Battlefield Earth

*

Roger Christian directs this adaptation of L. Ron Hubbard's sci-fi novel. John Travolta will star as the alien overlord of a conquered Earth. Barry Pepper will play Jonnie Goodboy, the human who opposes him. Forest Whitaker, Kim Coates, Sabine Karsent, Richard Tyson and Michael Byrne also star.

Capsule Review: Battlefield Earth is a pretty terrible film. It shamelessly steals from sci-fi films of the past to create a tale that...well...just isn't all that interesting. Some of the special effects are fair, but the plot is so vacuous that the film's not even worth watching purely on the basis of eye candy. It's not utterly horrible (like Supernova, for example), but not worth watching either. (Fox 2000)
