Battle: LA is a fairly enjoyable (but generic) popcorn flick that will probably be forgotten soon enough, but will be a fairly fun ride while it lasts.
Going into Battle: Los Angeles I had heard quite a mix of reviews. Some saying it was poor, others saying it was a great war movie. So, of course, I assumed most of them were full of shit and the truth lay somewhere in the middle. For this reason, I went into the movie with an open mind, but no big expectations. As a result, Battle: Los Angeles proved my theory right as it turned out to be an entertaining popcorn flick. If definitely wasn’t short of its share of faults, nor was it a great movie, but it was enjoyable popcorn flick which, at its heart, is seemingly all it’s meant to be (or at least all it should be seen as).
