It was a fun watch and the ending was one hell of a twist. The acting could have been WAY better for the situation but still a fun concept.

I don't know why people hated this movie so much, but it wasn't that bad. Sure, it wasn't the greatest, but it had some wicked SFX including the aliens, the ships and the air battles, including the near awesome nuke scene. Nice twist of an ending. Sure, crappy acting, but the rest was just fine.

What did I expect from the directors of AVP2? I dared to hope that it could be better than this mess. It's pretty amazing that for all the special effects, the coolest plot point of this whole dismal movie comes in the end credits. They could have condensed the hour and forty minutes into thirty and then continued on the new path. I'm sure they were opening it up for a sequel, but no one in their right mind would want to see a sequel to something so bad.

Skyline ist ein Science-Fiction Film mit spektakulären Special-Effects von den Strause-Brüdern. Die Brüder waren auch an den Special-Effects von Avatar - Aufbruch nach Pandora beteiligt. Aliens greifen die Erde an (eine sehr beliebte Handlung bei Sci-Fi Filmen)

An alien invasion flick that regurgitates all the tropes the genre has seen before, but with a bright blue tint.

No idea why this movie has such a bad score. It's well acted. It's well directed. The effects are fantastic. Most of all, the storyline is exceptional. This is an entirely new take on the alien invasion genre with an ending you don't see coming. I've seen this movie twice and it was just as good the second time. If you haven't already seen this movie, I HIGHLY recommend you watch it.

The ending could maybe have been engaging if it made sense, but even putting the best possible spin on Skyline, it still repeatedly commits the cardinal sin of the entertainment industry: Being boring.

this movie is pretty bad. but i still enjoy it. guilty pleasure. i loved it when it first came out. the sci-fi aspects are pretty cool, some decent action/excitement/suspense. and some cool ideas. it also had really bad acting, especially by the lead actor and actress, both horrible choices. bad dialogues, characters you don't care about, and lots of dumb stuff. (about 3 viewings)


the ending is the best part, and what made me really love it when i first saw it. harvesting human brains is awesome, and then the dude becoming one of them. could be seen as dumb, i think it's pretty cool

Bad and slow start. Cheap. Couldn't help laughing when an alien survived a nuke blast but killed by a brick in bare hands. Not too bad CGI and fun to watch the last 30 minutes. Weird ending for a sequel to come.

This movie stinks, if you make it to the end...oh my God!

For those that did you know what I am talking about!

For me, this movie was a bit of a slow burn. The first half was a bit boring, but it built up nicely; to an ending that had me wanting more. I think the pacing issues could have been solved if the cutting of the movie was more harsh in the 1st half.

Awful script, story, acting. Awful movie.

Suffering from a bad script, so-so acting, and a story that's just decent, Skyline is a mostly bad movie. That being said, the special effects still hold up today, and the Drones vs Aliens dogfight scene is spectacular.

fun but dumb popcorn flick!

I think this movie was absolutely captivating, and epic. Most people don't realize the time and effort these actors and actresses put into making this extraordinary movie. I applaud the actors and actresses for doing the best the can to showcase this movie to the world. I cannot fathom how much criticism people can create based on how they feel things should be, but to those people I want to let them know that things will never go as they plan in life, they have to learn to deal with it. Thank you for this movie, and I hope to see a part 2.

When I picked this up from a DVD rental shop I was unaware of its reputation. The box art looked good, but you should never judge a book by its cover. The film started good, but then a flashback killed it. It cut away from the action to introduce us to a set of B list actors. Prepare to watch 90 minutes of people trying and failing to escape from a hotel. The film tries to reinvent the wheel by letting the aliens win, but this just makes it boring. There is no plot to this film as at no point do you believe that the main character has a chance of saving the world. He should focus his efforts into keeping his girlfriend because he comes across as a massive tool.The CGI is good, but you only see the air battles from a hotel window. I later found out that this film was made for only 10 million. All is not forgiven, however as Hot Fuzz was made for much less than that and that film had a good cast, humour and a plot.

One the most stupid and inconsistent Sci-Fi movies i have ever seen. A pure waste of time watching it.

Total garbage. Even the special effects were lackluster by 2010 standards, which was the only thing that this movie could have possibly had going for it. The acting was bad, the story was bad, the plot was bad, the character development was bad, the foreshadowing was bad, it was bad, bad, bad. Even Plan 9 From Outer Space was better than this.
