The third chapter of the sci-fi saga inaugurated with Skyline (2010) by the Strause brothers and continued with the sequel Beyond Skyline (2017) directed by director Liam O’Donnell.
Years have passed since the otherworldly blue lights first descended from the skies when the alien invasion of Earth began. The once murderous extraterrestrials known as “Pilots” have altered their biology so that they can now peacefully coexist with humans on a devastated future Earth. When a deadly new alien virus emerges, military commander General Radford (Alexander Siddig) warns that if action is not taken immediately the “Pilots” will revert to their unstoppable form of human hunters. To save Earth, super-powerful human-alien hybrid Captain Rose Corley (Lindsey Morgan) leads a team of elite soldiers on a deadly mission beyond the boundaries of space to the alien planet known as Cobalt 1. This time, to save our world, we must invade theirs.
Skylin3s returns to the initial struggle between aliens and humans by exploiting the main elements of the two previous feature films: spectacular clashes that combine martial arts with the sci-fi setting and emotional bonds that animate the actions and choices of the protagonists. The screenplay does not reserve any particular surprises, also limiting the number of significant deaths, leaving its cast with the task of supporting the development of the narrative which, however, pays too much for an unnecessary and ineffective fragmentation. While following the mission led by Rose, space was also given to what happens on Earth, bringing Dr. Mal back to the scene played by Rhona Mitra, but the two parallel stories appear unbalanced and almost repetitive in the action scenes. In fact, a spectacular surprise entrance on the scene is not enough to support the really slender plot that characterizes the battle on Earth, while what happens in space follows tracks unfortunately already seen several times in genre cinema. Skylines, especially if compared with the previous chapter, for issues related to the choices made in the editing and drafting of the screenplay, seems devoid of that charge of adrenaline and rhythm that gave no respite to the spectators, constantly placed in front of narrative and high-paced fighting.

The good visual level achieved despite the limited budget at one’s disposal, however, remains one of the pillars of the sci-fi franchise, and the idea of a family, regardless of the nature of its components, still remains valued and carefully constructed.
