Battle Los Angeles
This movie has the plot of a videogame, and was about as entertaining as it would be to watch somebody else play it. A neat premise involving a somewhat realistic view of an alien invasion filmed like a war movie could have risen above the threadbare plot and cliched story points, but unfortunately the script was mediocre and the directing was flat, leaving little to recommend it other than a few good acting performances and some not too bad action sequences.
And... that's all I have to say about Battle Los Angeles, other than that I can't say I was too disappointed since everybody agreed that it was terrible, but even then it wasn't worth the one dollar rental fee from the Redbox machine. Skip it.
