Beyond Skyline: It's big, it's dumb, it's marginally better
13 November 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Sufficed to say I wasn't impressed with Skyline (2010) it was a big dumb Hollywood sci-fi epic that wowed with cgi but was held together by a generic wafer thin plot.

This time starring the superior Frank Grillo we see a different group of people during the invasion and their desperate fight for survival.

Once again it's big, loud, cgi filled and fifty shades of dumb but it accomplishes exactly what it set out to do and manages to do it better than the first movie.

It's mostly loyal to the first film and even succeeds in expanding the mythology further, but honestly not all too well. The majority of the film is predictible, it's full of the usual tropes and cliches and like most Hollywood films plays it very very safe.

It has its moments but you need to remember this is a take your brain out and watch movie (Even more so than ever). If you decide to foolishly think about what you're watching you're in for a bad ride and almost certainly a migraine.

If you enjoyed the first movie you might have fun here, if you want something you need to put any level of thought into stay away.

The Good:

Looks the part

Frank Grillo

The Bad:

Lacks consistency with the first film in places

Recasting previous character

Some of the coincidences defy belief

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

If your son assaults someone it's fine if they knocked them out with one punch

Aliens aren't bulletproof however any human inside devoured won't be hit

Holding enemies off while your friends escape is a pointless sacrifice if you buy them 2 seconds

More movies need brain ripping action

No noise cuts through me more than that of a brat *Ahem* I mean darling child
