It was supposed to be a simple birthday weekend in Southern California. But when sunrise arrives two hours early in the form of a haunting light from an unknown source, a group of friends watches in terror as people across the city are drawn outside and swept into massive alien ships that have blotted out the L.A. skyline. From tankers to drones and hydra-like extraterrestrials, the aliens are inescapable and seemingly indestructible.

To each his own! This is one of my favorite alien invasion movies. It does have a unexplained disjointed ending, but it does hold your attention to the end of the movie.

A movie that felt like it was 'made for TV'. The only redeeming quality was an interesting ending, that made me wish the movie began during the last 15 minutes and continued from there. Generally though, its not worth the time.

Wow, I honestly do not know where all of these negative reviews are coming from !

While I wouldn't put it at the top of my all-time list, I thoroughly enjoyed this film and it belongs with the greats in the realm of Sci-Fi.

A perfect blend of suspense, horror, adventure, action romance and comedy lead you on a thrill-ride that seems over far too soon.

Perhaps these negative reviews stem from the fact that there is a lack of star power on this cast. Don't let that fool you, while no awards will be held out for this film, it certainly is worth picking up for the average Sci-fi fan or the average action-adventure lover.

Wooden acting (doesn't help that the characters are flat), horrible script. I laughed through all of the serious scenes because of how ridiculous they were. And the ending? I literally face-palmed.

I enjoyed this movie. I didn't expect anything great when borrowing it anyway. The ending was the best part, reminding me of something from a comic book. I wanted to see more, but then the credits ran. Aww, too bad. My daughter got a kick out of it too.

From start to finish Skyline is a poor movie. The first half of the movie has no relevance to the alien invasion. Set in LA an alien force attacks and it appears their invasion will succeed. There's no explanation of who the aliens are nor their motives. Some of the special effects are interesting but overall this movie is not worth watching..

Some of the special effects are not bad. Rest of the movie, unfortunately, is a turd. Story, script, acting are just terrible. Not worth seeing.
