"Fronted by grizzled action man du jour Frank Grillo, BEYOND SKYLINE takes place at the same time as the original, but with new characters, and a lot of new locations, plus some international punching power in the shape of Iko Uwais and Yayan Ruhian, stars of heavy-hitting Indonesian crowd-pleaser THE RAID." (Austin Chronicle)
"BEYOND SKYLINE is the best kind of trashy space-movie madness. The sequel to 2010’s Skyline keeps all the high-tech chrome and low-tech slime of the original movie." (The Verge)
"BEYOND SKYLINE is a $20 million budget film disguised as a $200 million summer blockbuster. This is a film which absolute demands to be seen on the largest screen possible." (Dread Central)
