Great visuals, soundtrack and action, story, acting and script lacking

I don't think Skyline is a bad movie as such. While there were better movies from 2010 such as The King's Speech, The Social Network, The Fighter and Toy Story 3, there are also worse such as Fred:The Movie, The Last Airbender, Vampires Suck and Clash of the Titans.

Skyline is not a good movie, but it isn't in my opinion bad either. If anything, my feelings for Skyline are very mixed. I have seen some comparisons to Battle:Los Angeles, and I do agree this is the better movie, while Skyline did have a lot of problems Battle:Los Angeles was clich├ęd, under-directed and over-edited and other than Aaron Eckhart, a decent idea and one or two decent scenes there was little of redeeming value.

Starting with the good things of Skyline, the visuals look absolutely great. The cinematography and editing are slick, the scenery is striking and the colours and lighting are bold, but the real star is the special effects which are superb. The sound is another plus, very explosive and authentic, and the soundtrack is memorable, not too generic and fits decently with the mood. Also, the action in general is explosive and exciting.

Skyline does also have its flaws though. The characters are not as clich├ęd or indifferent as those of Battle:LA and some of the worst of the year, but to be honest I did find some of the characterisation underdeveloped and irritating. The dialogue is often cheesy and seems to be taking an exercise in high camp, and the climax while quite freaky and atmospheric feels like a different tone to the rest of the movie and this was a tone that jarred a bit. The story in its structure is quite soap-opera-like, and can get predictable and pedestrian, the direction is sometimes good sometimes flat and the acting is also uneven ranging from over-eager to bland.

All in all, Skyline was not a bad movie in my opinion, certainly not as bad as I'd heard, but it is a hardly exceptional movie either. 5/10 Bethany Cox

My Review

Overall it was a decent movie. Personally im just tired of so many alien invasion movies. nothing but fear porn in my mind. what if we do get first contact and we respond just like lower civilized fools. then they decide to wipe us all out. im honestly tired of the same old crap HolyWeird pumps out. No good educational content just brainwashing MK-1 Ultra garbage. sure its 8 years old but still worth the watch regardless of how poisonous to the mind.

Good Movie

This is a good movie.... it is different and does not spell everything out for the movie viewer who is encourages to figure out why the aliens are invading ..... and really it is pretty simple

Yet it seems that many people did not understand the purpose of the invasion and why the film was made the way it was

This movie give me some hope that Hollywood can still produce a good movie rather then the rubbish that they normally churn out

Ignore the reviews and watch the movie
