  • 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.

  • Not bad: it prevented me from sleeping in the plane last year. Forgetting about the storyline? Not. The Coen brothers and Sofia Coppola are still the masters at it. This is just plain old entertainment and probably the reason why Rihanna now favours ultra-short hair. Enjoy!
