I remember seeing the previews to this film and thinking this was a film that needs to be seen on the big screen. Unfortunately I never got the chance, but thanks to Netflix watch instantly catalog I was at least able to see it.

Skyline is written by Joshua Cordes and Liam O'donnell, directed by Colin and Greg Strause (Brothers), produced by Kristian James Anderson and Liam O'donnell. (2010). The storyline goes 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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, RIo de Janeiro, Brazil

I thought this movie stayed true to the premise it gave from the opening. Unlike some films which rely too much on building a scientific storyline, but only break their own rules to enhance the action. Skyline kept it simple, cool, and sexy. Although the film itself came out in a time when end f the world movies were not the “IN” thing. So for “SKYLINE” I give it 3 ½ stars... pretty cool shit.


And if you haven't yet get downtown Chico and visit KONJO (112 west 2nd street)
