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. Aaron Eckhart's character gets a little melodramatic at times, producing a few eye-rolling moments. Overall, the acting and storyline is well done in the film. I

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......awesome.I can't really think of any other word to describe this movie.I recommend anybody who hasn't seen this movie to go & check it out for themselves

"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. I never liked Aaron Eckhart (don't hate him neither), Ramon Rodriguez did nothing. Actors have to improve (except Michelle Rodriguez, I always love her character).

"Battle: Los Angeles" by Yojimbo

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. It's basically just a generic war film with added aliens but the script makes the usual mistake of concentrating on action rather than story, resulting in a bunch of characters that are introduced only through ten minutes of soap opera at the beginning and never interact again apart from bellowing military jargon at each ot...

Battle: Los Angeles review

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. Had dramatic scenes with whispers, a lot of shooting, explosions, cursing, cheesy dialogue, repetitive score and moving around with a shaky camera which makes you cringe and think how boring this film was. It looks like a big budget film, if only they got better writers instead of numerous artists who just kept on dying and effects people. B...

Bullets and Shrapnel

I was really excited for great things from this movie. I wasn't expecting a re-make type movie of Independence Day, but a more realistic movie with lots of sci-fi and great story with on-the-edge of your seat action. Battle Los Angeles succeeded on only a few of those fronts. The movie was quite realistic and believable. The kind of reaction and response the U.S. had is pretty much exactly how it would really go down. I was happy that no secret weapons that don't exist popped out of the blue from a hidden U.S. research facility. It was just troops and military defense against the enemy. What did catch me a little surprised was that the movie was much more action, and not much sci-fi. The sci-fi was basically your alien ship graphics, a few aliens and their weapons, but not any tru...
