Cast Members of Note- Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan and... Ne-Yo?
Hollywood has Aliens invading the Earth, and this time they're here for our water (because we have a lot of that.) There's no Will Smith to help us this time, so naturally Aaron Eckhart and his rag-tag band of Marines are called upon to step up and do the job. He fist fought the Earth in The Core and saved humanity, so I have pretty strong confidence in his world-saving abilities in this one too.
|Yes, those are the world saving fists.|
|Aliens interrupt the Staff Sergeant's game of "Don't ask, don't tell, or I'll kill your puppy."|
No, the human conflict drives this movie forward. We get plenty of Alien battle goodness, don't get me wrong, but it just doesn't seem as fluffy as most Sci-Fi flicks do. Then again, maybe I'm just a sucker for awesome special effects and sappy speeches. And Michelle Rodriguez killing things. Either way, this is a fun flick that didn't make us feel less intelligent for watching it.For the most part.
|Deep, deep thinking is going on here.|
Aaron Eckhart's soul.
|He cares so much... maybe too much!|
Battle:LA isn't wining any Oscars or anything, that's for sure, but if you like your Alien invasions loud, action-packed and fun, then you really can't go wrong here. I think it fits in well with the POV/Hand Held sub-genre, along with flicks like Monsters and District 9.
Tom Brady knock her up, we like Bridget Moynahan. Tom Brady? I guess it's better than Ben Rapelesberger. Then again, she's banging McG now, so Tom Brady doesn't seem so bad at all by comparison...
