  Terrible film

The trailer makes it look awesome, and I will admit, the special effects are great most of the time, but all in all it was a huge disappointment. The ending completely killed anything good I had to say about the film.

  Quite original, but the acting was a bit thin.

I did enjoy this film. The plot was a little thin and acting was a bit drab and predictable in places. I think David Zayas (Angel from Dexter) had been on the espresso's from his almost schizophrenic performance. The effects were very good with some great monster designs and shots. just ordered the Blu Ray.

  one of the biggest disappointing movies ive seen

i love my sc fi movies, but this was awful, the characters weren't likeable, i wasnt impressed with the aliens either and the storyline was poor. if your a fan of district 9 or battle los angeles stay away from this one. the aliens were far better in those films

  Excellent low budget sci-fi

I am constantly flabbergasted at how badly this movie went down with the mainstream and friends around me. My friends, who normally have similar tastes in movies to me, find themselves at loggerheads with me over this film.
It has it all, originality, great special effects, surprises and good acting. Fear and suspense are built up throughout the movie. It blows Battle LA out of the water, a movie I found to be bland.
I do hope they make another, this is a wonderful little gem that seems to have passed most people by.

  Not good, but certainly not bad.

Saw it this weekend, tried it anyway after reading all the bad reviews. Was pleasantly surprized after about 40 minutes.
The acting wasnt all that bad, Story was 50s like, but entertaining with a laugh, and the effects were absolutely supurb!!! And the blu-ray picture was super crisp. Enjoyed the pictures or should i say
skyline and certain camera shots. Was planning on selling it again after watching, but hey! now that i,ve seen it , keeping it in my Sci-Fi collection.

  Limp Sci-Fi Thriller.

Skyline (2010) is a sci-fi thriller starring Eric Balfour, Brittany Daniel, Scottie Thompson and Donald Faison.

Sadly this movie fails to deliver on its thrilling concept. The effects are ok but the action is not very exciting. The acting is fair without anyone really standing out.

The Brothers Strause (Aliens vs Predator - Requiem) direct with a technical know how but have no real style or visual flair. There are no real thrills or excitement and even the big effects scenes feel drab and limp.

This was a good idea for a movie but its just not as thrilling as its wants to be. No more then two stars for this one.

look this is not a bad sci fi film..$10 million to make and is better than clover field in my opinon ... I brought this on dvd with a digital copy included (would recomend the blu ray) and can honestly say its not a bad piece of sci-fi.. I dont think it was made to ba an avatar,although i belive the company involved in the CGI were also involved so come on give it a go and wacth it as it is intended ..that being a low budget sci fi.... but if you are looking for a good indi sci fi look at MOON another good low budget,low costing film and hey at least its not transformers!!!
