Dark Skies, with Josh Hamilton & Keri Russell. Director, Scott Stewart. An astonishingly, sufficient film about abduction. I have to say that because that’s what the film is about. Hopefully, it’s not spoiling it for anyone. The trailer implied all this anyway, as I remember.
What could otherwise have been a rotten film, was saved by good acting & minimal special effects. Cheap actors would have made this a joke & Hamilton & Russell are each fairly sound actors. Creating a drama with the story that was believable because of their talent.
Yes, there were flaws. Part of a dialogue contained a mistaken reference to the day the character was speaking about. The conversation being in the middle of the night & the incident referenced was the day before; but “today” was cited. There was an incident that caused the family’s house to be soiled on the outside & before you know it the structure was clean as if there had been no required effort to make it so. These little things stood out.
I recommend the film as a time killer. The imperfections were trivial, though I noticed them as they happened, instead of in retrospect. It’s not a bad movie. Therefore; something to see. Better than watching local news or some offensively, ridiculous reality show. I’d rather hear/see a store than watching a dance competition, any day.
