Battle: Los Angeles

I'm going to start by giving you some film stats, about the plot, then go into my review. *WARNING - THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

Rating: PG13 for, "sustained and intense sequences of war violence and destruction, and for language."
Staring: Aaron Eckhart and Ramon Rodriguez.
Released: 11th of March, 2011.
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Thriller.

Aliens come down, from who-knows-where, to harvest our planet and kill all of humanity in the process. They attacked dozens of coastal locations around the world, with remarkable tactical skills and resilience. The worlds only defence is the military finding a way to out smart and out arm them. In grand shoot outs and chases this happens. But the battles not over just yet, they've only won back Los Angeles.

My Review:
So, I liked it, it had a few cheesy moments, but only a few. For instance "Maybe I can help. I'm a veterinarian." though the movie was at a sort of intense part, a few of my fellow movie goers and I couldn't help but laugh out loud. I was kind of expecting a boring extraterrestrial film, with violence, cussing, and gore to make up for lack of a plot, and bad acting. But it was interesting it had a little drama, but not so much that it takes away from this being an action film. It had allot of fun explosions, and such. I would say if you like action, you should watch this.

To sum it up, if you like action and aliens watch it.

I'm going to start by giving you some film stats, about the plot, then go into my review. *WARNING - THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*

Rating: PG for "Action and some language."
Staring: Will Ferrell and Brad Pitt
Released: 5th of November, 2010.
Genre: Animation, Action, Family, Comedy, Sci-Fi.

Escaping from dying planets two babies were sent to earth, both with strange ability's, one took on the name of Metro (Brad Pitt) Man and the other took a more "humble" name Megamind (Will Ferrell). One turned to the good ways of helping the city and the other took to the ways of destruction. Megamind and Metro Man battles for years until some fatal events left the city with no protector, and Megamind was set to rule the city, but he got bored of being the ruler and decide to create a new super hero to fight him. But as it seems that didn't work out and maybe Megamind isn't such a bad guy after all, maybe he does deserve love and happiness. Maybe megamind can take a turn at saving the city of Metropolis.

My Review:
It was great, the writers Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons must have had a blast writing this. It was very clever. You could watch it and pay attention and find that it has so many wonderful hidden things through out it and you would get so much out of it. Yet you could watch it, not pay attention, and still get it. It was wonderfully made, possibly one of the best animated films ever. Will Ferrell, and I'm sure Brad Pitt had a great time voicing it also, because it was so clever and funny. I would recommend this for every one except maybe children who are scared easily because there are a few moments that might scare a small child, but really it's great for anyone.

To sum it up, just watch it.
