Battle has its moments but it's largely a mess and a very, very distant fifth among the original films.
For what it's worth, the novelization of Battle
by David Gerrold is much more coherent than the movie, which appears to have been badly edited. The novel fleshes out the various plotlines more, possibly incorporating scenes from the original script.
As it happened, I read the novelization before I saw the movie, and was disappointed that the movie wasn't more like the book!
