Skyline is a science fiction thriller film from 2010 that follows the events of an alien invasion occurring in Los Angeles. The movie is directed by Colin and Greg Strause and stars Eric Balfour, Donald Faison, and Scottie Thompson. The film follows Jarrod (played by Eric Balfour) and his girlfriend Elaine (played by Scottie Thompson) as they travel to Los Angeles to visit Jarrod's friend Terry (played by Donald Faison). The couple arrives at Terry's luxurious penthouse apartment, where they quickly discover that something strange is happening outside. The trio observes an intense blue light emanating from outside their windows, which quickly descends to the streets below.

Jarrod, Terry, and their friends gather on the rooftop to observe the strange lights that have been illuminating the city. Suddenly, alien ships emerge from the lights, and a terrorizing sound wave causes everyone in L.A. to become unconscious. Upon waking, they discover that there seems to be a force trying to pull humans up to the alien ships hovering over the city.

The film then becomes a survival story as the group navigates through L.A. to evade the alien invaders. Jarrod, Elaine, and Terry work together to try and find a way to escape. Along the way, they encounter other groups of survivors and learn more about the aliens as they battle to stay alive.

Skyline has received mixed reviews from its audience and critics. The visuals and special effects were praised, but issues with the plot and character development were criticized. Despite these shortcomings, the film did well at the box office and inspired a sequel, Beyond Skyline.

Overall, Skyline is a heart-pumping action-packed film that follows a small group of characters as they fight for survival in the midst of an alien invasion. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and is perfect for sci-fi fans who enjoy a good thriller.

Skyline is a 2010 science fiction movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.5 and a MetaScore of 26.
