Battle: Los Angeles Theater or Renter?

Battle: Los Angeles is hitting the theaters 3-11-11 and thus begs the question: Theater? Renter? or don’t even care?

Before answering that we should address our expectations.  This is an alien invasion style movie this means that I don’t expect to find a thoughtful story, epic dialogue or deep characters those things are a bonus with this type of movie. 

What I do expect to find is

  • Action lots of action
  • Explosions, I said lots of action including explosions so many to make Michael Bay proud.
  • Cool aliens, they should at lest visually be stunning.
  • Cool alien tech preferably attached to the action and mecha / giant killer robots a plus.
  • A fun movie

With this in mind check out the trailer below.

This movie promises lots of action, explosions, cool aliens, cool alien tech and even giant killer robots!  Not only does it have that but this is a well put together trailer which is hopefully a sign of the quality of the move to proceed.  The music is provocative and the tension is exciting.

Definitely a theater for me!

Plot / Story

For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world - Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world's great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It's up to a Marine Staff Sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they've ever encountered before.  (Wikipedia)(official site
