Why Nobody Should Ever Try Anything New
2 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

Skyline was not the most fantastic movie I've ever seen. . While a bit slow to develop the movie does manage to convey a decent feeling of growing panic. However, the fact of a modest budget to realize a brand new type of alien invasion should earn it a little respect. That is the main attraction of this movie - New Aliens. It's not more predators or "aliens" aliens or new twist on greys(AKA - Independence day) but actual New Aliens. The movie doesn't spell out everything you would like to know about the invaders, but you should be able to get the gist of it. In My humble opinion a larger cast(forbidden by this budget) would have served the movie well. If a sequel is under consideration it should expand the setting, double the cast and delve a little bit more into the aliens(maybe a brief recent history or something). It's impossible to make an honest review without mentioning my dislike for the one-sided reviews that just want to label it an awful movie and possibly stick us with nothing but a neverending supply of sequels and remakes of already successful franchises. It really didn't deserve the 9 stars I gave it, but all the supercritics out there were just bagging it so unmercifully that I felt the need for a little counterbalance

Bottom line - Skyline is a movie with a lot of potential that wasn't fully realized, but was still very much worth watching. Give it a chance - it's kind of a mix of independence day/war of the worlds/the mist.
