Several years have now passed since other-worldly blue lights first descended from the skies as the alien invasion of Earth began. The once-killer extraterrestrials known as ‘Pilots’ have had their biology altered so they can now peacefully coexist with humans on a ravaged future-Earth. When a lethal new alien virus emerges, military commander General Radford warns that without action, the Pilots will revert to their unstoppable, human-hunting form. To save the Earth, super-powered human-alien hybrid Captain Rose Corley must lead a team of elite soldiers on a deadly mission…

“To save our world, she must invade theirs.”

Beyond Skyline (2017, USA) Signature DVD Review

Beyond Skyline (2017)

Released in 2017, seven years after it’s predecessor Skyline, the aptly titled Beyond Skyline sees Liam O’Donnell take over the directorial reigns from Greg and Colin Strause, in his directional debut.

Beyond Skyline was unwarranted. It is a sequel no one expected, and perhaps, a sequel no one wanted. Even as someone that appreciated the first movie, Beyond Skyline went beyond (pun intended) my expectations entirely. It works because it is so wild…so out there… Beyond Skyline is an experience.

“Survive? We did a hell of a lot more than survive… We evolved.”
