Alien invasion are always cool in entertainment world, Independence Day, Men in Black, Halo, Transformers and the list just go on... This year, is Skyline who comes in and fill the void, and are really disappointing.
Let's just start with the basics, plot. This movie lack even the most simplest form of alien invasion storyline, that is the purpose of the alien. In Men in Black and Transformers, aliens (or robots you say in Transformers) comes to the Earth to find something that is lost to the galaxy and discovered on Earth. In Skyline, there's nothing explaining why there are lights up in the air sucking people up. NOTHING!!! The story feel completely disjointed and all over the place...
The cast are not good as well... In the prologue already you know that this movie's dialogue and acting are weird and in complete mess.
For a budget around $20-30 million, it has a very good visual and sound effects, for a sci-fi movie... But for everything else, go watch another low budget sci-fi movie, District 9...
Pros: Brilliant visual effects, sound effects and action sequences
Cons: Everything else
Verdict: 2/5 (Skip)
