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

Eat some leatherneck lead, E.T. -- and semper fi, space scum!

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.

... lock-and-load sci-fi - "Full Metal Jacket" meets "War of the Worlds.

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."

It's a decent night out, provided you know what you're in for.

An out-of-this-world blast.

Don't expect too much more than a gritty tour of duty against ET's angry cousins and you'll be totally satisfied.

For all its (many) flaws and derivative story elements, Battle: Los Angeles still has all the mindless fun and excitement of a really good high school food fight.

One doesn't approach a movie like this expecting Shakespearean drama. Unlike some films with loftier ambitions, Battle Los Angeles pretty much delivers what it promises:

A realistic war movie gives way to melodrama and a really poor second half.

rather than actively fighting the clichés inherent in this genre, they have consciously, even joyously, embraced them

... probably better than it has any right to be.

It's a top-to-bottom completely typical war film, just one involving aliens. If you can get behind that conceit, it's not bad at it what it does. If you can't, there's nothing else here for you.

Battle: Los Angeles is the right kind of "Hoorah!" that the alien invasion sub-genre needed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

It is a well executed one-violent-trick pony, designed for the 12 year old boy the movie studios hope is still playing with toy soldier figurines inside us all.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Eckhart is a refreshing alternative to Messrs Stallone and Schwarzenegger in this movie.

A sturdy alien-invasion flick that focuses almost exclusively on the military response.
