I'll probably regret saying this, but this doesn't look too bad.
This received some attention at the San Diego Comic Con, where it was first seen this summer; the rest of the population finally gets to see what the fuss was about. Decent cast involved: Aaron Eckhart (THANK YOU FOR SMOKING), perennial tough-girl Michelle Rodriguez (AVATAR), Bridget Moynahan (LORD OF WAR).
I haven't seen SKYLINE which just hit theaters Friday--and I'm not sure if I will after some pretty terrible, predictable reviews are coming in--but this looks infinitely better and believable. As believable as an alien invasion can get I suppose. It's funny how many films from the same vein always appear to be released within the same few weeks. Battle is one in a long line of extraterrestrial takeover flicks. This time Los Angeles is under siege. If we're lucky the aliens will take out Hollywood so they stop producing shit.
