Appalling.

Logic is in short supply. Burned-out cities have electricity, for example. My favorite: A hangar full of jets, buried under 1,000 years of dust, not only fire up instantly but still have full tanks of gas.

Not awful, but pretty bad. A third-string Planet of the Apes meets Star Trek, Battlefield Earth is a largely uninspiring sci-fi adventure with a Swiss-cheese plot.

With this journey into the heart of rubbish, this full-throttle adventure into the hyper-space of drivel, Travolta not only incinerates what is left of his own reputation, but takes someone else down with him.

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.

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.
May 28, 2013
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.

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.

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.

Pretty much the Showgirls of sci-fi shoot-'em-ups.
January 6, 2007
This 117-minute adaptation of an 800-page SF adventure for teenagers seems like a miscalculation on multiple levels.
January 26, 2006
Travolta, it seems, had wanted to star in a film of Battlefield Earth since first reading the novel in 1982. Only the all-seeing L Ron knows why.
March 19, 2002
Ah, it ain't really that terrible.
April 17, 2001
A botched adventure that looks suspiciously like any number of other sci-fi tales you will have seen, and pales instantly by the comparison.
January 1, 2000
Younger, less discriminating viewers (5-year-old boys) will eat it up.
January 1, 2000
And after about 20 minutes of this amateurish picture, extinction doesn't seem like such a bad idea.

If you're the kind of sci-fi fanatic who has to see every new futuristic action movie no matter how crummy it is then of course you'll check out Battlefield Earth regardless of how many cheap jokes critics crack at its expense.
