[Fantasia] ‘Skywatch’ Review

Skywatch is playing as part of the International Science-Fiction Short Film Showcase at this year’s Fantasia Festival. 

Ray Bradbury’s short stories and shows like Twilight Zone and Black Mirror have shown audiences that too much technology might not necessarily be a good thing. At least that is the lesson Mike and Shaun learn when they are making mischief with a borrowed drone. Filled with expert level effects, Colin Levy writes and directs Skywatch, a film that features some remarkable technology, but shows how everything comes with a price. 

The film begins with Mike and Shaun illegally using a drone to deliver random things to neighbors. This is the start of the film which sets the pace for all sorts of technology inspired mayhem. Filled with lasers and explosions, Levy’s use of special effects produce a very cinematic sci-fi experience. 

The film features a great cast as well. Uriah Colton and Zach Callison have great chemistry and give some great performances that will keep the audience invested. Jude Law also makes an interesting appearance that changes the nature of the story.
