Balphy here with another movie review! The movie tonight is Skyline.
The previews for skyline really got me wondering how amazing and exciting the movie was going to be. Im not a big fan of Alien abductions and what not but the way the trailers made it out to be i thought it would be an interesting watch. So I went to see the movie and I must say that I was highly dissappointed. I guess I am just one of those people that bases a movie on its trailer.. gotta stop doing that.
Why dont I like it? Well in my opinion it was nothing but a rather long intro. Now if they come out with a Skyline 2 then I think they did a fair job with the movie, though I wouldnt give it more than a 3/5.
The movie’s story line is very simple actually. It starts with the aliens sending down bright lights down to earth to various locations to abduct humans. It shows how one of the characters gets sucked in and then it takes us back about 15 hours ago. It then shows the movie about events leading up to the alien invasion or so I thought. Instead those events are in no way related to anything with the aliens and as to why they are invading. The aliens ome. They start abducting people by the hordes. The army sends their best at them. It is no good. They beat everyone. They get nuked. They survive it and basically render the army useless. I wont give away the ending because something cool does happen. But all in all it was the stupidest movie of the year. The movie had no heads or tail. The story was boring and didnt even try to gain my attention for long because there was way too much drama involved. Rather than focus on the main movie which I’m guessing are the aliens invading earth, they focus on the relationship problems the main characters are going through.
I give Skyline a 1/5 just because it had cool effects.
