REVIEW: Skylines / SKYLIN3S / Skyline 3 - New Trailer

Review by Jon Donnis
I was a fan of Skyline, I was an even bigger fan of Beyond Skyline, so much so that my review even made it on to official posters, so now the third film in the franchise has been released, and I am excited.

This film pretty much carries on where the last film finished, so if you haven't seen the previous film, go watch it now, it is great.

Now, in Beyond Skyline, the 1st half was SciFi horror and the 2nd half of the film was Kung Fu SciFi action, in Skylin3s, the film is back to being mainly a SciFi film, but that does not mean the action scenes are any less, there is still some great Kung Fu scenes, mainly towards the end of the film.

So to the film itself, basically there are now friendly alien hybrids (red eyes) living peacefully on Earth, unfortunately there is a virus spreading and it is slowly turning the aliens back to their original selves, so that would be evil (blue eyes). Earth Defense have a way to save the aliens, but need to travel to the alien's home world to collect the very thing that can save them. For this journey they need Captain Rose Corley, played by the gorgeous and talented Lindsey Morgan, who is now an outsider, they convince her to help and off we go.

I wont spoil any more of the plot itself don't worry.

The Good
Action packed, great fight scenes, and fun scifi. What more do you want?

The Bad
In these kinds of films we all know there will be a twist, and this one you will see a mile away, but it doesn't really affect the film or your enjoyment of it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the film, everything that a good scifi should be. Is it as good as Beyond Skyline? Not sure, but I will score this film a solid 8/10
