Over-edited and under-directed, complete with cheesy dialogue, clichéd characters and weak story and acting- sorry I did not like it, 16 March 2011
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I watch films of all genres, old and new, good and bad, and while I wasn't completely taken with the idea of Battle:Los Angeles I was interested in seeing it. Unfortunately I didn't like it. I will get the good things out of the way first, the CGI is of decent standard, the bridge siege set-piece is fairly impressive and Aaron Eckhart does try hard, in the beginning he is the best asset of the film portraying the only likable character, even if he is rather clichéd.

However at the halfway mark, Eckhart's character becomes less likable and his performance, which involves a lot of shouting and uttering poorly written and delivered "rousing" speeches, gets weaker. The rest of the acting ranges from just adequate to very poor, particularly Michelle Rodriguez and the less said about her one-liners the better, and they are not helped by the fact that the characters are little more than bland stereotypes that we learn very little about other than the odd snippet of information. The dialogue is very, very weak too, very characterless and cheesy as well, the film is dull in the pace and is too long too and the explosions are shoddy and get too much.

I was especially disappointed in Battle:Los Angeles' direction, which is one of the blandest and soulless directorial jobs I have seen in a long time. The film is very over-edited as well, while I have nothing against shaky cam I do when it adds next to nothing to the proceedings and it was used so much I felt nauseus at the end, and the rest of the set pieces are murky and incoherent. The story is weak and wanders off the point so many times complete with a very narrow world-view, a very unsatisfying ending in the sense it felt tacked on and laughably rubbish alien forces.

In conclusion, Battle: Los Angeles was a movie I tried to like but I couldn't even enjoy it, due to its poor direction and dialogue and its over-editing. 3/10 Bethany Cox
