Editorial Reviews

A mysterious disease is spreading across the country, killing people with alarming speed in this pulse-pounding, action-filled thriller. Men in Trees co-stars Anne Heche (Hung) and James Tupper (Samantha Who?) reignite their chemistry as two strangers brought together in their urgent mission to find a cure. Heche is Dr. Tess Martin, a top virologist driven by her tragic past. Her only hope is Jack Bowen (Tupper), a rule-breaking renegade who holds the key to the disease’s horrendous origins.

Format: DVD
Toxic Skies is one of those straight-to-video movies that is a step above most Redbox fare. For being a low budget film shot in Canada, this movie has great cinematography and editing. Kevin Blumenfeld also did a top-notch job with the movie's score.

Canadian director Andrew C. Erin doesn't have many movies under his belt, but he's definitely talented. I had seen his directing work before in Tornado Valley, only he's working with a better cast in this film. Anne Heche gives a solid performance as Dr. Tess Martin, a virologist struggling to discover the truth behind a deadly illness. Daniel Bacon also shines as Dr. Raj Patel, her friend and fellow physician.

So why give a film with a solid cast and great directing only three stars? The story is lacking. Toxic Skies cobbles a few elements from the movie "Outbreak", particularly why it becomes personally important for Tess to quickly discover a cure. On one hand, I give Andrew Erin credit for choosing such an original danger (chemtrails), but the movie isn't as suspenseful as it could have been. The film touches on an important motivation of Tess' physician work, yet never returns to it. There just seemed like great potential for backstories, or learning more about the two main doctors in general.

Toxic Skies is definitely worth watching once, before you decide whether or not to buy the DVD. With the cast and cinematography, I think it had the potential of a five-star film, if only the writing had been better. It's still an under the radar movie that's worth checking out.

Movies like these are devoid of the on-set scientific validity expert. But, THAT is okay. I do not care about rocket science.
The special effects(SFX) are never going to be as good as major budget movies like "Men In Black 1;2;3" --- where the cred-
ability/probability of two unicycles being able to actually fit UNDER a regular-looking old car is even remotely possible.
I say check your disbelief at the door. Pop yer popcorn. Turn the 5.1 UP! and just melt into yer chair and enjoy.

The movies
I
like very RARELY get any Academy Award Nominations -- much less, OSCARS!

One word: "ENJOY!"

I'm not going to judge the whys or attempt to analyze the events, only to note that the career of Anne Heche is certainly one that remains memorable for its incredible downward spiral. Despite her talent, which in my opinion is still considerable, this is one of the best examples I can think of when someone denies there's a conspiracy within Hollywood's surprisingly cloistered mental and political compound. And for a talented actress once teamed with Harrison Ford and Johnny Depp, punishment for "breaking the rules" is meted out with projects like this.

It's stunning irony that the very industry that proudly decries The Blacklist, used against creators like Dalton Trumbo and Lionel Stander, willingly continues to do so on the sly against current artists they deem "inappropriate". Will they feel shame 40 years down the road? I think so.

My hope is that there will be another Tarantino, a renegade filmmaker who will scoop from the so-called bottom and uplift solid talents, bringing them back into the light. Not so much rescuing careers, as acknowledging and revealing the new Hollywood shame and hypocrisy.

'Skies' is essentially a SciFi Saturday filler. The day they set aside for their Disaster & Creature Weekends, fairly innocuous direct-to-video cheapies that offer the gamut of disasters, aliens and monsters. Sometimes, like this flick, a government conspiracy.

Tells the story of medical researchers and doctors who are battling a new plague - but whose origins seem to be less biologically based and more chemical; less a natural mutation of a known disease and one more likely linked to an artificial source.

Everyday in the U.S. and other cooperating countries there are unmarked white and silver military style planes and drones streaming white smoke across the skies. They run very specific patterns often forming the letter X and making crosses. People are so caught up in their lives that they never look up to see what's really happening. Chemtrails are everywhere and undoubtedly doing damage to our planet and all living beings. Do your homework and research what this is all about and the chemicals they are spraying, keeping in mind that what goes up....also comes down.

This is a made for tv movie from 2008. It statrs the very good actress Anne Heche. She was once a AA list actress, but at this point she's taking what she can get. IT's the way for most actors really. Chem trails which are not real are the focus of this one. Unlike frakking in which real chemicals are pumped into the ground to get oil , chemtrails are a nutcase theory in which chemicals are put into airplines fules tanks to poison everyone. But if you put chemicals into the tanks , you would hurt the engines etc and ti's not a good conspiracy really. Howeve4r the movie is enganging as anne and a reporter try to unravel all of these people getting sick and dying from a toxic element. IN this one a bad corporation is doing it, not that a corporation wouldn't do it to make money. It's just they don't have to do that to make money. All they have to do is have the republicans pass bills that say medicare can't negotiate for costs on drugs. WHICH they alreay did. Anyways this is what you would expect in a tv movie but the acting is good. And Anne 's very good performance rises above the whole effort. the picture looks fine on dvd as this is a newer movie too.
