Sci-fi action for those who just want to be entertained by the loud, undemanding, and familiar. Stoic Marine Staff Sgt. Nantz (Eckhart) and his platoon are the last line of defense, first on the Santa Monica streets, and then L.A. when Earth is attacked by outer space invaders who want to colonize our planet. There's no wink-wink to the audience as the script and the actors take their mission seriously as good soldiers should amidst all the pyrotechnics.
If you enjoy war movies. This is a good one. Scott at 2011-07-15 18:26:37
Watching the determination of the soldiers to battle the enemy was inspiring. It made me want to serve in our armed forces. Any soldier would be proud to watch this movie. Action packed movie keeps you wondering how it will end.
