Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 3%
Battlefield Earth was directed by Roger Christian, and written by J.D. Shapiro and Corey Mandell.
This film was envisioned as Schindler’s List in Space, and it lacks all the historicity and emotional depth, but is almost as depressing in a sense. Of course, the film is bursting at the seams with everything from guacamole troughs to rat snacks and harrier jets! Just like Schindler’s List!
Travolta went on record to say this movie was like Star Wars, but better.
