Kazed reviews: Skyline (2010)

Synopsis: Strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth

I'll keep this short. This film was wtf. The film could've done without the first 15 minutes. For realsies. It was complete and utter nonsense. Wasn't needed, wasn't required, wasn't needed, wasn't required. Was.not.needed.

Let me give you my list of shit that pierced my rectum for this film:

  • The Aliens are never explained.
  • Over usage of slow motion, I mean, what the eff? It's used at the most unnecessary time, it really pulled on my pubes.
  • The shitty acting
  • How it tried to be different with it's handheld-style camera work. Newsflash, dumbass, it's been done.
  • The shitty acting
  • The shitty acting

Really, it was a recipe for disaster. The guy from 24, (Eric Balfour) was (I guess) the main character in this here flick, and to be honest with you, I didn't care. Truthfully speaking, the only commendable aspect for the film was the visuals, but even then, it was like two occasions.

So, watching it was not that unbearable, it was a watchable film, but then it got to the last 10 minutes, and OH MY GOD. Seriously, what were they thinking? How is that EVEN possible? (Now, for those of you who haven't seen it, <scroll over for SPOILERS> a guy dies, his brain is somehow 'special' compared to others, so this brain gets implanted into one of these aliens, and this alien he becomes, saves his fianceé from possible termination. So then- forget it. Just don't watch it, I beg you) It just didn't make any sense whatsoever, then again, neither did the rest of the film, but this was just blerg.

Anyway, gets a 3/10 from me.
