BATTLEFIELD EARTH is nothing, but a horrible and silly mess of a science-fiction film that is even worse than I expected. I criticise most of the things in the movie such as of course those corny lines such as "Rat-brain" and "While you are still learning how to spell your name, I was being trained to conquer galaxies!" and even the terrible acting by John Travolta. It has cool Dutch-camera angles which is when the director tilts the camera about 20 degrees either to the left or right which gives a real innovative bizarre but interesting look which I feel is ideal for a sci-fi movie such as this one. But not too much in this one which gives viewers a slight of some dizziness and headaches.
To me and the other critics, BATTLEFIELD EARTH is the most dumbest and my least favourite sci-fi film I ever reviewed. It could have been improved as an ordinary sci-fi film instead being an unsuccessful sci-fi/comedy which to me failed to bring humour to the screen or in any way entertain viewers with hardcore action like the STAR WARS series or THE MATRIX (click here). Definitely not the best work from Johnny T.
