It's incessantly loud, underlit and badly directed -- actually not so much directed as ineptly assembled, with no action sequence going unbotched.

Solid, old-fashioned rollocking adventure? You can keep telling yourself that, but you'd be better off saving the cash, going home and watching Star Wars on video again instead.

Battlefield Earth is a Plan Nine From Outer Space for the new millennium.
May 28, 2013
Not so much watched as lived through, Battlefield Earth is bad enough to make audiences ashamed to be part of the same species as the people who made it.

The summer movie season has barely begun and already it has its first 10-ton turkey.
May 28, 2013
With this kind of epic ineptitude -- hell, the flick is set in the year 3000 -- you go for "worst of the millennium."
May 28, 2013
One of the darkest, ugliest, most uninvolving and incomprehensible major-studio fantasies I've ever seen.

Here is a picture that will be hailed without controversy as the worst of its kind ever made. It could be renamed Ed Wood's Planet of the Apes if that title didn't promise more cheesy fun than the movie actually delivers.

The worst movie in living memory.

There's so much to mock in Battlefield Earth, it's hard to know where to start.

The director is Roger Christian, who, if early audience response is anything to go by, would do well to flee the country under an assumed name.

The film starts well with interesting comic book-style camera angles, but it never generates enough tension due to preposterous plot holes and liberal borrowings from other movies.

Battlefield Earth is like taking a bus trip with someone who has needed a bath for a long time. It's not merely bad; it's unpleasant in a hostile way.
September 30, 2010
Worst example of vanity filmmaking in years.
April 29, 2009
There's really only one way to summarize my sheer hatred for what is possibly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. And it's through a list.

"Battlefield Earth," based on a crappy 1982 sci-fi novel by cult religion dips#*t L. Ron Hubbard, is so inept and pathetic that it should forever end any questions about the validity of Hubbard's manufactured religion of Scientology.

Pretty much the Showgirls of sci-fi shoot-'em-ups.
March 10, 2009
There's really nothing here you haven't seen before, except maybe the sight of John Travolta walking around with tubes in his nose.
August 7, 2008
If you are looking for something to hate and despise, get thee to this movie.
July 23, 2007
A folly so supreme that it occasionally inspires awe, in the sense that so many people spent so much time and money on it without ever realizing how awful it is.
