If you remember my review of the movie SKYLINE (read my rant HERE) then you’ll understand when I say I was a little skeptical of watching another movie based on the original. I’m glad I did.

BEYOND SKYLINE begins shortly before the aliens attack. Everything about the attack is the same as in the first movie, but this time, people actually try to do something. This movie picks up were the other movie should have went, and we see what happens when a human brain in integrated into the alien technology.

This is the movie that SKYLINE should have been. Okay, maybe some of the plot was a little ridiculous, but at least it HAD a plot. There were a few things that made me shake my head, but it wasn’t as bad as the original.

If you’ve seen SKYLINE, I highly suggest you watch this movie as well. It isn’t the best, but it’s an enjoyable movie that actually makes sense and has a complete story arc to it.
