At least they tried,
This review is from: Skyline [DVD] (DVD)
This deserved a bigger budget, as there is the germ of a good idea and a good film here.
The final result is actually pretty weak, for it is has weaknesses in almost every film-making aspect.
However, in offering a few semi-original ideas on its obviously tiny budget, it deserves a bit of respect, and is way better than the truly dreadful contemporay movie Battle: Los Angeles.
The traditional small group theme works quite well, and yeah, it ain't brilliant, but it ain't so bad either.
Give it a chance, anyway. It deserves that.
