SKYLINE (The Brothers Strause)


People who have seen SKYLINE and dissed it either disliked the ending, or felt that much of the movie was borrowed from CLOVERFIELD, and a subpar version at that, but SKYLINE is much more than a rehashed alien movie; the film creates an air of claustrophobia, and those blue lights are pretty amazing. 

I knew that aliens will triumph in the end (as if you haven't heard it already!) but the Strause Brothers conjures a final act twist reminiscent of District 9, and is equally disturbing, too. 

More than just an alien Sci-Fi movie, SKYLINE proves to be a successful tale of humanity and survival, of death and rebirth. 

RATING: 3/5
