Battlefield Earth (also referred to as Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000) is a 2000 American dystopian science fiction action film based upon the first half of L. Ron Hubbard's 1982 novel of the same name. Directed by Roger Christian and starring John Travolta, Barry Pepper, and Forest Whitaker, the film depicts an Earth that has been under the rule of the alien Psychlos for 1,000 years and tells the story of the rebellion that develops when the Psychlos attempt to use the surviving humans as gold miners

Critical reaction[edit]

  • The plot depends on the most ludicrous decisions and senseless actions ever made by a thinking race."
  • ...a picture that will be hailed without controversy as the worst of its kind ever made."
  • taking a bus trip with someone who has needed a bath for a long time... something historic, a film that for decades to come will be the punch line of jokes about bad movies.
  • ...breathtakingly awful in concept and execution... trite, befogged and dorky... glowering, humorless, clumsily rendered."
  • ...even by Hollywood's titanic standards, 'Battlefield Earth' stands out as an example of blind hubris and folly... how could such a movie happen?
    • Sharon Waxman, Washington Post
