Movie: Skyline (2010)

Soon, our first encounter will become our last stand.

Skyline (2010) is a sci-fi movie centered on alien invasion.

Synopsis: Jarrod (Eric Balfour) and his fiancee, Elaine (Scottie Thompson) arrive in Los Angeles to celebrate Terry's (Donald Faison) birthday at Terry's posh condo. After a night of heavy partying, they are awakened in the early hours by mysterious beams of blue light. Those who gaze on the light will vanish mysteriously into thin air. It might be too late when they realize that aliens have begun their invasion to devour the entire human population. Can they outrun the aliens and save their own lives?

Well, after watching this movie, I'd say it's a complete waste of time. Why? Here are my reasons.

Storyline: Skyline's storyline isn't something extraordinarily new. Independence Day (1996) is a much, much better movie. Oh, I think Skyline is also very much like a toned-down version of the Predator series without the awesome predators.

Special effects: Being a low-budget alien invasion movie, Skyline is filled with effects that aren't any special. If you want fantastic special effects, Transformers and Terminator Salvation win hands down.

Acting: Skyline is filled with unnecessary human melodrama, especially among Jarrod, Elaine, Terry, Terry's girlfriends, Candice and Denise, and Terry's driver, Oliver. Their silly arguments and cat fights make them look like dumb idiots trying to do and say something that make sense, perhaps just to fill up the screening time.

Overall, I don't really recommend this movie unless you want to waste your time watching how sinister and destructive the aliens can be.
