This was a battle alright..., 20 July 2013
Author: Paul Magne Haakonsen from Denmark

Well, given the production value and the budget for this movie, nothing much can be expected from it, and truth be told, the movie doesn't really deliver.

Despite this fact, then I have to say that the effort and force behind the movie was well-meant and wholeheartedly. And credit should be due for the effort that was put into this movie, at least. Sure, this isn't a major Hollywood blockbuster, nor is it a multi-million dollar budget movie. But for an amateur movie-maker project, then "The Medic" (aka "Battle Earth") was a good attempt, and it did seem that the people had fun making it and participating in it.

The story in the movie was really tame and weak, and it was basically a no-brainer from start to end. It was really a challenge to keep focus on the movie, as it just had nothing to offer at all.

Don't expect to see award-winning performances here in this movie. This is a low-budget movie, and the people hired for the movie weren't seasoned actors, and it showed through the performances on the screen. But still, I bet they had fun running around in uniforms fighting aliens in hilarious costumes.

Bring coffee with you if you plan to sit down and make it through this movie. Because keeping focus all throughout the movie is somewhat of a battle!
