Edit Storyline In Frankfurt, A young, talented hip-hop producer in Germany signs with a record label where he finds that the worlds of music and organized crime collide.

Edit Did You Know? Was this review helpful to you? Yes No Report this. Add the first question. Country: Germany.

Runtime: 56 min. Sound Mix: Dolby Digital. There was some infighting among the groups of survivors, perhaps less than in some movies but I felt there was still a bit too much of it.

The sympathetic adult our cast befriend has to keep telling one of the young men something like, "Don't bury your head and hope this goes away", "It's real".

When the alien machines turn out to be powered by human brains the guy beside me at the theater cringed.

He had a valid reaction. White people aren't That smart. The evidence isn't looking too good on that.

Besides, brains don't really seem to be what they are after. At times the movie switches into the mode of fantasy. Some of the American aircraft appear to be models we've never seen before and they have odd sizes and shapes not sure I've ever rooted for American airplanes this much before.

At other times the cast remain remarkably unaffected by the action on screen. It's not even just narrow escapes.

Skyline is such an intense movie, and frightening, the fantasy element may help cut down on the tension.

I wonder if the disjointed beginning also keeps the movie from being too frightening. When it's revealed we're sort of fighting ourselves it adds even more creepiness and perhaps provides some afterthoughts of hopelessness to the experience.

Do we ever actually see the aliens? Did they even bother to land on Earth, or just send army sucking probes here? Why didn't the aliens use robot brains instead of harvesting zombies.

Are they tapping into some kind of unknown 'life force'. Is it a matter of invading on a budget? We'll never know unless there's a sequel.

Maybe instead of Alien vs Predator, Cloverfield vs Skyline. Both movies are very similar, actually. Maybe both attacks come from the same intelligence.

A sequel seems unlikely, though, this movie can be summed up with the words 'we lose'. The main thing going for Skyline aside from the fear, action and horror is the ending.

The ending is atypical: bleak, realistic, frightening, with again just a touch of fantasy to ease it through. That aside, Skyline demonstrates that an independently funded film is still feasible, with the usual merits and expected demerits that come with an effects laden movie, but certainly not one that deserved the kind of backlash that it got.

The Brothers Strause Colin and Greg, responsible for AvP Requiem, bring their visual effects wizardry and know-how to making a film that's skewed toward being just that - a special effects extravaganza.

How else can you explain the 10 million dollar effects cost against everything else that was budgeted for 0.

Granted that this film was made on the cheap in Hollywood terms, the look and feel was polished, and there can be no qualms about its effects quality, but the story by Joshua Cordes and Liam O'Donnell let it down somewhat.

Unlike District 9, Skyline didn't have anything new to add to the genre, deciding to repeatedly give audiences what we have already seen in a number of genre films, putting them altogether into a single film, be it the Matrix-like sentinels, large spaceships bursting out of the cloudy sky, War of the Worlds like tension between nasty aliens and humans silently hoping everything will turn out fine, with shadows of Transformers, the harvesting of humans for some dastardly alien plan, an Independence Day equivalent of an all out air strike against the aliens albeit with updated weaponry and planes, or even a human-alien hybrid of sorts that opens up the film for a franchise to happen.

You're begging for one original thought that the filmmakers could come up with, and you'll find it really tough to get one.

What it did successfully translate however, is how everything was doomed from the start, and gradually we get to realize it's no way out for all the characters, since every conceivable plan that they, and we, come up with, get closed, and closed good.

The protagonists are stuck in a penthouse condominium, and escape outside into what's essentially the alien ships vacuum cleaning the entire city of LA of people doesn't sound like a good idea, with the bigger world out there at large, zero communications and a zilch mass media, means questions are constantly raised, with no clear answers.

This fear factor was what I thought the Brothers had successfully translated on screen instead, and frankly will be something quite close to what you or I will do when we panic, and let fear creep in.

After all, aliens of all shapes and sizes, flying or on the ground, forcefully ensures every single human being in their sights get sucked into their bodies in the most unsavoury of terms.

Think of it as reverse birth, where humans get sucked into what's essentially looks like an alien vagina with plenty of goo, mucus and muck, sometimes with the aid of tentacles shaped like umbilical cords.

Bickering is common, with no alpha males stepping up to lead the way because, well, everyone gets picked off one by one.

Characters were expectedly cardboard, although the story did take some unnecessary and uninteresting pains to give us a little bit of a background of those whom we follow.

Alas, somehow there's a profound lack of interest in the rich and famous, who stay in swanky apartments and drive cars with the prancing horse logo.

There isn't the blue collar, hard worker to root for, and seriously, a bunch of rich pansies don't quite cut it for a film like this where it's about survival of the fittest aided by street smarts.

Then again, it does go to show rich or poor, we bite the dust in the same manner when faced with common danger threatening our lives, that Death by way of Aliens or otherwise evens the playing field.

The premise - you're stuck in a building where all else outside, and soon inside turns into Ground Zero, what will you do? And also, I suppose films that trumpet the American military might will get the kind of support it does back home, with films like Independence Day and even Transformers 1 and 2, which made it seem like an advertisement for the US Military.

Here the military response seems muted and had taken a backseat well, the budget could be a prime reason , but for what it can muster with the drones and warplanes, one nuke, and a couple of gung-ho boots on ground heli-dropped to nearby rooftops, it isn't the all out war that many perhaps have wanted to see the US forces driving the unwelcome guests away.

With a more original idea and story development to boot, perhaps Skyline could have lived up to its promises and matched the quality of effects put on screen.

There's a deliberate void of verbatim answers here, with the filmmakers preferring to keep some cards close to their chest, such as an origin of sorts, or explanation why things occur the way they did, since we're observing from the third person point of view, and the narrative hardly following anyone who has got an idea or a remote clue on what's exactly happening.

It's a setup for a follow up film, especially the ending montage, so let's let's hope the area of storytelling gets shored up to develop and add to its mythos.

Duke 12 November Well a lot has been said in a very negative vein on this movie I also don't get where you see your movies? Transformers, Aliens, Predator, Matrix, etc.

The plot or story was OK to, it got quickly to the reason we were there Heck, in the first minutes they did that!! The ending was interesting, and I saw the identification move coming a mile away, but I still like it.

They showed it at least 3 times earlier in the movie so I figured they'd use it sooner or later, like a comedian setting up a joke line for the finish.

I look forward to the sequel and how they couple gets going on in the plot line. Especially since she looks a lot different that he does at the end.

I enjoyed a lot of the previous movies by these brothers My last sci fi movie was District 9 and Avatar, so I do not see many.

Well just got back from seeing this and sorry critics, but me and my wife both enjoyed it. It's not a masterpiece, and not original, but I found it entertaining.

I don't know why people are complaining about a lack of plot, it's basically a slasher movie - lots of dislikable people get knocked of in entertaining ways.

That's worked for many movies before it, and it works here. It's basically a knock off of Cloverfield, and not as good, but still good fun.

It's not a 'Plan 9 from outer space' but it does have a 50s B-movie sensibility about it. I think the only thing it was missing was a bit of humour to acknowledge the basic silliness of all - Independence Day was better in that regard.

I can't say I was one of those really desperate to see this from the trailer, and perhaps lower expectations helped, but it no way deserves the critical panning it has received.

I usually agree with IMDb ratings, but with this one I could not disagree more. Yes, It's certainly not a masterpiece, and doesn't have an incredibly clever or elaborate script, however it has a lot of virtues that deserve a whole lot more than a poor 4.

Another plus is the end: incredibly bizarre and surprising, didn't see it coming. Finally and most important, it kept me interested all the way till the end, which is what a movie should do.

Poor Skyline. After some good early word of mouth, the film hit, and critics hit back. I was surprised to see such hate towards this little sci-fi film, but now I understand why.

This isn't a major film. In that realm, it's one of the best. Had I seen this on the Sci-Fi Channel, it would stand out more. What we have here are two effects wizards, trying to showcase their talent.

Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The film follows a small group during an alien invasion. Most alien invasion films focus on the big wide world outside.

This territory is usually tread by the zombie genre. Pregnant girlfriend, new job offer, affairs hinted at etc.

I liked how it built up to the big scenes. At first, there's a sneaky alien in the home. Then a big bastard outside. Soon there are aerial battles and soldiers.

The effects are a mixed bag. Some of the big aliens look fantastic, but look closely as they interact with the world and you'll see huge flaws.

As Balfour goes hand-to-hand with an alien, it's easy to tell that he was just swinging at nothing. The Brothers Strause can certainly render an effect, or deliver some reliable action, but when they try for their dramatic moments, they often leave it feeling clunky and amateurish.

If you like your B-Movies, then give this a try. Unfortunately, it punched above its weight and ended up being torn apart.

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.

Instead we get destruction without fear and survival without passion. I'm a big sci-fi fan, but I honestly can't remember the last time I was this bored in the theater despite a few moments of great special effects.

Avoid this movie at all costs. Skyline was not the most fantastic movie I've ever seen. While a bit slow to develop the movie does manage to convey a decent feeling of growing panic.

However, the fact of a modest budget to realize a brand new type of alien invasion should earn it a little respect.

That is the main attraction of this movie - New Aliens. The movie doesn't spell out everything you would like to know about the invaders, but you should be able to get the gist of it.

In My humble opinion a larger cast forbidden by this budget would have served the movie well. If a sequel is under consideration it should expand the setting, double the cast and delve a little bit more into the aliens maybe a brief recent history or something.

It's impossible to make an honest review without mentioning my dislike for the one-sided reviews that just want to label it an awful movie and possibly stick us with nothing but a neverending supply of sequels and remakes of already successful franchises.

It really didn't deserve the 9 stars I gave it, but all the supercritics out there were just bagging it so unmercifully that I felt the need for a little counterbalance Bottom line - Skyline is a movie with a lot of potential that wasn't fully realized, but was still very much worth watching.

DavidZAllen 15 November It seems like I'm the only fish in this pond who actually enjoyed this movie.

If you're having high doubts about this movie, then yes, you'll probably confirm those thoughts about this movie. But if you're a big science fiction fan, have a creative and expansive imagination, and love the beauty of alien artwork and a story which makes you feel as if there is actually and alien invasion, then this movie is great.

I watch a lot of movies, a whole lot. To give you a feel for my style, my favorite movie is Avatar, followed by this here Skyline, followed then by The Matrix, The Abyss, Galaxy Quest, and District 9 top six.

The acting was great in my opinion. I think people found it bad because they are used to more script-oriented movies, however this one is much more natural and sounds more realistic, which I guess people mistook for bad acting.

In real life, we aren't all good actors though. Whoever wrote this movie was amazingly creative, the ending was great in my opinion, totally unexpected.

Used a lot of interesting and unique ideas in this movie, such as the blinds on a timer, the alien technology, and the use of telescopes.

Everything had a perfect buildup, showing the audience specific ideas so they could be returned to later during the invasion to make more sense, such as Jarrod putting his hand on his girlfriend's nose.

One thing that rather irritated people was the lack of sensibility from the plot. Two responses to that, one being that it is science fiction, and I believe that the movie viewers have been straying away from what's fun and enjoyable about science fiction, and the second being the purpose of the confusion.

This movie wasn't supposed to be understandable. It's following an experience boots-in-the-mud in which the characters have no clue what exactly is going on, and this feeling is planted into the audiences mind as well, which didn't go down so well I guess, people just complained that they didn't understand it.

Can't wait for the Blu-Ray. Earlier in the day I picked up two tickets for Harry Potter for my daughter and myself. When it came time to leave, my son changed his mind and decided he wanted to go along as well.

Unsurprisingly, the show was sold out, so I had to find something to do for 2 hours. Unfortunately, a screening of Skyline started ten minutes after Harry Potter.

I made the mistake of going to that instead of taking a nap in my car in the parking lot. I never would have imagined that the end of the world could be so boring.

If the aliens need our brains, they definitely should stay away from the people that made this movie.

Those brains are not going to do them any good. I am getting more and more skeptical about the credibility of IMDb reviews and the "grades" people are giving movie.

Anything that doesn't meet this expectation is BAD. We need to be open to new approach to art and judge them within their own context.

At the same time we should also take into account how others feel about movies. But if you are lucky enough to watch Ferocious Planet, then you who think Skyline is the worst movie ever, should question your own ability to rate a movie.

It s all good, your opinion count but undermines IMDb credibility : We need to welcome new ideas. We need to try something new.

So far Skyline is more "humane" rather than the squared box ending that we are used to, making humankind THE all time winner and Master of the universe.

This movie breaks this confidence and people hate it, because it exposes the weakness of mankind. 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.

I found myself hoping they would all get killed. It was a lot like War of the Worlds with Tom Cruise, except not as good.

And that was not a good movie. A movie about aliens destroying the entire world, and you spend it in one room for almost the whole film.

Now this wouldn't be all bad if done right, except the actors are just props and the drama is empty and forced.

I would recommend showing it to film students as an example of how to make an action movie boring. 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.

I've already had my fingers burnt by the Brothers Strause before - when they took 2 much loved franchises in Alien and Predator and made their fans weep.

That film, just like this one, has some cool looking set pieces but absolutely nothing of value to tie them together - totally refusing to give the viewer any reason to care about what they've churned out.

It's not Shakespeare, but if you want that, go and see Shakespeare. Too many reviewers seem to forget that this is just a 50's style B-Movie with updated effects, it doesn't have pretensions other than to be enjoyable.

On that level it works fine. It's better than Independence Day precisely because it is spare on script and characters, ID was spoilt by too many silly and annoying characters and ridiculous plot devices.

This doesn't aim for any more than focusing on a small group in peril and it's all the better and believable for it.

The only one who comes on as real is David Sayas of TV's "Dexter" fame who plays the building supervisor. The writers must have had the notion that audience interest can be sustained if they have the characters yell at one another.

There's no doubt that Strause brothers provide exhilarating special effects - but they need to work on getting a good story to go with their CGI magic.

Otherwise it is just a damn waste. I see many posters claims Skyline is the 'worst movie ever' - that isn't even close to true.

And also way better than Johnny Mnemonic which is the gold standard by which I judge all bad movies. I actually liked Skyline. One poster compared it to a zombie movie and I did notice the similarity when I was watching it.

The plot does have far more in common with a typical zombie movie than you usual alien invasion movie. Also, way more realistic than any alien invasion movie I've ever seen.

Independence Day was fun to watch but it was just cotton candy not serious science fiction. Strange lights awaken and beckon our little group towards them.

For almost minutes you see nothing but the light that frightens and draws people towards it. The conversation among our group is stilted, and actually lacking like you know: dead air for the longest minutes.

Were they waiting for the script to come to them? Very boring. After minutes or so, the aliens make their presence known. Weird looking things.

Kind of octopi with more than 8-arms going every which way. But, the CGI was terrific, I have to admit. The group tries and tries to defeat the aliens and to make some sense of all this.

They should have fought with the Director, Producers and yes, of course, the script writers. I held on because the CGI was really good.

Violence: Yes. Sex: No. Nudity: No. Language: Yes. One lesson I've learned is to not read online reviews before I go see a film as I did not find this movie to be half as bad as the people on this site claim.

After reading that this movie was not even worth renting and that it was the worst film ever made and then seeing it, I didn't think it came close to any of those opinions.

It was far from perfect, but as far as entertainment value I was satisfied. It kept up a good pace with semi-interesting twists and turns.

I even found myself to be holding onto my seat at times wondering what was gonna happen next. I suggest checking it out for yourself and not listening to the scathing reviews on this site.

Aliens descend on Los Angeles out of the blue, surround the young casts condo, and prepare to finish them off, then the movie switches to "15 hours earlier".

What more import information could we possibly need to know, what the characters exchanged for birthday presents? The switch-up kind of made me want to leave the theater.

Instead of wondering, who got what as a housewarming present, I was wondering if the theater would give out a refund 10 minutes into a movie.

Guess I'm OK with skipping character development. Skyline picks up quick enough after the reset, I did like the movie.

In other films, such as the recent District 9, character isn't really developed - the hero's character is revealed as he's exposed to greater and greater stress.

I should admit I'm a fool for these alien invasion movies, I even give Battlefield Earth 8 of 10 stars. Some of the dialogue in Skyline seems a bit off, but at least it's not safe, politically correct or predictable.

At times the dialogue is off on purpose. When one of the characters says something like, "we're OK now" you just know something really bad is about to happen.

It's almost a cue. Other's have already taken parts of the movie as a metaphor for rampant consumerism.

I felt the attack was a metaphor for the 'illegal alien' invasion of the present day. More specifically, I guess, a replay of the phenomenon of black guys sleeping with a lot I assume of white girls.

Tragedy after tragedy befall our young heroes and in the end one of the young girls sums it all up by saying, "I hate Los Angeles".

In no way is it funny. There was some infighting among the groups of survivors, perhaps less than in some movies but I felt there was still a bit too much of it.

The sympathetic adult our cast befriend has to keep telling one of the young men something like, "Don't bury your head and hope this goes away", "It's real".

When the alien machines turn out to be powered by human brains the guy beside me at the theater cringed.

He had a valid reaction. White people aren't That smart. The evidence isn't looking too good on that. Besides, brains don't really seem to be what they are after.

The plot or story was OK to, it got quickly to the reason we were there Heck, in the first minutes they did that!! The ending was interesting, and I saw the identification move coming a mile away, but I still like it.

They showed it at least 3 times earlier in the movie so I figured they'd use it sooner or later, like a comedian setting up a joke line for the finish.

I look forward to the sequel and how they couple gets going on in the plot line. Especially since she looks a lot different that he does at the end.

I enjoyed a lot of the previous movies by these brothers My last sci fi movie was District 9 and Avatar, so I do not see many.

Well just got back from seeing this and sorry critics, but me and my wife both enjoyed it. It's not a masterpiece, and not original, but I found it entertaining.

I don't know why people are complaining about a lack of plot, it's basically a slasher movie - lots of dislikable people get knocked of in entertaining ways.

That's worked for many movies before it, and it works here. It's basically a knock off of Cloverfield, and not as good, but still good fun.

It's not a 'Plan 9 from outer space' but it does have a 50s B-movie sensibility about it. I think the only thing it was missing was a bit of humour to acknowledge the basic silliness of all - Independence Day was better in that regard.

I can't say I was one of those really desperate to see this from the trailer, and perhaps lower expectations helped, but it no way deserves the critical panning it has received.

I usually agree with IMDb ratings, but with this one I could not disagree more. Yes, It's certainly not a masterpiece, and doesn't have an incredibly clever or elaborate script, however it has a lot of virtues that deserve a whole lot more than a poor 4.

Another plus is the end: incredibly bizarre and surprising, didn't see it coming. Finally and most important, it kept me interested all the way till the end, which is what a movie should do.

Poor Skyline. After some good early word of mouth, the film hit, and critics hit back. I was surprised to see such hate towards this little sci-fi film, but now I understand why.

This isn't a major film. In that realm, it's one of the best. Had I seen this on the Sci-Fi Channel, it would stand out more.

What we have here are two effects wizards, trying to showcase their talent. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. The film follows a small group during an alien invasion.

Most alien invasion films focus on the big wide world outside. This territory is usually tread by the zombie genre. Pregnant girlfriend, new job offer, affairs hinted at etc.

I liked how it built up to the big scenes. At first, there's a sneaky alien in the home. Then a big bastard outside.

Soon there are aerial battles and soldiers. The effects are a mixed bag. Some of the big aliens look fantastic, but look closely as they interact with the world and you'll see huge flaws.

As Balfour goes hand-to-hand with an alien, it's easy to tell that he was just swinging at nothing.

The Brothers Strause can certainly render an effect, or deliver some reliable action, but when they try for their dramatic moments, they often leave it feeling clunky and amateurish.

If you like your B-Movies, then give this a try. Unfortunately, it punched above its weight and ended up being torn apart.

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.

Instead we get destruction without fear and survival without passion. I'm a big sci-fi fan, but I honestly can't remember the last time I was this bored in the theater despite a few moments of great special effects.

Avoid this movie at all costs. Skyline was not the most fantastic movie I've ever seen. While a bit slow to develop the movie does manage to convey a decent feeling of growing panic.

However, the fact of a modest budget to realize a brand new type of alien invasion should earn it a little respect. That is the main attraction of this movie - New Aliens.

The movie doesn't spell out everything you would like to know about the invaders, but you should be able to get the gist of it.

In My humble opinion a larger cast forbidden by this budget would have served the movie well. If a sequel is under consideration it should expand the setting, double the cast and delve a little bit more into the aliens maybe a brief recent history or something.

It's impossible to make an honest review without mentioning my dislike for the one-sided reviews that just want to label it an awful movie and possibly stick us with nothing but a neverending supply of sequels and remakes of already successful franchises.

It really didn't deserve the 9 stars I gave it, but all the supercritics out there were just bagging it so unmercifully that I felt the need for a little counterbalance Bottom line - Skyline is a movie with a lot of potential that wasn't fully realized, but was still very much worth watching.

DavidZAllen 15 November It seems like I'm the only fish in this pond who actually enjoyed this movie. If you're having high doubts about this movie, then yes, you'll probably confirm those thoughts about this movie.

But if you're a big science fiction fan, have a creative and expansive imagination, and love the beauty of alien artwork and a story which makes you feel as if there is actually and alien invasion, then this movie is great.

I watch a lot of movies, a whole lot. The first half of Beyond Skyline is pretty good. Once we peek inside the alien ship things start to get really interesting.

This is where the film really shines. It really builds up a nice momentum and keeps you interested. But by the time the movie is half way through, things start to take a turn for the worse.

The plot starts to get lazy, the characters start to behave oddly and the whole thing starts to fall apart.

This is done in a gradual but heavy handed manner. By the time the movie reaches it final stages, you're not going to care for it anymore.

Because the mystique is gone and because the mighty aliens are now being slaughtered in melee combat by some very vulnerable humans.

But nothing can rival the final 5 minutes of the movie. You thought slaughtering aliens in heavy armor with knives was over the top?

You haven't seen anything yet! All in all, the movie is quite entertaining but it could have been much better.

I feel the story could have worked if the movie had more time to develop it in a natural way. In its current form it just feels rushed and quite frankly stupid.

Nevertheless, I feel Beyond Skyline deserves a watch and would recommend it to sci-fi fans. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.
