Battle: Los Angeles (Liebesman, 2011)

In all honestly, I had high hopes for Battle: Los Angeles after the thrilling trailer premiered earlier in the year. But alas, it was just another great hook to get American audiences into the theater for what turns out to be another underwhelming brain-dead genre film. There’s one kinetic action scene to die for, but the rest of this scattered war film is a daisy-chain of sappy dialogue, conventional plot points, and faux patriotism. Be warned.
