* AssholeVictim: Basically the entire named cast with the exception of Jarrod and Elaine. Terry is an obnoxious womanizer, his girlfriend is a [[ItsAllAboutMe self-absorbed]] GoldDigger, the girl he cheats with is a SmugSnake, and Oliver, despite being the OnlySaneMan, remains antagonistic and condescending for most of his time in the film.

* Foreshadowing: A possibly unintentional - and definitely musical - example here. One of the songs featured in the film is 30 Seconds to Mars's 'Kings and Queens', which is about [[spoiler:the end of the world, or at the very least, humanity]].

* ViewersAreMorons: The only possible explanation for [[spoiler:Jarrod]]'s brain and eyes glowing red instead of blue. Better make sure it's ColorCodedForYourConvenience, or people won't get it, right?

* AMillionIsAStatistic: The abduction of the rest of the population of Los Angeles is merely a backdrop for the drama of a very small group of people and their tragedies.
** Human military aircraft, mostly manned, getting knocked out of the skies in the background becomes almost routine by the time [[spoiler: Jarrod and Elaine]] are taken into the ship.

* FinalGirl : featuring Elaine as the very last survivor at the very end, and then quickly adverted by an inverted CliffHanger (Jarrod's resurrection as a machine).

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Arguably the best surprise in the film is [[spoiler: when the car is crushed by the alien's foot as it comes out of the parking garage]], so [[SarcasmMode of course]] this was displayed prominently in the trailer.

A sequel, Beyond Skyline[[spoiler:[[strike:[[TheySavedHitlersBrain :They Saved Jarrod's Brain]]]]]] is set for a December 2015 release.



** It's cool though. [[spoiler:Jarrod]]'s an alien war machine now and is going to kick some major alien ass in the sequel that will likely never be made.

* RealityEnsues: A really brutally honest example. So a super advanced alien race invades Earth? How will humanity fight off these powerful foes? [[spoiler: They don't. You didn't ''really'' think humanity stood a chance agaisnt alien beings advanced and powerful enough to travel across millions miles to fuel their unstoppable war machines did you?]]

Added DiffLines:

* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: [[spoiler:Jarrod]]'s CharacterTic of [[spoiler:stroking Elaine's face downwards from her forehead to her chin]] helps her to recognise him after [[spoiler:Jarrod's brain transplantation]].
