Not SyFy's worst, but it is down there as one of their all-time lows
14 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

I dislike a lot of SyFy's output but I watch them to see if they are ever going to do something worthwhile. They've made a few tolerable if hugely flawed ones, but mostly the movies aired on the SyFy channel are trash.

Battle of Los Angeles is not SyFy's worst, however it is down there as one of their all-time lows. One thing that really spoils it is the pace, throughout it is very turgid and severely undermines the action. Speaking of the action, most of it felt clumsy and further disadvantaged by poor editing.

The film itself looks cheap. The effects have a half-hearted, crude and unfinished look to them, and the photography is all over the map. The story is predictable and unengaging, the dialogue is clichéd and cringe-worthy, I didn't care for any of the characters and there is some really dire acting going on, in fact Battle of Los Angeles is one of the worst-acted SyFy films I've seen recently. The leads show no charisma, and the support cast is also uneven, some overact and some are so dull it is hard to tell whether they're actually acting.

Overall, an all-time low. 1/10 Bethany Cox
