Disastrously written, lamentably acted and visually horrible. Battlefield Earth is a disaster in all aspects: Script, direction, acting, cinematography, visual effects, production design, makeup, costumes, soundtrack, etc. Result: a filthy filth.

I Can't Believe This Film Got Critically Panned By Film Critics.

Rating: 1.4/10 Half-baked schlock that's hard on the eyes, a sledgehammer to the brain but has a score that's pleasant to the ears.

No doubt the worst film ever made, followed closely by the Garbage Pails Kids Movie

John Travolta provides those unfortunate enough to struggle through 2 hours of awful acting, weird design, an uncountable amount of dutch angles, and an fascinatingly bad story.

A pretty decent movie to see. I remember seeing it as a child, and I still like it.
The big scale idea of the movie itself is inspiring, a post-apocalyptic world ruled by aliens, and people reduced to primitive lifestyle, having to rediscover modern technology and history. Although at times it is rather dark and monotonous, it is in its entirety a rather brilliant movie.

I rented this film to see how bad it was, because I sometimes (or a lot of times enjoy expressing my opinion on films that are good or bad. Now, most of the films that I have watched over the years were very nicely done. But, this film is atrocious. I have never seen anything this horrible in my entire life. I read about this film in a TV Guide listing films that would be playing on TV when I was a kid. I gotta tell you, this film is not entertaining, it's a waste of time (laughs). Ironically, I don't regret renting this film. I rented it out of curiosity to see how "terra-ble" it was and people were right. Here are the complaints I have about this film, poor storyline, bad acting (especially from John Travolta), weak dialogue, everything from a thousand years prior still works, overuse of Dutch angles (45 degree angles on film cameras), and it's just a bad film. If you'd like to see a good science fiction film, check out "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind", "ET", "The Thing", or the "Back To The Future" franchise, the "Terminator" films (earlier, although I didn't see them, I hear they're good), "Scooby Doo And The Alien Invaders", "Marvin The Martian cartoons", or the episode of "Scooby Doo" (original series) where Scooby and the gang encounter an alien, all of which are better than this hunk of garbage. What was John Travolta thinking while this film was being made? Ugh!

A poorly made film that was a waste of time. I really like both John Travolta and Forest Whitaker but this film was really bad.

Worst movie ever! Which is really sad considering the book is one of my all time favourites and deserves to be better represented on film. Now that it's been 17 years since this movie was made they really need to burry it and make a new one to do the book justice!

This was a joke of a film not worth my time.

How the fuck did this dumbass "superior" alien race who needs gold manage to invade the human race, and not know about Fort Fucking Knox?!

So what if it is a bad sic-fi flick? I love it.

Seriously, this is possibly the worst film I've seen tied to "Manos: The Hands Of Fate". The acting is over-the-top. The dialogue is weak, the costumes are laughable, the directing was amateur at best, the villains were incredibly STUPID, and the special effects ranged from OK to OH-NO. I know this brings credibility to the term "So bad, its good", but's BAD.
