The filmmakers shot a test trailer on Thanksgiving 2009, while the writers started developing the treatment, marking less than a year from the blank page to the big screen.
Factual errors: The design of the F-22 Raptor that crashes over the actors is incorrect. It shows two exhaust nozzles like the F-18 Hornet or Mig-27. The F-22 Raptor are designed completely different with variable geometry nozzles and IR deflection. Also because of this, the F-22 doesn't take that long to turn around as depicted in the movie.

SkyFAIL , rated: 1/10
By far the worst movie I've seen in maybe ten years. I would watch any crappy hand-held straight to video D class movie before watching this again. Not only was the story a poor rehash of every invasion movie you have ever seen, the directing was TERRIBLE. People stop blaming the actors! Start blaming the writers! There was no direction, no plot, no overall theme, no reason to see this film at all. Well other than the special effects, but honestly it kind of made you sad seeing these awesome effects tied up in the world most crappiest storyline (which was no storyline).
Believe me, within the first 15 minutes you will want every major character to die a horrible, horrible, agonizing death. And at the end of the movie you will wish death upon the Brother's Strauss. Skip it don't even watch it on Netflix. You have been warned.
