1.0 out of 5 stars A completely ludicrous film August 6, 2002
Format:DVD
When you sit down to see a movie, you know suspension of disbelief is a must. Especially when the film is a science fiction. You know a lot of things in the movie can't really happen, but you can let yourself believe you can for those two hours you're immersed in another world. Unless, of course, the movie is too ludicrous and everything that happens screams disbelief. Battlefield Earth has enough unbelievable situations for three terrible movies. (Warning, minor spoilers ahead).
The premise of the film asks you to accept that a supreme alien race conquered Earth in 9 minutes, and then for 1,000 years have reaped the land for natural resources, namely gold. So a civilization so advanced it can take control of a planet so quickly, hasn't found all the gold on Earth yet? And hasn't even found Fort Knox yet? And they don't have a clue that humans are intelligent enough to operate mining equipment (They laugh at the thought of humans being able to do any work), yet they live in the ruins of Denver, surrounded by obvious signs of an intelligent race which they enslaved. At one point in the film, even, these humans, who have been forced to live in caves or cages, find an army base filled with still working planes and weapons, and learn how to operate everything as good as any experienced pilot or soldier, in only a few days. I could go on; these are just the tip of the iceberg.
Besides the ridiculous leaps of belief the movie asks you to make, there is more to despise here. For example, the pacing is atrocious. In the first 5 minutes of the movie, you meet Jonnie (Barry Pepper) as he returns to his home tribe, says a few words to the woman we're told he's romantically involved with, gets in a fight with the head of the tribe about how they should venture out of their caves, and leaves.

1.0 out of 5 stars Big Budget 'Plan 9' Remake!!! October 24, 2003
Format:DVD
For starters, every single terrible thing you have heard about this film is 100% true! And while that may be bad for Scientology cult disciples and any other half wit who invested money in the films production, it's brilliant for lovers of so bad they're good flicks.
The plot/plot holes: It's 1000 years into the future and earth is over run by an invading 9-foot tall alien race called 'Psychlos' (umm? 'psychos' and don't expect the difference in height to be as well filmed as in the LOTR trilogy, psychlos are created by having 'actors' stumble around in shoulder pads on obvious platform shoes), man-animalkind is made up of slaves and other living like cavemen in tattered clothes (not bad wear considering their clothing should be 1000 years old plotwise), man-animal Barry Pepper ventures out to be captured and enslaved. Cut to scenes of ridiculous alien banter about 'leverage' and of them double crossing each other (how did such an unorganized race take over the world in 9 minutes?!), scheming psychlo Travolta wants to secretly mine gold (aliens value gold too?) in a zone aliens can't go (alien air reacts badly to radiation?) so he expands Pepper's mind by a laser light show and teaches him to fly?! (it's not enough that they leave the slaves working unsupervised and not under guard around control panels but they have to teach one to read psychlo and fill his head with useful info). Born again scientologist Pepper (after his education he starts spouting Hubbard's mantras like "maths in the universal language") doesn't really mine but merely picks up gold from fort Knox (after 1000 years of alien occupation they still haven't found the gold at Fort Knox?

1.0 out of 5 stars AS BAD AS IT GETS August 5, 2002
Format:DVD
John Travolta has done some bad movies in his career (Michael, Perfect, Phenomenon, Mad City, Two of a Kind). It's too bad because Travolta's a good actor, and has had his share of good movies too (Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction, Grease, Face/Off). But Battlefield Earth is as awful as movies come.
He plays Terl, an alien from the planet Psychlo. He looks like hell. They have given him ugly claw-like hands, billowy eyebrows, and a massive bush of dreadlock hair. The make up designer has copied the aliens from Star Trek and Star Wars so he looks like a cross between a Klingon and a Cantina alien.
This has also got to be the worst performance of Travolta's career. He tries to make Terl a diabolic, yet sarcastic villain and it just doesn't work. Given, he's working with a horrible script, and doesn't have much support from other cast members, but I expected more of a Darth Vader-like bad guy. Terl is not menacing at all, and quickly turns into a joke rather than a true villain. His appearance on screen is an annoyance as he hams it up, sniffing and cackling somewhat like Jack Nicholson's Joker.
Ludicrous is the only word to explain the rest of the film. The script is based on a 1982 novel by the founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard. Travolta is a known follower of Scientology, and maybe that explains why he did the film. It is badly photographed, with set design that is drab and chintzy, looking a lot like Blade Runner (though not nearly as good). It's the most dismal, depressing art direction and cinematography I've ever seen.
It takes place in the year 3000, when mankind is near extinction and many Psychlos have colonized Earth. Terl is Earth's chief of security, patrolling our destroyed cities with his troops and watching over the few humans (man animals!
