      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A middling sci-fi entry, Skyline offers proof that solid special effects alone cannot overcome a flat storyline filled with uninspired dialogue.

      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader Visual-effects wizards Greg and Colin Strause directed, showing more affinity for the city's steel and glass than for any of the characters. Jan 4, 2011 Full Review Jim Schembri The Age (Australia) Wait for the DVD and you won't miss a thing. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 17, 2010 Full Review Wesley Morris Boston Globe These aren't moviemakers who live even in other movies, let alone the world. They live in hard drives. Rated: 1/4 Nov 15, 2010 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It’s low-budget fare that, much like the aliens in the movie, disguises itself with glimmering blue surfaces if only to slowly suck your brains out. Rated: 1/4 Aug 3, 2023 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault The human characters are generally so dumb that one wonders why the aliens are so keen to collect their brains. Rated: D Oct 4, 2022 Full Review James McMahon NME (New Musical Express) Bombastic CGI heavy sci-fi... Rated: 3/5 May 25, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Miranda A Alien wise, it's top notch. Story wise? It's mediocre. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Emilliano Jr S One of the worst sci-fi movies ever made. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/01/24 Full Review Lee R Not bad, surprised the reviews are so low. It's definitely a cool idea. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Clay W You know how sometimes you can tell within the furst 5-minutes a movie is going to utterly suck? This is one of those. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/20/24 Full Review Rea K I was disappointed in the first movie. The 2 and 3 movies were way better. The storyline wasn't that great, the acting was okay. The CGI was the best part of the movie, but other than that this movie was very disappointing. I think they should remake it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/14/23 Full Review Greek2Me64 I thought it started out like a "fresh" approach to "War of the Worlds", great special effects, acting was decent (though somewhat predictable...) My BIGGEST complaint was that movies should be REQUIRED to put a disclaimer, a notification, SOMETHING at the beginning that clearly states, "This is just a two hour pilot for a series with which we hope to generate funding in order to film the REST of the story at some indeterminate time in the future..." No plot resolution at end, more of a "cliff hanger"! If I had ANY inkling how it would end, I would not have invested an entire evening watching it! End the STORY for cryin' out loud!
