Battle Los Angeles

Battle Los Angeles Review:Battle: Los Angeles begins by pushing us right into the action. A platoon of Marines in a chopper braces, under heavy fire from unknown forces. A glance at the back shows a scene of mass destruction, fire rained from the sky, chaos all around. For a few moments right there, the movie seems that it is on track. Then, the changes of history, flashing back to 24 hours later, before the inevitable alien invasion, when all the characters we're about to see the battlefield just happened to Stand around delivering monologues that tell the public everything you need to know about their personal lives. Yeah, that's what kind of action movie.

They threw in this flashback to trick you into thinking this movie has real character development, but it does not work. At best they have created some cliche stereotypes. He's the guy to retire, the virgin, who marries a soldier, and so on. It is all pretty thin and, worse, none of this matters. When the battle's heroes Los Angeles are in the midst of battle, they will all be reduced to shapes even shallower and you start to think of them as the one with glasses, Italian, the guy who is a kind of dick, the girl, and Aaron Eckhart. Aaron Eckhart, who, in one of the most unintentionally ironic script, pretty much sums up the whole movie in ending one of his monologues clumsy character building, waving his hand in the air and say, but did more important. "He's right, it does not work.

Good action movies develop their biological characteristics in the heat of battle or in the middle of the fight. Star Wars does not tell us the story of Han Solo during his life opening scene at the Cantina de Mos Eisely. It makes no sense. No one approaches a stranger and said, "Hi, I'm Han Solo. I am from Corellia, I like long walks on the beach, sunsets, and I am a big fan of Two and a Half Men. My mom bought me a parakeet when I was eight, but I really wanted a dog. "We got to know what Han was about when he was blasting around the Millennium Falcon, frightening the entire battalions of Storm Troopers with nothing but bravado. Battle: Los Angeles is not good enough to do that, and if it is not good enough or smart enough to cope with his characters in a way that makes no sense, so I hope you've assumed it's a bit clueless when it comes everything else too.

What works in this company lost? It is attention-grabbing style, similar to a movie totally alien invasion told from the perspective of a small group of Marines stranded behind enemy lines. The mission that takes our hero there, of course, does not make much sense. Your whole world is in flames while being attacked by hordes of hostile invaders, and how the military to respond? They lose a dozen of their best soldiers for a suicide mission to save two or three, probably already dead, irrelevant civil miles behind enemy lines. Yeah, that makes sense. But if you can ignore the reason why there is fun to be with Aaron Eckhart led the team to prowl around the building and operation of their fear of creature’s faceless mind shoot them in the distance. The film does a good job of building tension too, or would be if you were at every one of those that is increasing tension around.
Battle Los Angeles Review
Individual action sequences are well staged, although designed in a way that the film has probably saved a lot of money on the budget since the foreign soldiers are almost never seen up close, and always represented a step further, hiding behind things and shooting at enemies of man. Yet there are tensions. It is motivating scenes, the characters move the plot, which falls flat. The soundtrack of the movie is exciting.

Battle: Los Angeles is the kind of movie that ends with a defeat of the enemy by blowing up a magic thing that can hurt them and is ideally unsupervised scenarios. And even that feels tacked on, throws at the end because someone realized that they had spent the whole movie to roam around the suburb and had not actually delivered on the big set pieces. Well, there is one, maybe you even enjoy it, despite the fact that it makes no sense.
