Goofs

When Heather flashes back to when her boyfriend was shot, the blood from the shooting splatters all over her face, hair, and the front of her shirt. However, when the bank robbers find her in the woods, she is spotlessly clean even though she never had opportunity to shower or clean her clothes. See more »

Quotes

The Hunter: [quoting a poem] A wise old owl lived in an oak The more he saw the less he spoke The less he spoke the more he heard. Why can't we all be like that wise old bird?

A toothless, limp, slimy predator.
13 June 2012 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

I'm going to keep this very simple. Imagine you have never had a creative idea in your life, so you watch Predator and decide it's so awesome you're going to remake it, except you don't have a monster, a jungle, special effects, actors, soldiers or talent. This is what Battleground is, a poorly hacked together rip off of Predator (with a bit of Hobo with a Shotgun). Scene for scene, line for line, Battleground tries to wear Predator's shoes and what is baffling to me is how so many people involved in the making of this film could have gone along with it. Was this really how the director wanted it? And they actually spent money to make this? Congratualtions, you've made it that much harder for real film makers to get funding.
