Critic Reviews for Skyman

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

Come, if you must, with the guarantee of a shriek-y climax, but stay for Selle's impressive feature-film debut, and Myrick's inquisitive, and ultimately sympathetic, look at those who remain on the fringes of the fringe.

Before its messy climax, "Skyman" works well as a tragicomic look at the nature of extraterrestrial obsessives.

Subdued and temperate, "Skyman" refuses to lean into the mystery of Carl's claims or wind us up for a final resolution.

Supposedly chronicling the experiences of a man attempting to reconnect with the alien form he encountered as a child, Skyman squanders whatever potential thrills it might have offered with its lackluster execution.

'Skyman' serves as a message to people: don't keep holding onto the past in the hopes that it'll return, because you'll miss what's happening now. Life may be out there, but there's also life here on Earth, and that is your family and friends.

Skyman definitely reignites that sense of cosmic wonder you may have felt while pondering the possibility of other intelligent life in the universe, but the encounter itself isn't particularly awe-inspiring.
