“..the biggest problem with "Dark Skies" is that Stewart can never quite decide just what story he is telling - a slow-burn horror parable or paranoid invasion flick..”
by Mark Olsen [LA Times]
Review rate : C+

“..once a horror film has to explain the inexplicable, it loses its mystique-and Dark Skies didn't bank that much mystique to begin with..”
by Scott Tobias [A.V. Club]
2.5 of 4

“..mostly, though, it all ends up feeling like a lost, minor episode of "The X-Files:" A little scary, a little silly and catnip for those who want to believe..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
2 of 5

“..it's also true that the most forgettable thriller can be elevated by a committed cast, which is definitely the case here..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
“..in a genre that so rarely delivers what it promises, this horror flick never lets up on the jolts..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
1.5 of 4

“..Dark Skies is the definitive horror film for the Tea Party era. That's scarier than the aliens themselves..”

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN :

“..Mr. Dynamite may finally be Gibney's most psychologically and socially perceptive film to date..”
by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
