Angry Movie Lurker Review 15: SKYLINE.(3 STARS)

I saw this recently even with the majority of people not liking it according to other blogs and websites but I am a sucker for an alien invasion movie.The actors in the movie were not really known to me other than knowing them from the TV, Donald Faison (Turk from Scrubs), David Zayas (Angel Batista from Dexter), Scottie Thompson( Tonys girlfriend in NCIS for 16 episodes) but the actors in general are OK but the star are the aliens and the CGI, the aliens are a cross between the matrix sentinels and George Lucas beasts in varying sizes, there are motherships and there are more brains on view here than a good zombie movie.The attack on the mothership by predators and stealth bombers is a highlight,there are F-22 raptors,some ground troops and helicopters as the military fights back but the aliens have a trick up their sleeve and as I said human brains play a lot in this movie.The ending leaves itself open for a sequel but also is the weakest point but only because it irritated me as I felt it was silly.This movie is worth a watch and I would watch it again on DVD but with some fast forwarding but it is a CGI movie and quite good at it.

  1. Sci-fi movies always seems to be either good or bad. Looks like something I wouldn't listen to anyway.

  2. How is it possible that I've never even heard of this movie until just now? I need to get out more.

  3. this movie had so much promise... the ending was just a huge disappointment

  4. I know what you mean about liking bad movies sometimes. I thoroughly enjoy all Steven Seagal movies even though I find them horrible.

  5. I'm a sucker for a good alien invasion flick too, so I watched this after reading your review - it was everything you promised, and threatened! Loved the CGI and the airstrike scene in particular. The characters mostly annoyed me, but that made for good cheering moments when they got dispatched :-)

    Concur with 3 Stars. cheers!
