Battle Los Angeles
« on: March 14, 2011, 06:29:10 pm »
Any one seen this....

one of the best films i've seen in ages, didn't think it was going to be up to much. There are some cheesy bits. Like WE'LL GET THROUGH THIS GOD DAMN IT, AN YOU'LL MARRY SO AND SO ETC, but still very good.

like war of the worlds, but better

Objectively, it's a bunch of formulaic 'paint by numbers' dross that brings little new to the genre..... And I absolutely loved it  :aeg:

im a bit tentative to go and see it as they slated it on the radio, they said there are no charecters that you can "get into" and follow, and there is no real story line.

sounds a bit like one of those drama documentaries with loads of special fx to me, if you know what i mean.

An accurate critique. Now go watch it, it's f**cking awesome. What're people expecting? War and peace? :facepalm:

What I like is the critical reviews stating that the film doesn't have any depth. Perhaps they failed to recognise the word "battle" in the title. It's not like the aliens had a long hard discussion with the president before attacking LA.

I saw this on my birthday. Don't watch it if you are expecting to see an epic story lined with characters that you will love. If you want to see a fine action movie mind, which is just fun to watch then give this a look.

I loved it. I was a great movie. It had no real story line but You are watching the movie via a Marines perspective. Though I would like to know more about some of the characters before hand.  This movie was all about the marines and not how the world was getting attacked. Though I was disappointed on what the ALIENS really looked like.? Still till today I don't really know what they look like? but overall its a great movies...and Defo I will buy it on blu-ray!
