Battle: Los Angeles Reviews

Film Comment Magazine

Case in point: Battle: Los Angeles, an alien-invasion disaster piece so loud, ham-fisted and joyless-so aggressively lousy-that its only real usefulness is to make one better appreciate the deft touch of a Roland Emmerich.

Misses every mark it's aiming at, and then misses countless more.

Battle: Los Angeles misses every mark it aims for. Aside from the well done special effects nothing in this movie is worth recommending.

It's not new, it's not novel and it's not art. But as a popcorn movie a couple of months out of summer season, it'll have to do.

Just the worst, most cliché-ridden bunch of faceless cannon fodder you've ever had the misfortune to watch die.

Jonathan Liebesman's "Battle: Los Angeles" is one of those rare films that fails on just about every level a film can fail on.

Not as bad as the other recent invasion movie Skyline, but still nothing to be excited about.

For an alien invasion film, this one is a solid effort, though there's a bit too much violence and not enough introspection.

...Battle Los Angeles fizzles out long before it reaches its tedious, anticlimactic finish.

... this humorless film as unimaginative -- and as exhausting -- as you can get.

a kind of cross between what I imagine the first person shooter video game experience to be and an episode of the HBO series Generation Kill

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Wears its valor and vigor on its sleeve daring to be old-fashioned in its depiction of American heroism. The spirit of "Semper Fi" hasn't been this much fun in a long time.

For all the blazing guns and s*** blowing up, it's only sporadically thrilling.

From beginning to end, this thing just keeps jackhammering at your nerves. Sure, there are a few moments of comic relief, both intended and not.

Action packed from beginning to end, "Battle: Los Angeles" is the bigger, badder brother to "Independence Day."
