Skyline (2010)

When it's over, I wanted more and was disappointed that there wasn't any left. Skyline's premise of aliens taking over earth was straightforward enough, and it managed to keep me interested until the moment the credits rolled right at the "cliffhanger" scene when the idea that humanity may yet prevail.  It was clear the filmmakers were counting on a sequel, but honestly, for a small film such as this one with relatively unknown actors, it's a gamble to assume a sequel would follow.  Some scenes were knockoffs of other alien abduction films, but I still enjoyed the slim, blood, and the struggle between humans vs aliens.  My only wish would be that the film should have had some closure and maybe a possible hint of a sequel rather than end abruptly after what I felt was the second act.

My rating: 3 out of 5
