3 / 5

When formulating an opinion on postapocalyptic/alien invasion movies it’s important to consider their relevance and overall strength within the genre– not just their acknowledgement from high-horsed critics and overall box office success. Inside the genre Battle: Los Angeles hits, outside it fails miserably. The biggest downfall of this movie are some of its directorial decisions. While it could be interpreted as helping add a parallel to the pandemonium going on in the movie it might make sense, but the shaky camera approach seems to be most prevalent during scenes of unimportance and little action.  If you are someone who is willing to set aside their criticisms and come along for the ride you will most certainly enjoy this movie.

    I saw this movie and I liked it. By the end I was really hoping these marines stopped the madness. Even though I knew they would. We’ve come a long way from Will Smith punching aliens in the face and saying,”Welcome to Earth”, in Independence Day.
