- Strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.
- Jarrod and his pregnant girlfriend Elaine travel to Los Angeles to meet his old friend and successful entrepreneur Terry, and his wife Candice. Terry gives a party in his apartment for Jarrod and offers a job position to him in LA. Terry's assistant and lover Denise (Crystal Reed) and his friend Ray (Neil Hopkins) sleep on the couch in the living room, but in the dawn of the next morning, the group is awakened by mysterious beams of blue light. Ray stares at the light and is taken by the mysterious force. The group of friends try to escape from the alien invaders.
- Apparently the producers of this movie didn't pay off the right people, hence the negative reviews. Anyone who gives this movie less than three/four stars obviously didn't see the movie. I've been wanting to rent Skyline for months now but every time I read all the negative reviews I chose to watch something else. I'm glad I finally gave in to my better judgment because it was one of those SciFi flicks that doesn't disappoint. It had everything: good acting, great script, suspense, excellent special effects, and lots of action; and was immensely entertaining. If you've seen my other reviews, you know I'm a very tough critic, so if I give a movie 10 stars then it's worth watching.<br/><br/>Perhaps so many of the negative reviews were because the movie (for the most part) stayed scientifically accurate and real to life sometimes the hero doesn't come riding in on a white horse. Of course, like most Scifi the only movie that's 100% based on true science is 2001 a Space Odyssey. However, this movie came closer than most, which made the terror all the more real. (SPOILERS COMING) I liked that the military response was with a strategic nuke and drones, which makes sense since the blue light seems to render people harmless. Even the mother ship rebuilding itself is technically possible with advanced technology (the sum of all the parts can be reconstructed to make the whole). Where the movie strayed was the fact that if an SUV can temporarily disable one of these life forms than a strategic nuclear weapon should have completely vaporized the mother ship to the molecular level - making it virtually impossible to rebuild; and any biologically based life inside would also have been vaporized. The shock wave would have also shattered the windows and done far more damage than was shown. Also, the TV and Internet went completely out but they were still able to pull power from the grid and cell sites were still operational. If the impact of the attack took out TV and Internet then a total blackout would have ensured. Lastly, the military wouldn't use drones for a first strike and follow that up with live troops, especially if the drone strike was unsuccessful. Finally, the preview makes note of comments from Stephen Hawking, first saying he's one of the most successful physicists, which isn't true. While Hawking is one of the most famous physicists he is basically considered a failure in the world of Physics as most of his postulates have been minor or dis-proved. They also make note of a quote where he said an alien visitation may be to us like it was for native Americans when Columbus came to the new world. Keep in mind that the native Americans befriended Columbus, which was their downfall. Even without his advanced technology, they could have easily overcome his small little landing party. Also, total occupation has never been achieved through technology alone especially when the entire populous rises against the occupants (which was the case in this movie). I'm only adding these criticisms because I liked the movie so much that it got me thinking. The ending was a little disappointing as I think it would have been better if they just ended it five minutes earlier when the two main characters were being levitated into the mother ship. Overall, this is one of the best SciFi movies I've every watched.
- I gave this movie a 10 out of 10 because I know it has great effects and art design, and is a step in indie sci-fi film making.<br/><br/>Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my glasses to the movie theater, so I had to try and appreciate everything but the visuals, which was extremely difficult. The conflict I have with the film is it doesn't depict anyone who I'd want to be. At first you think you can relate to the characters until you realize they're all based off of the pretense that they're all horrible people. So many people wont relate and likely look away from this movie and regard it as a joke.<br/><br/>The script very consciously tries to make a moral point throughout the film but seems to disregard all of the characters in the story except for the one doorman that blows himself up to save the country from aliens. The moral of the story is: "Do you want to be a hero? Be an inconspicuous doorman to a hotel, not one of those sex-crazed media industry fiends from LA".<br/><br/>If I could get over my doubts, I'd say it's a good film. The ending is also mind***ing.
- The Strauses don't care about how to keep an audience. Their movie has no sense of suspense or dread - Skyline is an apocalypse movie that plods like one of Romero's zombies.
- While partying with his best friend Terry (<a href="/name/nm0265668/">Donald Faison</a>) in Terry's penthouse apartment in Los Angeles, Jarrod (<a href="/name/nm0050156/">Eric Balfour</a>), his pregnant girlfriend Elaine "Lainey" (<a href="/name/nm2174090/">Scottie Thompson</a>), Terry's wife Candice (<a href="/name/nm0199590/">Brittany Daniel</a>), Terry's assistant Denise (<a href="/name/nm3706952/">Crystal Reed</a>), and Terry's friend Ray (<a href="/name/nm0394248/">Neil Hopkins</a>) witness an attack on the city by alien spaceships emitting mysterious beams of blue light. Ray stares at the light and is drawn into it like a moth to a flame. It starts to draw Jarrod into it, but Terry pulls him away. As the aliens canvas the city looking for more humans, Jarrod and his friends try to find a way to escape from the building they are in. Skyline is based on a screenplay by Joshua Cordes and Liam O'Donnell. It's accompanied by a sequel, <a href="/title/tt1724970/">Beyond Skyline (2017)</a> (2017). The blue light transmits a powerful alien technology that acts like an airborne virus, similar to the way a "moth zapper" attracts moths and other insects. Once the light has come into contact with a human's eyesight, it overrides the brain and controls it, beckoning for the human to approach the light and be eventually taken to the ship. It obviously also has some major physiological effects on those that engage it with their eyes for any significant amount of time, evidenced by the crawling and growing dark-vein like effects it has on its victims. Humans are being abducted by the aliens so their brains can be removed. Some insight into how the aliens use human brains might be seen in the parking garage scene: the alien that swallows Colin (he's released moments later) has his brain and part of his spinal column removed. The alien ejects a brain-like object and replaces it with Colin's. It might be the way they survive on Earth, replenish their energy, or gain knowledge about humans to make their defeat easier. Everyone dies by various means. The two survivors, Jarrod and Elaine, are sucked into the blue light and into the alien mothership. Elaine ends up in a pile of human bodies slowly having their brains ripped out. She is apparently spared because she is pregnant. She calls to Jarrod, but he is killed by the aliens and his brain removed then sent up a tube. It's apparent afterwards that the brains are being used to create more aliens. The alien that is given Jarrod's brain appears and is seen to protect Elaine who realises who it is. It is seen in a short montage that cities all over the world, including New York, London, Hong Kong, have all been attacked by various alien ships bombarding blue rays and abducting people. The military fights back, but they are defeated. The aliens (who include various assortments such as 20-foot-tall hulking tankers, as well as hydra-like squid creatures, and flying drones) appear to be un-killable, inescapable and unstoppable. Even after one large alien ship is blown apart by a nuclear warhead fired by a stealth drone aircraft, it slowly repairs itself. (All of the aliens, including the spaceships, appear to be a type of bio-mechanical machines capable of self-regeneration). Humanity is completely wiped out and the aliens win in the end, completely taking over the Earth. Jarrod has been subject to the alien technology and virus more than once. It is possible that it has begun to mutate into his DNA, effectively giving his brain an immunity to being reprogrammed. Unlike the rest of the humans taken aboard, Jarrod distinctly remembers who he is and what is going on. a5c7b9f00b
