Skyline – Film Review

(12A, 100 MINS)

Director: Brothers Strause
Starring: Eric Balfour, Scottie Thompson, Donald Faison, David Zayas. 

From directing double act Greg and Colin Strause (Alien trilogy), 2010’s American alien invasion motion picture Skyline looks set to leave audiences in a state of panic, as aliens find their way to Earth once again. On paper, it seems Skyline holds a more traditional plot that has been seen many times before, but director Colin Strause has promised the film will ‘blow the minds of any viewer.’

When a strange light descends on the city of Los Angeles, an unusual act of human behaviour begins, as a series of lights soon start to pick off the population one by one. Trying to escape the world above them, a small group of friends must do everything they can to resist giving into temptation which could see them vanish for good.

Tipped as the Independence Day of the new decade, Skyline looks set to offer a show reel of visual effects on-screen, with the help of visual effects company Hydraulx, who have provided the latest in visual technology to some of cinema’s most successful box-office pictures in recent years. (Avatar, 2012, The Day After Tomorrow)

Gaining world-wide media attention, and receiving harsh criticism to the resemblance of Jonathan Liebesman’s up and coming 2011 science fiction picture Battle:Los Angeles, Skyline’s £20million movie budget is sure to impress audiences all over and with the help of a predominantly male cast, including Eric Balfour (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Scottie Thompson (Star Trek) and Donald Faison (Academy Boyz) Skyline will no doubt leave its mark in cinema Sci-fi when it is released in cinemas later this month.
