Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmm, OK., 2 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Battle: Los Angeles [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
I guess it pretty much does what it says on the tin, even if it has designs to be more psychologically thoughtful by viewing it through the eyes of the grunts charged with saving the world from alien domination. It's all very loud and the action is frantically filmed, but this only excites for a while and it grows tiresome entering the second half of a film that runs to a (too long) near two hours. The allegorical nudges in the ribs to modern day problems are heavily handled by director Jonathan Liebesman (Wrath of the Titans), and the likes of Aaron Eckhart and Bridget Moynahan are clearly slumming it or acting out a fantasy to appear in a popcorn alien invasion pic. Good bangs and crashes movie, if that's your thing, but it has ideas above its station and can't attain the goals it set itself. 5/10
