Battle: Los Angeles (2011)


Director: Jonathan Liebesman
Starring: Aaron Eckhart, Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, others.
Release Date: March 10, 2011 (UAE)

Battle: Los Angeles is not, by any measure, an original movie, yet it manages to be engaging. Movies about alien invasions have been done often enough and better. In Battle: Los Angeles, director Jonathan Liebesman does it a little differently: he takes the Cloverfield approach. Instead of presenting the big picture, the focus stays on a small battalion of soldiers and their fight for survival.
