World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles

Review: World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles

30 Mar 11

(very) Watchable

US marines vs. aliens. That is Battle Los Angeles. The film knows exactly what it wants to be and it doesn't give a hoo-rah what you think. It's pretty evident, spending a whopping 10 minutes on bare-bones character development (except for Michelle Rodriguez, who pops up part way wearing her I'm-a-badass-she-b**** badge). With a dialog-explosion ratio of approximately 1:4, there's no point dissecting World Invasion for its narrative value. If you want to see two hours of balls-to-the-wall extra terrestrial warfare, this movie satisfies. If you reserve your tastes for 'art', go watch The King's Speech for the 20th time.
