I thought it was pretty good. Contains standard elements, as other reviewers remarked, but done very well. I also liked that they fought in a real city - I know, because I used to live a couple of blocks off that stretch of Lincoln Blvd in Santa Monica/Ocean Park. I am tired of actors in front of green screens who never interact with their environment because there isn't one there. I class it as one of those entertaining movies that is better than it had to be.

Not to be confused with Battle OF Los Angeles, which was much less satisfying to me.

Reviewed on 10/4/2013... first I thought, oh no, lots of talking that makes no sense and a meaningless plot. But things got better. Much better. Aliens are attacking the earth, city by city, and in this video it's Los Angeles the military is trying to protect from alien attack. Sure, you've seen this plot before ("Independence Day," for example), but once we finally get to see the alien creatures, it's not all that bad. Interesting creatures. We get some nice close up looks of them. There's even a little drama as amazingly courageous Marines (including one requisite female Marine) show those stinkin' alien creatures that they're no match for good old American courage and ingenuity.

Sure, it's a grade B typical alien invasion sci-fi flick. But after some difficulty getting started, it caught my attention.

No academy awards here for acting or special effects or originality or CGI. But reasonably engaging for a second tier sci-fi flick.

A pointless, boring and cliche filled mess. This movie combines elements from countless films together and doesn't have a single original moment throughout it. Bad acting, a cheesy script (that almost seems ab-libbed at times) and bad cgi.
