One of the saddest things I see are movies that have potential, but wind up falling on thier face. The movie Jumper comes to mind. Well, Skyline is a prime example. Made by laptop film makers, the Strause brothers, this movie is just a rehash of better movies like Independence Day, and War of the Worlds. That being said, it had a "hipster" feel to it, and did have some exciting parts. All that hard work though is destroyed by a terrible final 30 minutes.
The movie was a somewhat good movie if you are looking for robotic like characters in a movie. The story line though was lack luster in that you are basically seeing only one side from the two main characters perspective of the store that could be more dramatically involving if you could see things from the military and alien perspectives as well. In fact, the movie never once mentions why the aliens have come or exactly what they do with the people they abduct besides using their brains to power robotic like bodies.
