Angry Movie Lurker Review 15: SKYLINE.(3 STARS)


I saw this recently even with the majority of people not liking it according to other blogs and websites but I am a sucker for an alien invasion movie.The actors in the movie were not really known to me other than knowing them from the TV, Donald Faison (Turk from Scrubs), David Zayas (Angel Batista from Dexter), Scottie Thompson( Tonys girlfriend in NCIS for 16 episodes) but the actors in general are OK but the star are the aliens and the CGI, the aliens are a cross between the matrix sentinels and George Lucas beasts in varying sizes, there are motherships and there are more brains on view here than a good zombie movie.The attack on the mothership by predators and stealth bombers is a highlight,there are F-22 raptors,some ground troops and helicopters as the military fights back but the aliens have a trick up their sleeve and as I said human brains play a lot in this movie.The ending leaves itself open for a sequel but also is the weakest point but only because it irritated me as I felt it was silly.This movie is worth a watch and I would watch it again on DVD but with some fast forwarding but it is a CGI movie and quite good at it.

  1. I saw this recently & really quite enjoyed it. The anti Skyline scribes are actually off the mark. It works very well for what it is & the criticism about the movie centering around a handful of people in an apartment block misses the point that this is their story & vantage point about the alien invasion. With a second movie likely no doubt the story will open up, but all things considered the people involved with this diod a very good job, so count me in the Skyline friends of corner. I enjoyed it.
