Now that you've seen it, what did you think? What if aliens suddenly landed off the coast and quickly invaded every major city? How would our military fight back? Hitting theaters this weekend is Battle: Los Angeles, the intense new sci-fi action movie from director Jonathan Liebesman, featuring an ensemble cast of Marines lead by actor Aaron Eckhart. This is one we've been anxiously waiting to see for a while, so how is it? Does it live up to the fantastic trailers we've seen? How was all the military action and fight scenes with the enemy? If you've seen it, leave a comment below and let us know what you thought of Battle: LA!
To fuel the fire, I've seen Battle: Los Angeles twice and I still think it's awesome, I really enjoyed it. I wasn't expecting anything else out of this besides a gritty, entertaining action flick and that's exactly what it was - non-stop military action, pretty much like a video game in real life, which was cool as hell to see. I love how intense and real it all felt and how relentless the storyline was, jumping from one moment to the next right away. I think my only criticism is with the script and some cheesy dialogue in it, but overall, I really enjoyed the hell out of Battle: LA and I had a great time watching it, which is what counts the most when it comes to an entertaining popcorn movie like this. Eckhart kicked ass, the VFX looked great, it is just a badass movie.
What did you think of Battle: Los Angeles? Awesome sci-fi action or just cheesy and stupid?
