Battle Los Angeles


A Marine Staff Sergeant who has just had his retirement approved goes back into the line of duty in order to assist a 2nd Lieutenant and his platoon as they fight to reclaim the city of Los Angeles from alien invaders.

Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez and Bridget Moynahan star in this sci-fi action movie, it starts with Eckhart's character flirting with retirement from the Marines but the aliens have different plans. When the proverbial SHTF the Marines land at a forward operating base in Santa Monica they are tasked to find the civilians holding up in a police station. On the way they of course run into the alien invasion force and fight their way to the police station. During this they pick up Michelle Rodriguez's character, an Air Force TSgt. from a recon unit. They arrive at the police station and call in for medevacs and transport for the civilians, but of course it wouldn't be a movie if everything always went right. With the help of Rodriguez's character they figure out they need to take out a command ship that controls the alien's unmanned aircraft.

In conclusion, I would rate it 8/10. It is alot better than the load of crap that was Skyline. As a sidenote I'll review Skyline for you. It is a alien-zombie movie, that has a cheesy love story. Donald Faison should have lived. Anyway, Battle: LA is a sci-fi/military movie that I enjoyed. This movie is full of action scenes and I would say it doesn't disappoint.


  1. definitely going to be remembered for years to come as one of the best alien films.

  2. I think I'll watch this today. I've been wanting to seeing for a while but haven't found the time.

  3. Was really excited to watch this, but it wasn't as good as i expected. You're right though, sure beats the hell out of Skyline.

  4. I was gonna see it but then I heard it sucked.

    And, Skyline, oh my...
    I had to watch it, 'cause my friends insisted.
    That's one bad movie.

    Anyhow, following and supporting! :)

  5. I had high expectations for this movie but was highly let down. I felt as if the entire movie was just one big marines advertisement.

  6. I enjoyed it, very similar to skyline dont you think?

  7. I actually liked this movie, because I expected it to be worse.

  8. I heard this wasn't a good movie. I'll have to watch it and decide by my self
