The Sky Has Fallen (2009) Review:

The Sky Has Fallen is a low budget action/zombie movie featuring a couple of young people trying to put an end to the infection. For those who have seen Ryûhei Kitamura’s Versus, you will recognize the obvious influence, with the gun & katana fighting, the woods settings, etc.

The practical special effects are beautiful and easily the best thing about this movie. They are in the same style as that ultra-gory Japanese splatter such as Meatball Machine or Tokyo Gore Police. The storytelling is decent too, with lots of flashbacks inserted between the survival and action scenes, helping you to know the characters as the story goes. But overall the movie lacks punch and surprises. There is not so much happening overall, only two characters meeting up and teaming up during the apocalypse, revealing their secrets to each other’s as they go. Only the presence of the dark mysterious figures makes the story stand out a little, but just not enough.

The main turn-off for me was the lack of charisma of the main actor, who really doesn’t impersonate with the “modern-time samurai” aspect of his character. The action scenes are a bit lame too, there a good amount of gore throughout all movie, but the katana fight is dull.


Overall The Sky Has Fallen is an indie horror that is watchable thanks to its superb practical special effects, but one that will fail to leave its mark.
