    I liked it, i watched it at the IMAX (not enhanced by IMAX just the massive screen). Good entertaining movie, it's like your in a video game!

    apologies for being annoying, but its Los Angeles

    It was ok, but I thought it was a scifi film, was more like a war film, so probably depends what you are expecting on how good you think it is!

    Thought it was crap tbh.

    i,ll watch it tomorrow morning and post back my opion,cheers for feedback

    I thought it was mediocre. Uninteresting characters, poor enemy design, loads of superfluous scenes and plot holes. Wasn't even good to turn your mind off to. Colours in the film range from yellow to brown.

    For instance, it takes a troop to down a single one of the aliens (spoiler alert: don't read the preceding sentence if you don't like spoilers) at the start of the film with 1000 bullets and a grenade. Then, for no reason whatsoever, they take one shot and go down. It's like the characters level up oO

    They took one of them alive and dissected it to see where the vital point was, so that they know where to shoot it.

    Pirates do returns now?

    This film is terrible, seriously bad, I can normally watch 'bad' american movies but I really struggled to sit though this.

    Try and count the ammount of times they say 'staff seargent' - The 10th time really grated on me...

    I liked the idea of it but the execution was a little lacking, the cinematography was a bit bland and they didn't really give the characters a story arc but it was enjoyable enough.

    I do think that the central concept of 'black hawk down meets war of the worlds' is a great one, so in better hands could have a great sequel.

    Late reply, sorry! No, I did see where they used a vet's extra-terrestrial expertise to work out where to kill it. A small water-sac thing located behind a load of armour and flesh that took them ages to get to, let alone shoot and never seemed to be communicated to the rest of the squad. Who proceeded to down them from 200 metres away with single shots.

    I wanted it to be awesome. Ended up being tacky and very very cringeworthy, due to the speeches and overall patriotism involved.

    The script did seem like it had been written with a crayon.

    They have made a good profit so a sequel isn't out of the question but I would hope they give it to a director who can handle action better.

    so all 1000 bullets fired at the first one missed the vital part? Its a nonsense film from start to finish but hilarious dialog helps it a little. It makes Rambo look like a work of geniuses.

    Liked it...brainless fun


    However after watching skyline every other sci fi film has been immensely enjoyable!

    I CAN'T STAND: SHAKY HAND CAMERA GUY.

    What is it with American film makers??? They get ready to film and are like: "I know, if we give the camera to an alzheimer's patient with liquid nitrogen in his pants, sitting on a washing machine in Japan during a 9.5 earthquake it will look realistic!"

    jeez I'd love a 1000 bullets with that guy.

    Ah... you have a point. Funnily at work in the kitchen last week I heard someone mention "the worst film Ive ever sat through"...... then mentioned Skyline. I just laughed and said "agreed"

    There are similarities in these films. And yes agreed splat - shaky cameraman needs shooting.
