Battle: Los Angeles Reviews
Posted 03.10.11 by reelz
Based on early reviews, Battle: Los Angeles is leading the pack as the worst-reviewed movie of the year. Did the Chicago Tribune's Michael Phillips see the right flick?
"...a modest but crafty triumph of tension over good sense and cliche."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...so inept it's exhausting."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...stupid and very, very loud."
— Brian Lowry, Variety
"If Mystery Science Theater 3000 was still around, the gang would want to put this one in its sights pronto."
— Todd McCarthy, Hollywood Reporter
"Battle: Los Angeles is noisy, violent, ugly and stupid. Its manufacture is a reflection of appalling cynicism on the part of its makers, who don't even try to make it more than senseless chaos. Here's a science-fiction film that's an insult to the words 'science' and 'fiction,' and the hyphen in between them. You want to cut it up to clean under your fingernails."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
