great movie, deserves a sequel.
I wasn't expecting much but it's actually pretty good. It's a better movie (and more believable) than Independence Day or the recent War of the Worlds.
Sometimes you have the opportunity to see excellent comedies that weren't supposed to be.
terrible sci-fi movie
I really like this movie. Another person rated it on here and said if you liked War of the Worlds, and I did, you'd like this. Everyone wants something totally original. The effects and movie were action packed. Enjoy!
Garbage! dont waste your time watching it!
Second to: Worst piece of s..t
worst piece of garbage ever!
I just rented this movie, and it was like a bad made for tv movie.
War of the worlds much?
This movie I thought was a cheesy knockoff of district 9 and independence day. Horrible acting and dullness made this movie a snore fest not to mention the horrible ending. How predictable.
not so good
i was entertaind and the idea was cool id tell friends to watch it
This was the latest alien movie that had some cool aliens with a decent storyline. While a bit cheesy in parts, the graphics and cinematography for this made for an interesting ending that leaves it open to the a potential second film but more likely to leave us wondering what happens next. A well done film in my opinion, best watched on the big screen.
The special effects in the film were amazing but the plot lacked depth. It would have been much more interesting if the group had escaped the hotel. Their attempt at escaping was probably the most exciting part of the movie and if they had extended that portion of the movie to an actual escape and pursuit by the aliens before the final capture, it would have improved the movie overall.
The producers of this movie must've spent the entirety of the budget on special effects because it is the only aspect of this film which is not lacking. The talent blows, the story and dialogue is fairly weak and like a lot of contemporary Hollywood films, the ending is merely a precursor to an upcoming sequel. It's a shame that the $10 million spent to make this film wasn't used for a better purpose, like buying toilet paper for countries that are without it.
This movie not very good but the only reason i didnt give it a 1 star is because i heard that the creators had a very low budget and did what they could with it
Not very good.
This movie had great potential. I am not one to go off the opinions of others, especially for films as I like to jusdge for myself, but this movie should have started at the end. I'm sure part 2 and so on will be worth the watch.
Good story line and awesome graphics
Extremely disappointiing. The most ridiculous ending ever.
it was slow and it was a rip off of another movie which i did not like as well.
Very visual and action packed but stitching left a lot to be desired. We are left with a lot of unanswered questions as to what the aliens were and why they were there. Just a lot of destruction and killing.
not worth the money.
After reading all these negative comments, I was reluctant to see the movie. But now I dont understand what movie these people watched.Defenetly not Skyline, as it doesnt deserve poor ratings. Very entertaining and enjoyable.Those who liked War of the Worlds, will love it too.
OMG!! what a waste of money!
i still can't wait to see this one...
I anticipated so mush but was disappointed
Sucked in by a couple of money shots...pretty bad movie with a bizarre and horrible ending...rent it when its on the free rack.
If the idea of aliens intrigues you then you will be able to sit down and enjoy this movie, its isnt great but not bad either.
shockingly bad movie, in pure suspense about how bad things could get
The movie in a whole: In the sci-fi thriller "Skyline," strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the earth. I thought it was a 2012 scare. I did not enjoy the movie past the first 3/4 hour. It became too unrealistic keeping me wondering where all the people are and let's see some aliens already! scale from 0-10, I give it a 5
This movie is one you do not want to pay to see. The best part is when the aliens have invaded and the guy goes out with a gun. And they say "Your going out there with a gun!?" Funniest part of the movie. But it ends there...
I went to see this movie with a good friend of mine whom I sometimes bug for illegally downloading movies. In the middle of this dreck he turns to me and says: "See... do you understand now? We don't download to save money, we download to save lives.... "
GOOD MOVIE. THE ESPECIAL EFECT WAS GOOD
A typical "who's going to die and who's going to live" movie. It follows five people and their quest to stay alive while aliens and taking people. Too many elements of this movie seem to be taken from other movies; the drones look like their from the Matrix and the ships look like their from District 9. Just avoid this.
Horrible story line. Slow to start as they try to develop the characters. Then, when you hope the movie is about to end, silly plot twists are thrown at you.
It's an amazingly terrible movie. If you must see it, wait for it to come out on DVD, your wallet will thank you for it.
The dialog was so laughable it became entertaining just watching the reactions of the people in the theatre. As long as the cost of adding special FX to movies keeps getting cheaper, we can probably look forward to endless re-hashes of Independance Day meets Alien meets The Hills. Yay.
bad movie horrible waste of time
just a bad movie don't waste your money
Excellent special effects, but this movie goes beyond horrible as soon as anyone opens their mouth to speak the ridiculous dialogue. Complete waste of money.
