Excerpt: Het moet lukken dat ik World Invasion: Battlefield Los Angeles eerst gezien heb. Ik begrijp waarom er juridisch gerommel was over inbreuken qua verhaallijn. Dat de FX hetzelfde lijkt is niet verwonderlijk. Dezelfde firma, dezelfde artiesten en dezelfde software. Geen van beide films deden me veel. Maar deze was wel het zwakke broertje. Een TV budget versie waarbij beknibbeld was op scenario, acteurs, filmmuziek en op edit.
Excerpt: I thought any science fiction movie involving an alien invasion on blu-ray would be worth seeing. Thus wanted to give it a fair shot. I was wrong! The movie had potential, but the plot was so negative that I would only watch something like this if I were in the mood for being depressed and wanting to kill myself.
Excerpt: Out of all the sci-fi films out there (live action OR animated), none are more hilarious than "Skyline", an epic failure from the Brothers Strause. The movie was made for about $10 million (of their own money), but looks like it was made for $10,000. And it shows. The film stars Eric Balfour, Donald Faison, Scottie Thompson and among others in career-destroying roles as people who witness an alien invasion at an LA high-rise.
Excerpt: I just rented this from the redbox and I just wanted to say that this is definitely the worst movie i've seen this year so far. The story was completely poor, the script was TERRIBLE (cringe-worthy acting/dialogues), and the director was just a bad choice for this movie (painfully bad subplots). The directing style literally ruined the movie because it is so unconventional (in a bad way).
Summary: It's rare that I'll give a movie an 'awful' review - I can usually find something of interest, even if it's only of interest to me! Having just been to see Skyline however, I felt numbed and cheated - I hadn't paid, but I still felt I was owed some money back... With no likable characters, a 'plot' that goes from bad to worse to literally nothing, it's difficult to recommend anything about the movie.
Summary: This is easily the worst movie I've seen this year. It's saying something when the writing is so bad that even an end-of-the-world alien invasion can't stop boring you senseless. The characters are passive participants to the events around them. Sure they scream on cue, but their lives and struggles are devoid of feeling and emotions. The film lacks the frantic pace of the somewhat similar Cloverfield where the characters and their environment felt desperate and chaotic.
Summary: Skyline was probably the worst piece of crap I've seen in a long time. Just when I thought it was finally over, it got even worse. Just picture a bad version of Independence Day, but instead of following the exciting people who will save the planet, you sit in a room with the most annoying people on Earth. I liked the concept with the Cloverfield feel without the camcorder shakiness. But you never get the feeling that you care what happens to these people.
Summary: Skyline was the worst movie of 2010. Worst Acting, worst storyline and worst
directing. The only good point in this movie is the graphics. I give this movie
Basically, the main plot was about aliens coming to Earth for human brains.
