‘Battlefield Earth’ Movie Summary
It’s the year 3000 AD, and The Psychlos, a race of giant alien beings savagely captured the Earth. For a millennium, Psychlos imprisoned members of the human race for slave labor. The epicenter of their operations is a glass-domed Human Processing Center in Denver, Colorado.
Security Chief Terl is the Psychlo in charge of their Earth base. Terl, a narcissistic sociopath, is permanently assigned to Earth after an incident with the daughter of a Psychlo senator. In order to work his way back into the good graces of the government on Psychlo, Terl and his deputy, Ker, implement an operation to retrieve gold from local mines where the radioactive gases are combustible with the air Psychlos breathe.
Meanwhile, in the nearby Rocky Mountains, tribes of primordial humans live in hiding from “demons” they’ve never actually seen. Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, the bravest and noblest of his tribe, decides it is time to leave his clan behind and explore the surrounding lands. Not far into his journey, Terl’s soldiers capture Jonnie, and bring him to the prison facility.read full summary
