It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a movie that’s captured my imagination like Forbidden Sky. This film is a gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller that will leave you both on the edge of your seat and deeply contemplating the human condition.
Forbidden Sky is the story of a small town radio host who, after receiving a frantic call from a listener, suddenly finds himself mediator between an alien race and Earth. The caller begs the radio host to keep talking, as she’s the only one who can prevent the aliens from destroying the planet. The radio host obliges, and through his conversation with the caller, we learn about the alien race’s culture, their values, and their beliefs.
The movie does an excellent job of creating sympathy for both the aliens and humans, making us question which side is truly in the wrong. While the aliens are painted as amoral and destructive, we also see their deep sense of duty to their own people, and their fear of change. The humans, on the other hand, are shown to be capable of great compassion and bravery, but also fallible and prone to making mistakes.
In the end, both sides must grapple with difficult choices, and it is those choices that will determine the fate of not just two races, but two worlds.
Forbidden Sky is a must-see for anyone who enjoys a good thriller. It’s expertly crafted, with characters that you can’t help but root for (or against). The film leaves you thinking long after it’s over, and it’s sure to start some interesting conversations among friends and family. Whether you’re looking for entertainment or food for thought (or both), Forbidden Sky delivers.
