Battle: Los Angeles Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sighting around the world - Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world's great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It's up to a marine staff sergeant (Aaron Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they've ever encountered before.

Review: This film was advertised as an alien invasion film, which it is, but the trailers were a bit misleading.  Battle: Los Angeles is, at it's core, a war film.  The movies has a few cliche archetypes for characters, but honestly most of this film focuses on military life and the marine maneuvers that go into defeating an enemy in an urban landscape.  A lot of inside jargon.  The enemy in the film just happens to be aliens...but that turns out to be more of an afterthought.
