Summary: A movie that has no plot or characters and yeah a lot of people are going to say "Well the movie is a action pack ride to enjoy not to take seriously". Well this movie has horrible action and it's a really stupid movie.
Excerpt: A squad of US Marines are sent into war-torn Los Angeles to rescue a group of stranded civilians during an alien invasion. The comparisons to Independence Day are obvious, but Battle: Los Angeles takes itself far more seriously than Roland Emmerich's fun-filled cheese fest. In fact Johnathan Liebesman has clearly seen Black Hawk Down one too many times and I suspect that writer Christopher Bertolini gets slightly tumescent every time he sees an army recruitment poster.
Excerpt: S.Sgt. Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart), 2ndLt. William Martinez (Ramón Rodríguez), TSgt. Elena Santos (Michelle Rodriguez), Cpl. Harris, Lockett, Lt. Martinez and the rest check the reason for the meteor fall. The reactions of the soldiers upon seeing the aliens on TV seemed rehearsed score too dramatic and the lack of origin for the meteors that feel was relevant. It’s peculiar how watching a video makes them discover which ship controls the rest.
Summary: I had this one on my Must Watch list for a very long time. It seems as if Hollywood is flooding the movie market with alien movies and I was getting a little burned out by them, so I kept putting off watching Battle: Los Angeles until just a few weeks ago. The graphics are pretty darned good, as well as the plot and dialogue. There are plenty of suspenseful moments of aliens hunting down the military, but somehow the military (mostly) make it out on top.
Summary: Battle: Los Angeles is the best humans vs. aliens movie I've ever seen.The battle scenes were awesome & the story in between was just as good.I'm not into Sci Fi movies at all so I didn't expect too much out of it but it was just.....
Summary: A Marine staff sear gent (Aaron Eckhart) leads his platoon in a last standoff against extraterrestrials that have invaded earth. News reports come in showing numerous cities on every continent being destroyed. On the west coast of North America, Los Angeles is the target. Eckhart does a good job. But at first I was surprised to see him in this role. I was not convinced at first. But by the end, he has developed the character rather well.
Summary: "Battle: Los Angeles" depicts a group of military people trying to protect their city from an alien invasion. A dramatic presentation of a war between men and unidentified creatures. *** I really do appreciate this movie. Compared to other war movies I saw, this has this "thing" that holds the viewers. The drama and non-stop actions were really entertaining. This is what I expected to see on Skyline. However, the acting wasn't really that strong.
Summary: There's really nothing here, other than a bunch of soldiers running around Los Angeles shooting at aliens. Bad dialogue, lame special effects, and a story that's pretty much a rip off of Black Hawk Down (substituting aliens for Somalis) is really all you have here. Glad I got this on Netflix and didn't waste my money in the theatre. Sad to see Aaron Eckhart, who's really good, in crap like this.
Summary: A decent sci fi attempt. I think my rating is hurt on this film because of the crappy 5 inch personal airplane TV that I watched this on. Still, the story is so paper thin that even with amazing camera work and cinematography, it can't be saved. I love sci-fi by I did not like this movie.
Summary: An embarrassing assault on the senses. There's a lot of shooting and explosions that occurs without a lot of motivation. Paper-thin military characters are trotted out, along with seemingly every single war movie cliche. This is Black Hawk Down with aliens, but, while the action on screen is fast and furious, the emotional impact is zero.
