Battle LA

Slow start, but eventually, I liked it.  The dialog seemed very stilted at the start, but maybe that's how they talk in the military.  Then the explosions started; and they went on, and on, and on...  The first 30 minutes of the film is a pyrotechnic's dream. You can't see where the explosions are coming from, and neither can the American soldiers, because they keep saying "I can't see anything."  I think they might have been trying to build up to seeing the "enemy", but if it was, it failed.  Finally the movie starts with some dialog and characters.  It's a little cheesy at times, but bearable for me.  Overall it was OK, not a must see, but I was glad I saw it.  I'd give it 2 stars, but if I were splitting it up, I'd give the first half of the movie 1/2 stars and the second half 2 1/2.

  1. You are funny! Great synopsis; this tells me a lot. Yet another one that looked like it could've been awesome, but doesn't sound amazing. It's not at the top of my list now. Great review!
