World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles

I recently watched this movie, and had the sudden idea of writing about it! So here is my own review of World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles.



His reputation is tarred. People snigger at him when he passes by. The team he has been appointed to refuses to recognize orders from him. And he had got retirement permission. Alas! The alien invasion!

This is the story of Sgt. Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart) who strives to find peace in his life after an unsuccessful attempt at a mission losing all of his team members. He applies for retirement. The focus of the movie for the first quarter is HIM. We watch how he almost got freed when batches of meteors disrupt the civilization on earth and he is called again to service.

As the US army prepares themselves to face an unknown dawn of terror threatening Los Angeles, they realize that they are dealing with an Alien Invasion! Then again our Sergeant comes into focus as he gets his orders to accompany a team to a police station and get all victims of the destruction safely on a scheduled chopper. The proposed bomb drops were to destroy the already destroyed city to destroy the ETs.
This is the basic plot, except that they don’t get the people on chopper in time, and the bomb drops never happen, and Sergeant decides to handle things his way.
Apart from the action, you will also witness a boy missing his dad and realizing responsibilities, the Marine spirit of the men and the sergeant fighting his own past when his future is so terrifyingly haunted!

The movie is sensible. The visual effects are way too hot to take eyes away from. The direction is good. If you are in a mood for some thriller, watch this movie! It’s got nearly everything. Some scenes had me gripping the seat of the theater hall, some had me shouting in joy, some made me drop my corns in terror (especially when you meet the alien for the first time!) Laughs will be few, but joy will be plenty! Hope you like the movie too!

And always remember, a movie watched in theater has the best impression ever!
