When strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, people are drawn outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth. Now the band of survivors must fight for their lives as the world unravels around them.
I went to see this movie last weekend and there were about 5 people in the whole theater. The plot was so pointless I dont even remember what is was about...DO NOT see this movie. Crappy actors, dumb dialoge, and a waste of time and money. First movie ever I fell asleep in...twice!
Ive seen better acting at my child's elementary school play! Mix bad acting + bad script = Skyline. Easily, one of the worst movies ever made, dont waste your time or hard earned money. Whoever produced this farse and then charged that amount of money to see it should be publicly flogged.
I came home after seeing this with my son and told my wife everything that you just read below. My in-laws love 'artsy academy award' movies and I love a good sci-fi. So I am no movie snob, but , This movie reeked bad! The last hour I was rooting for the aliens to eat the bad actors. I even stayed to the end to see who directed this directionless crap. The brothers Strause. Shame on you. Stick to effects and let someone else direct.
Generally I give the review to people I talk to saying "Don't miss seeing this in the theatre" OR "Wait for the DVD." For the first time, and I hope the only time, in my life I told those same people "Don't even wait for the DVD, it was that pointless." The movie had a good idea, but I think they lost the script or something because there was no point to the entire movie.
There was no plot! I'm not saying it was a poor plot, I'm saying it was nonexistent!! The aliens looked pretty cool, but that's all it had going for it.
We paid Â£18 to see this piece of shit. that i knew it was going to be a lame film was confirmed when i realised that the cast were a bunch of unknowns with the exception of the black guy from scrubs and the latino guy who was the guest star on Burn Notice. No plot, no dialogue, no direction, just the worst film that I have ever seen that was only redeemed (if at all) by the special effects. Special effects do not a film make! This was a total waste of time. It could have had something and just when it looks like it got interesting, it finished! don't borrow. don't pay for it, don't even download. you'll just be annoyed you watched this film.
All started with the black dude living in a upscale penthouse which actually does not belong to him! He is the driver of the family who own the place and went on a 20 day cruise vacation. So, he invited the other dude with a horrible mustache and his partner to LA, just hang out because we have no idea what they went to LA for! A job interview? a pregnancy test? graffiti expo? NOBODY KNOWS!
"Yeah, let's go to the pool and then later, let's ride my 60ft Sunseeker boat"...did you see the boat?
What about that scene where the mustache dude beats the "Japanese Spectraman Movie" monster with a brick and then punches so hard that we can even see the styrofoam with pesto basil flying everywhere...outch!
I can't wait to see "Skyline Two, the nightmare goes on"
