  • I find it hilariously ironic that a board game based on strategy and thinking is the total opposite of that when it spawns a feature film. To no surprise though, “Battleship” offers very little story to compensate this. Its character index is made up of war movie stereotypes and idiotic jackasses who shouldn’t be anywhere near a naval convoy. The main character, Alex Hopper (played by Taylor Kitsch) may go through some change, but it’s completely unbelievable. How a lust-smitten burrito thief is able to transform into a military hero in a matter of seconds defies all comprehension. Oh, and Rihanna’s in the movie too. I don’t know why that’s a selling point, but apparently it is. Lo and behold, she does next to nothing and exists simply so the studio could advertise her established name. The special effects are fine and reflect the (wasted) $220 million budget, and that’s just it. Things explode, everything looks polished and nobody cares at all.

  • Aliens sneak attack Pearl Harbor; Waster yank & sly Jap unite, use antique battleship, geriatric crew & Sun Tzu strategy to kick some serious alien ass. Spunky Rihanna sizzles in uniform. Happy ending—guy saves world & gets his gal. Americans, bring your flags and tissues; rest of world, your barf bags.

  • Now I have a new movie to add to my deadly 60. In deadly I mean deadly boring and an hour of my life I will never get back. I would rather play the game battleship than watch this movie. It was so bad I couldn't even finish watching it nor could my son and he is not that fussy.

  • The best thing about this movie was Taylor Kitsch.

  • I really enjoyed this movie it was like a WWII naval battle between aliens and mankind. The action signs were very good and there was plenty of action.
