The Rufus Project Redeeming Features Cast: Battlefield Earth (2000)

Kristian and Trevor take on the challenge of redeeming Battlefield Earth from 2000.  Is it a case of an actor battling to break out of his stereotype, or is it a battle just to watch the movie?

Does John Travolta really believe in the story that much?  Does Johnny’s hair need its own credit?  Is there meant to be a love interest?  Should the alien really give the human all the knowledge he needs to escape?  Is this movie redeemable?

Listen on and find out!

Did we miss any redeeming features?  Do you think we were too generous or unfair?  Do you have a suggestion, or a challenge, for us to take on in the future?  Then get in touch with us by either leaving a comment on our homepageFacebook or Twitter, or email us at
