Skyline

December 3, 2010

skylineMy good lady and I went to see the film Skyline last week and after some deliberation I find that I can not recommend it, And must advise that you do not waste your money. However I will admit it was not a terrible film it was just not as advertised.

When I say not as advertised I mean it was not what I would call a SCI-FI film, Sure it had cool space ships and cool aliens and some real cool special effects but these elements were not the story, They were what I would call the stressor. Now the issue I have is the stressor in this film could have been anything for example war, murder, robbery, even a car accident. As I said the aliens and spaceships were merely the stressor not the story,  I would say there was not a story (There was what I would call a weak outline) it was more a exploration of the human condition and how people interact when presented with a external stressor where they have no control, so as I say not so much a film that fits the standard  SCI-Fi  genre definition.

The other big issue I have with this film is there was no conclusion or specific comment on the moral actions of the character’s the film just ended. I am unsure if this was intended to get the viewer to envisage the next stage based on what experience they took from the film or alternatively it has been left as such to ensure the possibility of a sequel without giving any clue to a possible plot as the end was so ambiguous.

      Don’t get me wrong it’s a ok movie or a DVD hire movie but to spend £20 for cinema or £10-20 on a DVD or Blu-Ray is a bit of a strech.
