AllMusic Review by

About as subtle as a Jerry Bruckheimer action sequence, composer Brian Tyler's score for the Aliens vs. Marines pre-summer blockbuster Battle: Los Angeles successfully walks the line between fist-pumping popcorn romp bombast and painfully serious military melodrama. Tyler, who has honed his craft on similarly themed flicks like Constantine, Alien vs. Predator: Requiem, and Sylvester Stallone's 2008 Rambo reboot, treats the subject matter like dogma, resulting in a highly entertaining, old-fashioned orchestral soundtrack that should appeal to fans of Hans Zimmer, John Powell, and Harry Gregson-Williams.
