Skyline Movie Review Round-Up: Disappointing Response
The new alien invasion-based science-fiction movie “Skyline” opens up in theaters across North America today (Friday, November 12th), so we thought we’d take a look at a few of the already-released reviews to see what the critics have to say about the new film.
Firstly I took a look at a review from otownrog over at orlandosentinel.com. This review describes “Skyline” as a “special effects experiment in search of a movie.” The reviewer says that there is no urgency in the storyline, and the acting is more suited to television than a movie.
Next up is a review from liverpoolecho.co.uk, which doesn’t rate the movie that much either. This review says that the screenwriters appear to have just recycled complete scenes from other blockbuster movies, and put them all together to create a basic story documenting alien invasion.
This review finishes off by saying that the movie may keep you entertained for the 92 minutes running time, but as soon as you walk out of the theater you would have forgotten about it. The final review I read was from Megan Lehmann over at hollywoodreporter.com.
Unfortunately, this review rates the movie even worse. Dreadful acting is one of the things I picked up on, as well as bad dialogue and an astoundingly stupid screenplay. This reviewer describes “Skyline” as “a joyless slog through indecipherable action and even murkier cinematography.”
You can read the full reviews via the links provided above. Feel free to let us know what you think of the movie if you do go and watch it.
