About Battle Los Angeles
Is it even possible to watch a realistic film that features diggers and aliens? The production staff behind the movie Battle Los Angeles seems to think so. There weren’t any A-list Hollywood actors cast in the movie. The cast led by Aaron Eckhart in the lead role as Michael Nantz, a retired Marine Staff Sergeant who needs to go back on duty to save the world from hostile aliens invading the planet. It was released in theatres on March 2011 in the United States before it was released internationally and was a major box office hit. The story line for Battle Los Angeles centres on the clash caused by extraterrestrials and modern military warfare strategies. The timeline began when alleged meteorites turn up as spaceships carrying antagonistic aliens. These aliens use drones to detect and attack anything that transmits radio frequency waves. The marines’ strategy is to find the alien command centre and destroy it in order to stop the drones from assaulting humans. Nantz eventually finds the alien war room and destroys it with missiles making the extraterrestrials retreat as drones malfunction. The movie ends with the remainders of Nantz’ diggers return to base and enlist themselves again to retake Los Angeles from alien control. Battle Los Angeles has a PG-13 rating, since it highlights the suspense instead of the violence involved with the clash of diggers and aliens. It is shot like a documentary from September to December 2009, with fab computer generated effects added during post production. Compared to other popular sci-fi films, this movie had aliens that were unique in the sense that they don’t resemble insects or any animal on Earth. Full DVD and Blu-ray discs were released on June 2011 after a video game was released on March 2011 developed by Live Action Studios.
