Skyline plays of the Steven Hawking claim that when aliens come to visit earth that it will be much like when Columbus found the United States was for the Native Americans. When the aliens descend on Los Angeles they use bright lights to lure the citizens into their destructive plan. The cast of Skyline is not the strongest and the early indications are that this movie will be a bust. The film is being directed by Colin Strause who has extensive visual effects experience but is rather new to the role of director.
