Battlefield Earth

The Funniest Quotes from the Reviews




(The numbers after each sentence is the article reference - to be found at the bottom of the page)

The Look

The Aliens

Sort of like Klingons, only with blow-drier technology. (4)

be-1.jpg (25913 bytes)

Terl (Travolta) is an ugly baddie with a bouffant stack of dreadlocks on his head. (7)

His hair is a bird's-nest mess, piled upon his head like Miss Beehive 1962, and it probably hasn't been washed since 2950. (40)

The Psychlos reminded me of a cross between Jamaican basketball players with bad teeth and bloated hands and Klingon extras working the Star Trek convention circuit. (28)

The Psychlos look like members of a really tall, leather-fetishist heavy-metal rock band with bad teeth, dreadlocks and hairy, fat hands. (35)

This production certainly had the budget for lots of explosions, but it couldn't design an alien that didn't look like something involving a very tall person, fake hair, rubber cement and a Halloween party to get to in half an hour. (40)

And he looks so silly I started laughing every time he popped up on screen. (40)



The Humans

Humans are back to wearing fur, and braids are still a popular coiffure. (42)

battlefieldearth.gif (19496 bytes)

The humans with whom Johnny unites are an indistinguishable mass of hair extensions and leather vests. (3)

Everybody in the film, in short, looks like they know where to find truly excellent weed. (31)



The Hero

The hero of the film somehow manages to remain constantly clean shaven in a world with no razors (6)

_746142_barry_pepper150.jpg (7820 bytes)

The hero of the film is Jonnie Goodboy Tyler (yes, Goodboy is his actual middle name), a man who has clearly been born to save the human race by virtue of the fact that he somehow manages to remain constantly clean shaven in a world with no razors, a world in which every other male character has copious amounts of facial hair. (6)

… a rebel leader in the making, who stands out for at least two reasons: He's a proud, fearless man, and he sports girlie Bo Derek-like braids. (35)



Platform Boots

Terl and sidekick Ker lumber on platform boots. (42)

Of course, it doesn't get much credibility support from the costume department as John Travolta and his fellow nine-foot tall aliens look like a bad cross between the restyled Klingons from "Star Trek" and the platform shoe wearing members of the rock group KISS from their heyday in the 1970s. (9)

The only people this film could recruit are members of the rock band Kiss, who, with their high-heeled boots and face paint, might figure they've got a spot if this alien thing ever really came down. (11)

012a8.gif (119775 bytes)

Psychlos are 8 feet tall, and when they walk in their storm-trooper-style overcoats, they wobble like basketball players in high heels. See why it's hard to keep a straight face? (40)

Swaggering about in his platforms and padded leather outfit, Travolta (and much of the movie) is almost over-the-top enough to be bad in a good way. But it's too lame even for that. Maybe he needed higher platforms. (33)



Other Features

Nose air tubes, huge tongues, and giant prosthetic crotches

0,1615,194888-l,00.jpg (6046 bytes)

Terl wears a strange breathing apparatus clamped to his nose -- like the rest of the movie featuring a harsh, 1930s German industrial design -- that suggests a cross between two dangling shoelaces and something you'd pick up in Frau Wahlheim's Sexual Novelties Parlor. (40)

They wear tacky tubes to breath Earth air. And their tongues. Don't ask about their tongues. (20)

Terl, an evil alien "Psychlo", who, at best, resembles an extremely well-endowed member of the KISS Army. (15)




Man may have been endangered, but women were just about extinct. (15)

be-5.jpg (32491 bytes)

STRONG CHICK FACTOR: A bit hard to come by when there's only one girl on the planet. Fellow Scientologist/John Travolta's wife Kelly Preston as a Psychlo concubine doesn't really help matters any either. (15)

It also includes bumping into the girlfriend (Sabine Karsenti) he left behind in the Rockies for this mission. Karsenti gets the Lando Calrissian award for least amount of screen time. And her only dramatic purpose in the story is to be a hostage so Terl can influence Jonnie Goodboy with his Psychlo-style leverage. (35)


The Script

All You Need to Know

There's more, but why bother?  (48)

bfearth_poster.jpg (14205 bytes)

Battlefield Earth is a bloated sci-fi monstrosity starring John Travolta as a leering buffoon in dreadlocks who battles sweaty savages for control of a scorched world. No, it is not Wrestlemania. (25)

Set in the year 3000, the film depicts humans as an endangered species rounded up and abused by the nasty Psychlo alien race. Then . . . well, there is no "then." That's essentially the whole plot. (30)

Whatever. There's more, but why bother? Even Travolta, who has wanted to make this movie for years, flops. (48)

In short, ""Battlefield Earth'' will leave even the most stalwart science-fiction fan longing to run from the theater. That's about all you need to know. But, for those who want the ridiculous details, read on. (48)



The Story

They lead an assault on the Death Mall and stuff blows up big time. (47)

trav.jpg (16080 bytes)

Let me try to summarize the plot. It's 3000 A.D., and the Psychlos are strip-mining Earth. (47)

[The Psychlos got rid of Earth civilisation in nine minutes, 1000 years ago] Unfortunately, some members of mankind remained (had they been extinguished, we would have been spared this movie). (44)

What humans they haven't exterminated seem to have de-evolved and live in caves or primitive huts outside the giant mall-like structure that the Psychlos call home. (47)

Food begins to run short so a caveman named Jonnie Goodboy Tyler [his real middle name, no kidding, and smarter than your average caveman at that] decides to leave his village in search of a more bountiful homeland with plentiful game and abundant conditioning products for his hair extensions. (39)

On the other side, the planet's chief of security, Terl [Travolta, the Chief Security Psychlo] is more than a little restless. He can't get assigned off Earth after screwing the wrong guy's daughter. (37)

For Psychlos, being exiled to Earth is apparently something like getting stationed in Newark, NJ. (36)

Jonnie Goodboy Tyler (Barry Pepper, looking like some '80s heavy-metal guitarist en route to Betty Ford's) gets ray-gunned by Psychlos. Enslaved, Jonnie catches the eye of Terl, who has evidently been looking for a smart human to help him plunder what's left of the planet and keep it for himself. He zaps Jonnie with a knowledge ray and then, for some reason, lets him read the Declaration of Independence. (47)

Somehow, Jonnie comes out of the machine spouting off about Euclid's postulates. Euclid was not a Psychlo. You can look it up. (48)

[While smart Jonnie gets smarter thanks to the Psychlo Gizmo that zaps his eyeballs with knowledge, including that ot the aliens, their language and their plans], the audience is never so lucky. The narrative is unclear beyond this one fact: Apes control the planet and humans are their slaves. Oops. Wrong movie - but not by much. (21)

Terl does have the secret location of a previously unknown gold streak, as well as the stupidest plan ever conceived in recent cinema without the aid of either Jim Carrey or Michael Rappaport. With the aid of the steepest learning curve ever witnessed in any movie, Johnny just might be able to fly through the enormous plot holes and rescue his people. (37)

Terl sends Jonnie and a group of other humans off to the mountains to mine gold with no supervision whatsoever, so they have lots of time to cram for math exams and plot their uprising. (31)

Soon Jonnie is using geometry and biology and a dusty old copy of the Declaration of Independence to inspire his fellow man-animals to revolution. (49)

I'm not sure what happens next because I went out for malted milk balls and then remembered I owed my mom a phone call. When I got back, Jonnie was leading some cavemen on a tour of Fort Knox, various decadent Psychlos were arguing among themselves, and Travolta was going, "Hah-hah-hah-hah!" A short time later, Jonnie is in Fort Hood, Texas, turning the cavemen into supersonic fighter pilots. They lead an assault on the Death Star—I mean, the Death Mall—and stuff blows up big time. (47)




The implausibilities and inconsistencies pile upon each other higher than a Psychlo hair-do. (40)

flo-travolta.jpg (21276 bytes)

The plot has holes big enough to sail the Titanic through. (26)

The script is so full of holes it could be used as a sponge. (14)

The screenplay is credited to Corey Mandell and JD Shapiro, who may want to seriously consider changing their names. (49)



Learning Curve

Jonnie and cronies leap from primeval ignorance to high-tech fighter jocks able to pilot planes. (46)

_746142_forest_whitaker_as_ker150.jpg (8175 bytes)

Stirred by the rebel slogan "piece of cake" (as in, "Hey, it's a . . . "), the cave-dwelling illiterates are led by Jonnie to the defunct base of Fort Hood, Texas. In just seven days, each a piece of cake, they master flying antique, supersonic fighters that evidently have not decayed in centuries of neglect. (8)

But that's nothing compared to the way another ""man animal,'' a cave dweller from the wilds of Colorado, is able to learn how to fly a Harrier jet (somehow in perfect working order after 1,000 years) in a matter of hours. ""It's just like breaking a horse,'' he says. He then goes on to teach others how to fly the jets, and within a week they're flying like aces. (48)

They learn to do this by using an U.S. Air Force flight simulator that has also been left lying around for a millennium. They may be illiterate ``man-animals,'' as the Psychlos call them, but they're quick studies and a credit to American ingenuity. (25)

I'm sure the Air Force would appreciate a training program like that. (35)

And they also figure out how to—skip the rest of this sentence if you don't want to know the ending!—not only destroy the Earth-residing Psychlos, but the entire Psychlo planet light years away! (44)

Strangely enough, the movie Battlefield Earth itself was assembled by a ragtag band of aliens who stumbled upon an abandoned Hollywood studio and, in just a few short days, taught themselves the rudiments of screenwriting, filmmaking and editing. At least, that's my best guess. What else could account for this unholy mess of a sci-fi extravaganza ? (19)



American Quality

The jets have been standing unused for several centuries and still work like they had an oil, lube and filter job yesterday. (22)

_746142_travolta_terl_300.jpg (7503 bytes)

If you think Denver has problems now, you should see it in the year 3000. (46)

The ruins have held up well after 1,000 years. (Library books are dusty but readable, and a flight simulator still works, although where it gets the electricity is a mystery.) (28)

And if it has really been eons since the Psychlos destroyed civilization, how come you can still read road signs ("Aspen City Limits") and tattered books in ransacked libraries? (27)

Or consider the scene where the humans find a bunker filled with thousand year old dynamite, in neatly labeled cases, which is still good. I seem to remember reading that dynamite "sweats" nitroglycerine and is highly unstable. I get the feeling thousand year old TNT would not be much good. I'm positive that thousand year old Harrier jets do not simply launch. I mean, for crying out loud, you're supposed to start your car at least once a month to keep it running and it's not nearly as complex as a Harrier jet. (17)

Let's just say it's nice to know that an entire fleet of American fighter jets can be maintained in pristine condition (and even gassed up!) while every shopping mall in the land has crumbled. (40)

Although it's possible, but not likely, that such weaponry wasn't used in the humans' last-ditch effort to defend their world eons ago, it's preposterous to think that the jets, machine guns and walkie-talkies would still work after a thousand or so years. If battery companies and defense contractors were still around in that day and age, you could bet they'd be using such "antiques" as testimonials for their products ("It keeps going and going - for a thousand years!"). (9)



Fort Knox

Although the aliens have conquered Earth, they somehow overlooked Fort Knox. (8)

051200earth-film-review_1.jpg (52220 bytes)

It is the year 3000, the Psychlons have conquered Earth and enslaved most of its surviving humans, and their motive for coming billions of miles is the good, old, dumb one: gold. (8)

Why such an advanced alien race would place a high value on gold is one of a myriad of questions best left unasked. (5)

Then Jonnie leads a revolt by a.) the superior glow of his hair, and b.) manipulating Terl's lust for gold. Although the aliens have conquered Earth, they somehow overlooked Fort Knox, which still has loads of the stuff. Jonnie finds it, presto. (8)

Jonnie flies an alien jet to Kentucky to a place he's read about where the gold has already been mined. We call it "Fort Knox." Conveniently, some stupid human eons ago had left the vault open and, somehow, the aliens had not already raided the joint. (39)



Alien I.Q.

If Terl and his deputy are representative of Psychlo strategy, it would seem a lucky accident they even found Earth to begin with. (49)

battlefield.jpg (8862 bytes)

After a thousand years of occupation, we're supposed to believe this technologically advanced, supremely crafty and ruthlessly efficient race is still holing up in the decaying remains of human civilization? These guys can't even fit through a doorway! (23)

They certainly don't seem to have advanced enough technology to provide decent dental care. (17)

If the Psychlos are so damn smart, how come they never learned the humans' language? (If nothing else, the textbooks on dentistry might have been helpful.) Why are they vulnerable to a rebellion by a few dozen "Easy Rider" freakazoids with centuries-old jet fighters? (31)

They're also not very bright. They can't be -- the plot depends on the most ludicrous decisions and senseless actions ever made by a thinking race. (23)

All I can say about that is, if we were overrun by these quarrelsome bozos with their rotten teeth, platform shoes, Peter Tosh wigs and samurai armor, it doesn't say much for human intelligence or fortitude. (31)


The Content

The Dialogs

I had a hard time figuring out how they could have possibly developed technology advanced enough to defeat Earth in the nine minutes

be-3.jpg (29904 bytes)

After about ten minutes of dialogue, it became apparent that Battlefield Earth was never going to be good, but I assumed John Travolta in platform shoes and dreadlocks would at least sustain me through to the end. (15)

How do you convey the stupidity of a movie in which Travolta's over-the-top arch-villain belts out insults like "Ratbrain!" and dialogue like, "Stupid Humans! HA HA HA HA HA!!!"? (44)

The Psychlo aliens are so absurdly stupid, I had a hard time figuring out how they could have possibly developed technology advanced enough to defeat Earth in the nine minutes Terl claims it took. … In one scene, Terl observes some starving humans eating a raw rat. He deduces that raw rat must be their "favorite food" and that they are "celebrating". (17)




Aiding and abetting the risibility of the whole enterprise is the script, which seems to assume that many of the film's viewers may be unable to read. (6

The movie actually starts with a subtitle that reads "Man is an endangered species," a line repeated more than once. Any time a derelict 20th-century building appears, we are treated to a close-up shot of a sign that tells us what the building is, before the characters enter it and either say out loud what the building is, or demonstrate by some other means. And not only is a flight simulator clearly labeled "flight simulator" on the outside, but Jonnie is also required to point to it and say "Teach us to fly." (6)



The Message

They can take our lives, but they'll never take our freeeedommmm! (6)

be-4.jpg (31915 bytes)

The movie's stupidity is on such a grand scale that there simply isn't enough space to list all the asinine moments. But permit me to name a few: Terl randomly handing Jonnie Goodboy a book in Denver's public library (looking pretty good after 1,000 years of neglect), challenging him to find something in it that will help him win his freedom. Jonnie Goodboy blows the dust off the book and it's ... the Declaration of Independence! (3)

Before long, Jonnie is rallying the man-animals, telling his fellow prisoners that "they can take our lives, but they'll never take our freeeedommmm!" Sorry, wrong movie, but same idea. Same costumes, too. Characters who were actually Scottish in the book have mysteriously become wild men of Denver, who just happen to be dressed and face-painted like Braveheart. (6)

Every 15 minutes or so, without fail, he stops to shake his braided locks inslow-motion, then delivers an anti-slavery sermon that starts quietly and ends in impassioned shouting straight from Braveheart 101, as the score gets all dramatic and indicates that we should have tears in our eyes at this point. And we do. But not because it's a moving scene. (6)

There's also the time when the film's lone human female tells Jonnie Goodboy: "I really don't believe in fate. But I always knew this was your destiny." And, yes, she was quivering in her buckskin costume when she said this. (5)

Even notoriously indiscriminating science fiction fans are likely to desert this "Battlefield," whose closest antecedent is not any alien invasion epic, but Kevin Costner's similarly ill-considered vanity project, "The Postman." It told almost exactly the same story of a post-apocalyptic world whose human survivors were roused to rebellion by a simple, solitary hero. And it, too, was under the impression that it was imparting deep messages about freedom and self-realization while just being stupid and boring. (49)


The Act


His mincing mannerisms, girlish giggle and reedy, sing-songy line readings don't exactly inspire terror - Scooby-Doo villains have more depth. (19)

zip2_picture.jpg (19630 bytes)

… the Snidely Whiplash of sci-fi, a laughable villain who would twirl his moustache if he had one. (22)

He laughs maniacally at the end of every third sentence. (14)

This is the kind of bad guy who strokes his beard with long (Lee Press-On?) talons, gloats over the imminent extermination of the human race, then adds, "Hah-hah-hah-hah-hah!" Fu Manchu would roll his eyes. (47)

What makes Terl so annoying is his breaking into laughter all the time. It's a cartoon villainous "BWAAAA-HAHA" type of thing which the people in various comedy troupes use to portray really bad TV shows or cartoons. (26)

… Terl, who's always talking about gaining "leverage" over his foes and who often says bad words like "crap" to show how evil he is. (43)

Despite his respiratory problems, Darth Vader he's not. (32)




Pepper deserves better material (48)

be-2.jpg (24894 bytes)

Pepper, in his first major role, deserves better material. ""Battlefield Earth'' mainly calls for him to sneer, howl and then transform miraculously into the mastermind behind a revolt by a handful of humans against alien oppressors with superior knowledge, firepower and technology. Not even Brando could do anything with that. (48)

[Travolta] is not the only thespian casualty of this Battlefield. Barry Pepper, the ace shooter of Saving Private Ryan and trusty jailer of The Green Mile, dons Tarzan attire and ashes to essay the role of jungle hero Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, but he has the acting range of Cheetah. (25)


The Direction

The Visuals

The director has learned from better films that directors sometimes tilt their cameras, but he has not learned why. (29)

w11batt.jpg (14732 bytes)

As he proved with Masterminds, the worst movie of 1997, Christian likes to keep his camera in constant motion but cares not if it leads anywhere. (25)

Christian even shoots every scene in a weird Dutch angle titled left or right for every frame of the movie! And every scene in the movie ends with a middle wipe -- really. (28)

Director Roger Christian has only one trick up his sleeve. Nearly every frame is shot with the camera sharply angled one way or another, like villain lairs in the old Batman TV series. Good and evil have nothing to do with this technique. Even Jonnie always looks like he's facing downhill. Absolutely no reason exists for such an incessantly annoying maneuver. Or this movie. (42)

The first half of the film is replete with inexplicable, slow-motion action sequences that I thought "The Simpsons" had parodied into extinction. Guess not. (11)

Director Roger Christian favors cutting from one scene when it seems to be only half over to another that seems to be half over already. (30)

As you might guess, logic is not the movie's strong suit. The world created by director Roger Christian makes little sense and the action is presented in a confusing blur that increasingly relies on explosions. (46)



The Soundtrack

The most assaultive soundtrack in cinema history (47)

Visually, Battlefield Earth is a bewildering procession of non sequiturs, held together by the most assaultive soundtrack in cinema history. That is not an overstatement. A horse hitting the ground sounds like a bomb going off. A bomb going off sounds like a planet exploding. A planet exploding sounds like—I'm out of hyperbole. (47)



The Final

The whole mess concludes with a big, loud, obnoxious gun-and-plane battle that had me praying for the end credits. (28)

poster_reviews.jpg (5198 bytes)

The coup de gracelessness comes in Roger Christian's direction. The final battle is the most incoherent I've seen in months; it makes the conflicts in "Gladiator" look as carefully mapped out as the invasion of Normandy. (2)

A rebellion ensues, as does a relentless supporting performance by flying debris, which, after so many explosions, gave me a headache and invaded the camera frame enough to prevent me from keeping track of which character with hair extensions was running through the underlit production design. (24)

The movie makes no attempt to present even the appearance of an orderly plot with plausible details - and I gave up caring. It just flays about in ear-splitting sound and flashing light, as well as Elia Cmiral's screechingly ominous score, for about two hours until some big things blow up and the good guys win. (12)

But worse than the nit-pick details, director Roger Christian, who evidently never met a camera set-up he couldn't tilt, commits an unpardonable sin: He can't even maintain a cohesive sense of action or place. I lost track during the final half hour even where the fighting was, or who was trying to shoot whom. It's a mess. (40)

Unfortunately, by the time the final 'battle' rolls around, what should have been a gleeful exercise in camp stupidity seems tedious and anti-climactic, the final insult in a movie so wantonly moronic that it defies description. (38)


The Conclusion

The Pet Film

This movie is a demonstration of the danger of being rich and powerful enough to get a movie made. (4)

story.gif (18585 bytes)

Now, two decades later, we have "Battleship Earth" which, visually, doesn't miss a beat between 1981 and 1983. It's set in the future, but looks like the queasily retrograde, apocalyptic aftermath of John Carpenter's two "Escape From ....." movies. The aliens kill with big clunky guns that look like drainpipes and wear bulky uniforms from the Michael Jackson Gestapo collection. You'd think a full millennium from now, aliens would be killing with their Palm PDAs, picking up their weapons of mass destruction at Staples without having to worry about whether the camera's crooked. (24)

Well, Travolta has done it, and the result is one ugly-looking hunk of junk, a low-grade helping of sci-fi that lacks a coherently expressed story or compelling action. (46)

While many of those films worked quite well in the past in portraying a post apocalyptic future, and this one has some of the same potential, it immediately starts off bad and becomes progressively worse and preposterously stupid the further along it proceeds. (9)

Story Ever Told -- Battlefield Earth resembles nothing so much as what a bunch of ten-year-olds would create if given some Star Wars knock-off action figures, a video camera, and heavy pharmaceuticals. (15)



What was he thinking

If "Gladiator" is the past and this film is the future, we are truly a doomed race. (8)

battlefieldsmurf.jpg (51213 bytes)

It's an embarrassing performance that begs the question, "What was he thinking?" But that at least gives the audience something to ponder while this scenario--it can hardly be called a plot-- rumbles on. (33)

I watched it in mounting gloom, realizing I was witnessing something historic, a film that for decades to come will be the punch line of jokes about bad movies. (29)

Battlefield Earth" doesn't just pass away. It dies. It swigs the Ebola virus as mouthwash during its first turgid, apocalyptic, Planet-of-the-Apes-pilfered minutes, then spends two hours convulsing and frothing on screen until you want to stuff a pillow in its mouth and say: Enough already. (40)

This is sci-fi at its worst: a bloated production design, wasted special effects, a simplistic yet almost impossibly convoluted story and some of the worst acting this side of a Norm MacDonald-David Spade after-school special. (40)

It could be renamed Ed Wood's Planet of the Apes if that title didn't promise more cheesy fun than the movie actually delivers. (47)

If "Gladiator" is the past and this film is the future, we are truly a doomed race. (8)

Man is an endangered species," announces one of the titles at the beginning of the sci-fi lump "Battlefield Earth." And after about 20 minutes of this amateurish picture, extinction doesn't seem like such a bad idea. (34)

There is a moment here when the Psychlos' entire planet (home office and all) is blown to smithereens, without the slightest impact on any member of the audience (or, for that matter, the cast). If the film had been destroyed in a similar cataclysm, there might have been a standing ovation. (29)
