Sci-fi movies on Netflix: Beyond Skyline (2017)
Beyond Skyline is a direct sequel to the 2010 film Skyline, which centered upon a group of people trying to survive an alien invasion that had people being sucked up the thousands into bel beams of light only to be torn up and repurposed as biomechanical alien soldiers. The end of that film saw one of the survivors, Jarrod, transformed into one of these entities but was still able to keep his human personality and, in the final moments, was seen fighting off other recycled alien soldiers in order to protect his pregnant girlfriend, Elaine.
The sequel takes place just as the invasion in Skyline began, with the focus revolving around Detective Mark Corley trying to rescue his son from the ship. He encounters Jarrod and Elaine on the ship, which leads them on a mission to stop the alien forces that threaten their planet once and for all. But Jarrod’s predicament may be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Alien anomalies in this universe, and the secret to victory may lie in Jarrod and Elaine’s baby. After the ship crashes in Southeast Asia, Mark must forge an alliance with a band of survivors in order to take back the planet once and for all. Frank Grillo and the rest of the cast give stellar performances, and the action-packed story is everything a sci-fi fanatic wants in a movie, making it every Netflix subscriber’s mission to not miss out on this sequel with no equal.
