'Battle: LA' Two Jews On Film Think This SciFi Epic Loses The War (Video)

'Battle: LA' is the story of what happens when Earth is attacked by aliens.  One by one the cities of the world fall until there's only one  city left...Los Angeles...Who would think that the City Of Angeles would be the last hope for mankind.  

Now it's up to a burnt out, guilt ridden, Marine Staff Sergeant, Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) and his platoon which includes Michelle Rodriguez, Ramon Rodriguez, Michael Pena, Ne-Yo to take on the aliens and hopefully wipe them out. Along the way, the Marines also have to rescue several civilians hiding out in a Police Station in Venice of all places.

'Battle: LA' is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginnings) and written by Chris Bertolini (The General's Daughter).  

This movie plays more like a Marine recruitment film than a Sci Fi Epic.  The aliens are uninteresting, mindless killing machines.  Apparently they want to take over Earth for our water.  We don't get that information from the aliens because they never speak. They just shoot these gigantic guns and destroy everything in their path.  

 The film starts out well...There is an element of suspense at the beginning but then the movie quickly
loses ground as the battle scenes start to resemble one an other.

 The dialogue is very expository and the plot is illogical.  How come Aaron Eckhart is the only person on Earth that figures out that the way to stop these aliens, is to take our their central command ship?

 This time 'The Two Jews On Film' agree.  'Battle LA' is not a bagel worthy film.  It opens in theaters, Friday March 11, 1011.

I'm not pro-war or pro-violence at all, but I can think of a few cities that could do with a good hostile extra-terrestrial attack... and Los Angeles isn't the sort of place that I would be rooting for. LOL! Personally, I prefer films in which the aliens are of higher intelligence and would avoid L.A. altogether and maybe attack Rhode Island or something. ; )

I couldn't agree more. Nothing worse than boring aliens meeting up in LaLa land. LOL
