In August it was reported that Sony Pictures Entertainment was contemplating legal action against Greg and Colin Strause, the directors of Skyline and the owners of Hydraulx Filmz. Sony paid Hydraulx to generate visual effects work for Battle: Los Angeles. But Hydraulx never informed Sony the siblings were directing a rival alien invasion feature, similarly driven by special effects, scheduled for release four months prior to Sony's feature. A rep for the Strauses issued a statement: "Any claims of impropriety are completely baseless.
This is a blatant attempt by Sony to force these independent filmmakers to move a release date that has long been set by Universal and Relativity and is outside the filmmakers' control". On March 17,Sony released a statement dismissing its arbitration against Hydraulx and the Strause Brothers citing that after the discovery phase they were satisfied that none of the Battle: Los Angeles visual effects were used in Skyline.

The site's critical consensus reads, "A middling sci-fi entry, Skyline offers proof that solid special effects alone cannot overcome a flat storyline filled with uninspired dialogue.
Writing in VarietyJoe Leydon panned the film: "Imagine a Kmart mash-up of Transformers and Independence Day and you're appropriately primed for Skylinean underwhelming and derivative sci-fi thriller that's only marginally more impressive than a run-of-the-mill SyFy Channel telepic.
And that's about all you can say for Skyline. However, there were positive reviews, including Matthew Sorrento's at Film Threatwho commented, " Skylineif not always successful, refashions the modern alien invasion motif as the hopeless siege that it should be. In May at the annual Cannes Film Festivalit was revealed that a sequel titled Beyond Skyline was planned to go into production, but without The Brothers Strause as the writers and directors. Instead, Skyline producer and co-writer Liam O'Donnell has been brought on board, marking his directorial debut.
