Talking Roger Ebert reviews Battle: Los Angeles

I think he liked it.


Quote:
Here's a science-fiction film that's an insult to the words "science" and "fiction," and the hyphen in between them.
Quote:
The aliens are hilarious. Do they give Razzies for special effects? They seem to be animal/machine hybrids with automatic weapons growing from their arms, which must make it hard to change the baby.
Quote:
You gotta see the alien battleships in this movie. They seem to have been assembled by the proverbial tornado blowing through a junkyard.
Quote:
[The director] is given millions of dollars to produce this assault on the attention span of a generation.
Quote:
Young men: If you attend this crap with friends who admire it, tactfully inform them they are idiots. Young women: If your date likes this movie, tell him you've been thinking it over, and you think you should consider spending some time apart.

He is old school who grew up in an era where space ships were like bullets and took off/landed on its tail.

Not very realistic.
