"Skyline": Holiday movie expedition 3

Just watched “Skyline” and good news is that in an apocalyptic alien invasion, Paris emerges unharmed by an army of brain eating extra-terrestrial beings. New York, London, and Frankfurt are not as lucky.

There are several, mixed reviews of the rest of the movie. On one hand. there seems to be general agreement that the movie does well in creating and presenting brilliant special effects. Whether the plot, characters and themes are compelling is doubtful in the minds of many professional movie critics. It seems to be performing decently at box offices worldwide.

I left the movie with the sense that the makers of the film left plenty of room for improvement un-used. They clearly tried their best with what they had available to them – a small cast of characters and widely reported budgetary constraints. But, I’ll leave cinematic criticism to expert opinion!
