A steaming pile,
This review is from: Battlefield Earth [DVD] (DVD)
I know that Travolta doesn't seem able (or willing) to say no to dodgy films and, having read some, I know that the works of L. Ron Hubbard are approximately 90% filler and 9% rubbish, however, I still watched this film with an air of hopeful anticipation.
Unfortunately, from the first few minutes I knew we weren't in for anything approaching mediocre.
The script was stilted nonsense, the plot hackneyed, the aliens (though evil enough) were caricatures and the effects cheap.
Overall, I'd say that, if you have a couple of hours with absolutely nothing to do, you could do worse that watch this. If you have a toilet to clean then you'd be better off doing that.
