Just what I expected
I'll tell you why so serious
The film creates a perfect balance between action and depth of basic needs, in the midst of an infertile atmosphere.
It's simply great fun, a winsome film and an occasionally over-the-top luxury fantasy that never flags.
I saw this when it came out, and i was just truly and utterly shocked by how amazingly bad it was. I can hardly remember the details of it after all these years (thank god), but i remember very well what made the movie fail so gloriously- the premise of the story (only revealed at the ending) is just remarkably idiotic, the movie is very drawn out and repetitive, all taking place in or on that stupid apartment building, the CGI is.... "eh", the design of the alien crafts is completely generic and without imagination, and their whole alien apocalypse thing just feels very labored, drawn out, uninspired and dumb.. really felt like an amateur movie, me and my friends were just amazed by how bad it was and while we were leaving the cinema we just had to tell any stranger coming in and passing by us to NOT GO SEE SKYLINE, just for the chance of saving another soul from wasting money and suffering through this awful crappy movie...
I'm sorry for the producers but i really REALLY hated this film..
Been a fan of scifi for 40 years, watched this with zero expectations. Admittedly i almost stopped watching it around 15 minutes in, but something made me persist and it certainly grew on me.
This is not your typical alien invasion movie, it has a very strange ending, but that does not detract from it being a quality scifi story.
The concept was interresting.
The execution was less than acceptable.
This movie do not use its character at it fullest. The spacing is a major problem with Skyline.MINOR SPOILER AHEAD, but I'll limit myself to vague mention.The characters litterally wait at one place and do nothing.
It is breaking a spacing that was establish as fast. Then, you got something slow.
They focus on one group with minor chemestry.Cloverfield line did this better with their establishing of a slow spacing to acclimate your brain better. (see what I did there)... brain...Never mind...Though, the effect and concepts explored are actually fascinating, like the biosuits of the aliens and the things they do to humans.I recommend you instead to watch BEYOND SKYLINE. This movie is better in its execution and you can feel it by the spacing.
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 simpleYet it seems that many people did not understand the purpose of the invasion and why the film was made the way it wasThis movie give me some hope that Hollywood can still produce a good movie rather then the rubbish that they normally churn outIgnore the reviews and watch the movie
