59. Battle:Los Angeles

10 minutes into this movie. The movie about Aliens that attack Earth and the group of Marines that lead a charge to lead a group of civilians to safety and take back their city. So 10 minutes into this movie I turn and look at my wife and simply say…..”We are going to buy this.”

There are, I have found, certain movies that as soon as it starts you just start to feel something special, you get so engrossed right away that you know you will want to watch it again and again. For example this has happened to me in such movies as Twister, Dark Knight and The Blind Side. Battle:Los Angeles is awesome. So action packed. It is one of those movies that is non stop action. It stars Aaron Eckhart (two face in Dark Knight) as the leader of this group of marines. Eckhart is a man’s man. Don’t need nothing but a gun and a fight.
Our Hero.

But Battle:LA works when some Aliens are attacking might fail. Skyline for example was horrible. But in the same movie family as Armageddon and Independence Day Battle:LA makes you want to win. Makes you want the Marines to continue. Not to mention that filmmakers here do an outstanding job portraying the Marines as the courageous patriots that they are. While it is a “guy movie” Battle:LA is awesome and the best movie I have seen thus far in 2011. Can't wait for the sequel. Maybe it will be Battle:St. Louis!

Final Verdict: Can't wait to own it!


  1. I think that this would actually be a good movie. I would like to see it. They can attack St. Louis as long as they don't harm Busch stadium!

  2. I wanted to see this movie but went into it with a bad attitude since I really wanted to see I am Number 4 more. Still came out enjoying it so that's a good sign. I do like Aaron Eckhart a lot. I think he is a good actor.

  3. Jimmy kept telling me how AWESOME this movie was. I guess I need to see it. I like Aaron Eckhart too. A fine actor, "Thank You for Smoking" a very funny (in a sick kinda way) movie.So...since I like action flick that a lot of things get blown up in...I will have to make sure I see this one...soon.
