To the naysayers who criticized the movie, what’d you expect? Oscar season is long over, and March is usually full of iffy films that studios dump before the summer blockbuster season. We should be so lucky to be treated to a heavily marketed, loud in-your-face popcorn flick that deserved to be (and easily could’ve been) released in the summer. Also, the movie is called Battle: Los Angeles, not Drama: Los Angeles, so of course it’s gonna be focused on war. And here within lies the film’s overwhelming strength.
