Technically ambitious, dramatically basic. Still, it's a major step up from an AvP sequel and delivers all the Saturday night whizz-bang and Sunday morning brain-ripping you could want.

Boxoffice Magazine
This sci-fi thriller manages to blend genuine suspense with unintentional laughs.
38
Their (The Brothers Strause) effects are pretty good, on a fairly limited budget. And that's about all you can say for Skyline.
30
Beyond the dazzling "first contact" sequences seen in the trailers, Skyline is a spasmodic and incoherent shambles hampered by an astoundingly stupid screenplay.
25
The Strauses don't care about how to keep an audience. Their movie has no sense of suspense or dread - Skyline is an apocalypse movie that plods like one of Romero's zombies.
25
So intent are the Strausses on showing off their visual chops, they leave the film's story, dialogue and acting in shambles.

Orlando Sentinel
Skyline plays like an effects guru's resume reel, not a movie.
20
Skyline is a piece of junk, even in a movie climate littered with expensive - though sometimes fun - junkiness.
20
It's finally here: The most boring alien-invasion movie ever.
12
Just plain bad. Boring. Unwatchable.
