ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review "Battle: Los Angeles" takes a big "what would happen if" premise - in this case, a massive alien invasion - and then fulfills that premise by taking it seriously. Not self-seriously. The movie is lots of fun, but it stays true to the terms it establishes, telling the story through the eyes of one Marine platoon assigned to rescue civilians in Santa Monica...In this way, we see the aliens only as the guys see them - first, in just brief glimpses, then later, in intimate and grotesque detail. We get acclimated to battle. And the whole time we feel the anxiety of knowing we're only getting a piece of the story, that other battles are waging, on the East Coast, in Paris, in London, in Japan, and that victory seems almost inconceivable..."Battle: Los Angeles" is not in the big-picture, crowd-pleasing tradition of "Independence Day." Think of it as "The Hurt Locker" of alien invasion movies...Essential to the movie's success is Aaron Eckhart, who plays a Marine staff sergeant as though he were in a World War II movie: no camping it up, no comedy, no winking at the audience, no smiling. He's just a tough guy, with lots of emotional scars, who is very good at his job. Eckhart's commitment to the movie's reality, which is as fierce as the sergeant's commitment to his men, takes what otherwise might merely have been outlandish and makes it believable, and frightening...Christopher Bertolini's screenplay isn't big on witty repartee, but he takes time to introduce each character, and throughout Bertolini and director Jonathan Liebesman find ways to define every phase of the catastrophe in human terms. No shortcuts were taken in the crafting of the story...The battle in "Battle: Los Angeles" is grab-the-armrest tense until the last seconds.

Armond White, New York Press ...a consistent depiction of military performance, duty and sacrifice that is so unexpected that the film's genre transforms from fantasy to war movie.
Ty Burr, Boston Globe This is what a grunt's-eye-view of alien invasion looks like.
