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.

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" 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 …

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 …

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 …
