In the year 3000, humanity is no match for the Psychlos, a greedy, manipulative race on a quest for ultimate profit. Led by the seductive and powerful Terl, the Psychlos are stripping Earth of its resources, using the broken remnants of humanity as slaves. What is left of the human race has reverted to a primitive state, believing the invaders to be demons and technology to be evil. After humanity has all but given up any hope of freeing themselves from alien oppression, a young man named Tyler decides to leave his desolate home high in the Rocky Mountains to discover the truth, whereupon he is captured and enslaved. It is then that he decides to fight back, leading his fellow man in one final struggle for freedom.
It's the year 3000 A.D.; the Earth is lost to the alien race of Psychlos. Humanity is enslaved by these gold-thirsty tyrants, whom are unaware that their 'man-animals' are about to ignite the rebellion of a lifetime.
What a let down. I saw the trailer for this movie and went right out and bought the book. The book was fantastic. The movie is an insult to this classic work of science fiction and to the author. I guess thats what you get when you try to condense a 1000+ page story into a two hour movie. I should just stop expecting adaptations of books to be anything as good as the original story. This would have been much better off being made into a made for TV mini series.
Please, do yourself a favor and do not waste any of your time or money on this horror of a movie. This was not just a bad movie, it was a bad bad movie. Some bad movies such as Deep Blue Sea were at least so absurd that they were funny. Some bad movies such as pretty much any John Woo film at least have some overblown, yet somewhat entertaining action scenes. In fact, I can't think of any movie I've seen that didn't have at least one redeeming feature. That is, until I think of this one.
I could give some reasons why this movie sucked, such how it didn't have a plot, how it had one-dimensional characters, and how it failed to capture my attention at all. However, this has all been said in detail by other users. I will just say this. Do not watch this movie. In fact, encourage others not to watch this movie as well. Believe me, you will be doing yourself a favor.
Will this become a cult classic as someone else suggested? Well, I've noticed a pattern associated with the so-called "cult classic". They all have something about them that appeals to someone out here. This movie did not have anything good about it whatsoever, and I cannot imagine one person who could have watched it and actually enjoyed it. The only danger in seeing this film is in busting a gut at its unintentional hilarity. Yes, Battlefield Earth is loosely based on the novel of the same title by author and founder of Scientology L. Ron Hubbard. Originally intended to be a two-part move, Battlefield Earth depicts the first half of the novel. A sequel was intended to be made shortly after, but these plans never occurred. No. While the author of the novel Battlefield Earth, L. Ron Hubbard, is also the founder of the Church of Scientology, little or no Scientologist views are presented in the book. John Travolta was intent on making this film as both a follower of L.Ron Hubbard and as a fan of the source material. However, the film focuses on the science fiction aspects of the original novel, and does not intentionally promote any religious agenda. Slight similarities between themes of the novel and film and teachings of Scientology do exist, but the connection is more incidental than anything else. Several things. The book was long and verbose, and was difficult to condense into a two-hour movie; in fact, only the first half was filmed, with the second intended to be the sequel. The pulp science-fiction plot was considered to be clunky and outdated, and despite John Travolta's enthusiasm for the film, many studios were unwilling to finance the movie.
Upon release, the film received a critical drubbing, with common criticisms such as the poor acting, an outrageous and inconsistent plot, and a baffling visual style employed by the director (which included an excessive use of slow-motion and Dutch angles). This led to poor word of mouth before and after the release. In addition, the often poorly portrayed image of Scientology instantly tainted public perception, and the motives behind making this movie based on a novel by Scientology's founder L. Ron Hubbard seemed to overwhelm viewer objectivity.
Lastly, production company Franchise Pictures was sued in 2004 by its German investors when it was discovered that it had been inflating film budgets, including that of Battlefield Earth. Franchise Pictures was forced to pay $121 million in damages and ultimately went bankrupt as a result.
The British Version misses a headbutt. Approx 2 seconds are cut. Originally, there were plans to make a sequel to Battlefield Earth, since the movie covers roughly half of the novel of the same title. Shortly after Battlefield Earth was released in 2000, Travolta indicated he would move forward with a sequel. However, a year later he stated that a sequel was not in the works. Because of the poor reception that Battlefield Earth received, coupled with the collapse of Franchise Pictures, plans for a sequel failed to gain any serious traction and were abandoned. a5c7b9f00b
