Battle Los Angeles

Synopsis: Los Angeles and other cities around the world are being bombarded by meteors that seem to be slowing down once they hit the earth's atmosphere. The earth is suddenly being invaded by space aliens that have landed off the shore of LA, and who begin killing everybody along the beach. The military is ordered into action. Marine Staff Sergeant Nantz (Aaron Eckhart), who was about to retire, is reassigned to a new platoon. The platoon, flown by chopper to the forward operating base at Santa Monica Airport, is being led by a new 2nd Lt. Martinez (Ramon Rodriguez). They are sent on a mission to rescue some civilians who are trapped at the police station within alien territory. They only have 3 hours to complete their mission and get out before the Air Force bombs that zone.

so beautiful. What do you think?

300 dollars? Goodness gracious.

It's a no-brainer. You're only getting

married once. Worry about 300 bucks?

- Thank you, Stavrou. Thank you.

- Yeah, no worries.

You know what? It's your day.

Do whatever you want.

I'm gonna hit you with something.

What are you doing?

Busting your balls.

Tomorrow we shop for cakes.

And I can't wait.

I love cake.

Yo, Doc. What you doing?

Skyping back home.

Is that your girlfriend? Damn, she fine.

Doc. My boy.

That's my sister.


Shoot, man. I'm speaking objectively

here, you know what I'm saying?

All right, no, stop playing!

May I take a message?

Doc, is it all right

if I have one of those first?

You eat it at your own risk.

They're very old.

So do you feel

that you're making progress?

Yeah, yeah. Yeah.

I'm sleeping a lot better.

And then also around the firing range

and everything...

...when I first came back

and hear the pop, pop, pop...

...l'd get jumpy and it would mess with

me a bit and a little bit of a setback.

But now it, you know...

...doesn't bother me.

So I think that's progress.

So, what's the story

with my status, doc?

I mean, are you gonna clear me

for combat? Because...

Yeah, I feel good.

Let's meet again next week...

...and we'll discuss it. Okay?

All right, thank you.

Thank you very much, doc.

Harris' girl is making the dude

organise his entire wedding...

...two weeks before we deploy.

I say the chick's busting his balls

like nobody's business.

But he got two weeks to get it done

because we're out.

So I just came by to visit you

one last time before we leave.

And I brought Dad's five iron with me.

And you know what that means.

Me and the boys are gonna

go out tonight, continue the tradition.

Have a good time, you know?
