Transcript for Roger's Office: Battle: Los Angeles

IGNATIY VISHNEVETSKY:
Aaron Eckhart is all that stands between us and total annihilation in Battle: Los Angeles.  I’m Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of mubi.com. 

CHRISTY LEMIRE:
And I’m Christy Lemire of The Associated Press.  We’re going to start this show by stopping in to Roger’s Office as he reviews the epic sci-fi thriller Battle: Los Angeles

ROGER EBERT:
"Battle: Los Angeles" is violent, ugly and stupid. I can't imagine anyone enjoying this movie, unless they want to watch a bad video game for two hours without getting to play it.  This is Bill Kurtis for Roger Ebert.

ROGER:

Earth is being hit by a meteor shower. The meteors are aimed just off shore of the world's major cities. It turns out the action is so confusingly edited that it's impossible to get any idea of where the aliens are, or what they're doing, or why they are attacking Earth in the first place. 

ROGER:
The aliens make a gurgling sound,  the humans shout brief words at each other, and stuff blows up real good. It's only March, and "Battle: Los Angeles" is already the worst movie of this year, and many other years.

CHRISTY:
Ok thanks for that Roger.
