Los Angeles and other cities around the world are being bombarded by meteors that seem to be slowing down once they hit the earth's atmosphere. The earth is suddenly being invaded by space aliens that have landed off the shore of LA, and who begin killing everybody along the beach. The military is ordered into action. Marine Staff Sergeant Nantz (Aaron Eckhart), who was about to retire, is reassigned to a new platoon. The platoon, flown by chopper to the forward operating base at Santa Monica Airport, is being led by a new 2nd Lt. Martinez (Ramon Rodriguez). They are sent on a mission to rescue some civilians who are trapped at the police station within alien territory. They only have 3 hours to complete their mission and get out before the Air Force bombs that zone. Written by

Besides Capt. Williams' famous quote "Retreat hell, we just got here", there is another famous marine "Retreat Hell" quote. When his marines were surrounded at the Chosin River in Korea during the Korean War, Major General Oliver P. Smith was asked if they were retreating, he responded, "Retreat hell! We're not retreating, we're just advancing in a different direction". In Retreat, Hell! (1952), Frank Lovejoy's character, Lt. Col. Steve L. Corbett, issues the famous quote. See more »

Action, aliens, guns, explosions, cheese and some 'kick ass' special effects, sounds like the perfect movie evening in to me.
It starts you off in the action and keeps it coming right to end, which is unlike many action movies that have been coming out lately.
The character interaction and register is about the level you would expect along with the onslaught of one liners and cheese.
This movie's current IMDb rating of 5.9 is to be honest some what of a joke and should not put you off watching it at all. I would however suggest you go and watch something else if you feel like being intellectually stimulated.
I believe that people are turning their noses up to this movie on grounds that should not be brought up when reviewing this genre.
I also believe that people aren't generally stupid and if you watch Battle Los Angeles you'll know what kind of movie to expect and you won't be disappointed
