KILL THE ALIENS! Battle: Los Angeles is a guilt-free war movie

Nine out of 10 aliens agree: there’s nothing like a good alien invasion flick – provided the aliens win, of course.

It’s bound to happen one of these times. Probably not this weekend, though. Opening in theatres Friday, Battle: Los Angeles stars Aaron Eckhart as a battle-hardened Marine sergeant fighting a horde of advanced extraterrestrials bent on destroying humanity. We’ve heard this premise before and it never gets old. Think War of the Worlds meets Platoon. It’s a war movie without any difficult dilemmas or moral issues. Kill the aliens!
