and boring. They made the aliens so rediculos looking that it didn't have the same 'signs' creepy effect and just looked like any random monster done godzille style. The creepyness of …

Yeah this movie has definatley been getting some crap reviews as of late, and truth be told I can pretty much understand why. Basically the story is that a couple is traveling to Los Angeles for their friends birthday and they party to their heart's content. Then early the next morning, blue lights pop out of the sky and are abducting people by the masses and now Jarrod, Elaine, Candice, and Terry are among the few remaining survivors who find out that aliens have come to abduct humanity from its home planet for who knows what reason? There is actually a reason why, but A) I don't feel like spoiling it and B) the reason will probably make people laugh their ends off. Of course by now you might be wondering, "Hm, where did I see this before?" If you're thinking Cloverfield, …
