What does John Travolta think of Battlefield Earth?

With a 3% Rotten Tomato rating, the 2000 film Battlefield Earth is often considered one of the worst movies ever made. The film even swept the 2000 Golden Raspberry Awards and received seven “Razzies”, including Worst Movie of the Year, Worst Actor (John Travolta), Worst Supporting Actor (Barry Pepper), Worst Supporting Actress (Preston), Worst Director (Roger Christian), Worst Screenplay (Mandell and Shapiro) and Worst Screen Couple (Travolta and “anyone sharing the screen with him”). Have a look to see what we are talking about…

14 years later The Daily Beast caught up with John Travolta to get his thoughts on his L. Ron Hubbard classic. And turns out…he still thinks it’s a good movie. “No way, are you kidding?” Travolta said. “Why would I ever regret that? I had the power to do whatever I wanted, and I chose to do a book that I thought was worthy of making into a movie. [Battlefield Earth is] a beautiful film. It’s a good movie.”
