Battle: Los Angeles (PG-13)

    Review by: Lisa

Title:  Battle:  Los Angeles

Starring:  Aaron Eckhart, Bridget Moynahan, Cory Hardrict, Michelle Rodriguez, Ramon Rodriguez

Collection:  Movies

For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before.

In a word, this movie is entertaining.   It has all of the elements of good summer movie fun:  an evil force of aliens who invade our planet without warning and without mercy; a group of underdogs who can’t possibly overcome these odds, can they?; a hero played by Aaron Eckhart who really wants to hang up his combat boots and retire when all of this breaks loose.   This is a fast paced thriller that can best be enjoyed with a bowl of popcorn and a group of friends.
