Format:DVD
The dubiously titled "Battle of Los Angeles" was named such for the sole purpose of confusing audiences with its similarly themed big screen counterpart "Battle: Los Angeles." This mini-epic even premiered on the SyFy network on the same weekend that the other film invaded local theaters. I've never called a film shifty before, but there's always the first time. The name game is an obviously cheap shot to bilk the DVD audience, but what makes it especially heinous is that this film has nothing whatsoever to do with Los Angeles. I didn't really expect a lot going into this movie, but the generic and fake cityscape had no relationship to La La Land at all. As a former Angeleno, I love cheesy science fiction that creates havoc with well known establishments. I relish the destruction of the Hollywood sign, the invasion of Rodeo Drive, the collapse of the Capital Records building, tourists fleeing in horror down the Walk of Fame. You get nothing here to identify any particular city, much less one of the most famous destinations ever. This might have just as easily been called the Battle of Tulsa, but that wouldn't have fooled anyone--would it? But the point is rather moot anyway as ninety percent of the action takes place in desolate fields and rubble.

"Battle of Los Angeles" is headlined by the big names of Kel Mitchell (in case you've been missing him since Kenan & Kel) and Nia Peeples. In short, the nominal plot of the film is that unknown forces have invaded Los Angeles--a big spaceship hovers over downtown while peripheral flying objects do battle with our cast of 12 actors running amok over barren concrete slabs. The alien technology never seems particularly frightening as one is taken down by a pistol and, in the film's most inspired sequence, one is destroyed by a sword. Yes, a sword!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Waste Your Time Or Money March 10, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie will be shown on the SyFy channel March 12th, 2011. Most of those made for TV movies on the SyFy channel are not very good. Some producers and directors these days don't know how to make a good SciFi movie. Hopefully this movie will be an exception.

Update: I just finished watching it. I'd give it no stars if possible. This ranks as one of the worst scfi movies I've ever seen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy March 28, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Very low budget and full of logical inconsistencies from the first few minutes of the movie. I was only able to make it through about 20 minutes of the movie before I had to shut it off. Worst movie I have seen in a LONG time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Possibly one of the worst movies ever April 4, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I don't understand why this movie is even in Amazon's download catalog. It should be destroyed. Like the first reviewer I was only able to make a few minutes into the movie, however unlike the first reviewer, I stopped it after 8 minutes and deleted. It looks more like a bad high school video than an actual movie. Please don't waste your money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad from asylum March 12, 2011
Format:DVD
I watched it on syfy, and it wasnt as bad as I thought it was going to be since its made by Asylum. I was figuring I was going to see the same effect's repeated like 20+ times, and the same death seens 2+ times. They did not reuse their effects as often in this movie, but there was the usual: Bad acting, slow story, head nodding seens... I may watch it agian in the far future. If you are interested in seeing it, I would suggest renting it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Who could have made this? April 10, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This movie was bad from the start. Special effects were 1980's television level. The plot was stealing from every science fiction movie ever made...and throw in a little Ninja action. I began to look at it as pure comedy, but it quickly got so boring that I turned it off

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT INDEPENDENCE DAY April 5, 2011
Format:DVD
The movie runs along the same theme as Independence Day, except it takes place in a studio city called "Los Angeles. We don't have much character building before the aliens invade. These aliens appear to be based on early sketches of Star Wars contraptions. The real downside is that these super aliens use conventional weapons; no lasers or special bombs. The movie is mostly gun play. It would have made for a great video game, but as movie it was not worth the view.

4.0 out of 5 stars This movie had to be fun for the cast and crew.
Admittedly a low budget film, this movie asks an important question: If we were actually holding a captured "alien" against its will, would his buddies attempt a rescue?
