That's right, my fellow committed, today marks the official DVD release of the latest Asylum production, the sci-fi war-epic Battle of Los Angeles, written and directed by Mark Atkins and starring Kel Mitchel and Nia Peeples, among many talented others (Ed Deruiter and Gerald Webb, I'm looking at y'all). The film debuted on SyFy last, last weekend to a whopping 2.18 million viewers, and now it's available at Netflix, Redbox, of course your local independent video store, and for purchase online. I really liked this one, thought it was action-packed while simultaneously character-driven, adorned with great performances, excellent effects and taut, succinct direction. Do yourself a favor and lay hands on this guy as soon as possible.
