I have heard several good things about the film Skyline (2010), so I jumped at the chance of catching it on Blu-ray.
To everyone out there who had potive things to say, I only have one question...How many drugs are you on?
This was one of the worst movies I have seen. EVER. And I see a lot of crappy movies.
This movie was such a catastrophe I don't even know where to start.
I guess I will begin with the completely unimpresve and poor cast, leading into the most shallow plot I've come in contact with in ages.
Jerrod, played by Eric Balfour, (24, Haven, Saving Grace, and other things no one has ever really seen let alone enjoyed) is the main character. Alongde him is his pregnant girlfriend Elaine, played by Scottie Thompson (NCIS, Trauma, Brotherhood, and even more things that I've never heard of) They head out to LA to vit Jarrods best friend Terry played by Donald Faison, (Turk from Scrubs...need I say more) and his wife Candice played by Brittany Daniel (really the only player with a decent resume, most well known to me as the Trannie from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia.)
Now that you have some idea as to the pitiful cast we are working with, we can dive into the plot.
Bacally, as I said, Jarrod and Elaine go to vit Terry in LA.
After a night of partying they awake to find the skyline filled with alien spaceships.
My ster and I spent a good deal of time trying to figure out how to describe these disasters.
Imagine a CGI War of the Worlds alien and a Transformer had a really lame baby.
The aliens are beyond horrible.
Essentially what follows is (blessedly only 94 minutes) of everyone running around like chickens with their heads cut off.
They try to escape, they try to fight back, they hope someone will save them, in the end they have no real plan, and really none of them seem like they are dying to live.
Even with the sub-plot of Elaine being pregnant, this movie has zero emotion. The Aliens are here for one thing, which I won't give away lest you still inst on seeing this movie, but let me say, it's not even that interesting.
The movie had no plot outde of "OMG ALIENS", therefore there was no arc, no climax, and you were given roughly 15 minutes of the beginning of the movie to get to know the characters.
So I personally wasn't really invested in any of their well being.
The movie was just a mess, between the poor cast, and the complete lack of dialogue, it was imposble to even make fun of. The ending was even more ridiculous, I'm still stunned at the stupidity.
Usually with a bad movie I can drudge up one potive thing to say, but I have been wracking my brain for an hour and cannot think of anything.
I'm begging everyone out there to not waste a cent on this awful movie.If you have aliens on the brain, rent Independence Day, The Fourth Kind, or hell, just rent Aliens
I've seen more emotionally, plot driven commercials.
Oh and despite the following being the official trailer, half of the things from this trailer, were not even in the movie. I don't know who edited this, but they win for epic fail.
