I actually did see it, but didn't like it. The Ausie brother team (forget their names) also did "Day Breakers", a hip vampire movie, which was just beyond ridiculously gory!
I think they have some good ideas, but I just don't think they've got the right combination for mass appeal yet. Maybe they'll get better. But then, my opinion isn't necessarily a standard setting kinda thing!
I liked the story sort of and the effects but the actors really let the movie down. Still liked watching it though, the marketing was really good, they had big posters with all the people getting sucked up into the spacecraft printed on a clear plastic scrolling up in front, very creative.
"The city of angels isn’t big enough for two alien invasion films – not if the studio behind Battle: Los Angeles has anything to say about it.
