Bad movie
Saw it. Waste of money. Wish I could get my 18 Euros back. It's so bad, that after 15 minutes, I was rolling my eyes. The trailer deceived me and I wish I hadn't gone to see it.

The acting is bad. Well, the only good ones were Liam Neeson, Tadanobu Asano and Alexander Skarsgård. But that's about it. The rest is amateur acting. Not to mention Rihanna, who had crappy lines and I heard way too much about her being the best part of the movie. No.

(this could be a spoiler) The best part were the Aliens and after the first "battle", I really just wanted the Aliens to win.

I feel like the people on here that are praising the movie, were paid to do so.

Just... wait for the DVD if you're really excited to see it. But if you want to be fed crap, then... please... go and waste your money.

Worth the time to watch
Although it is December 2013, I thoroughly enjoy watching this movie. We MUST REMEMBER this is FICTION!!!! Also it based upon a game that Hasbro still sells. This movie provides imagination with the fiction, generated interest in a strategic game - actually challenges a child to use their imagination. Was some of it corny? Yes. But, it was a fun movie. And the Razzies that went to members of the cast, Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker, Liam, well all I can say is that the person(s) that nominated for Razzies just missed it. I enjoyed seeing Rihanna in the role she played. ALL characters were very well casted. Wouldn't have changed anything. Thanks to the cast and crew of the movie Battleship!

formulaic but fun in spite Rihanna
This film is formulaic to the core, but it still manages to provide great fun.

If you're looking for thought-provoking material, avoid it. If you just wanna have fun, then go for it. In that sense, this film is a success in spite of horrific dialogues and Rihanna's Julliard performance. The love interest is stupid and unnecessary, but who's ever heard of this type of film without a love interest. I'm guessing the NY stock exchange would crash if there were no love interest. We, the audience, being stupid and all, need to be aware that the Hero is fighting not only for sheer survival but also for the hot blonde waiting on the island (who is also, in her own blond way, contributing to the humanity's fight for survival). God, just typing this makes me wanna puke.

On the other hand, I really liked each and every action scene. I know, it's packed with CGI but it's interesting, dynamic, and has a nice flow to it. Yeah, it's no Friday Night Lights, but after five days at the office, this is just the thing I needed to unwind. :) Btw, Rihanna... I don't know what she had to do to be made part of this film. I don't know if she slept with the director, or invested a fortune into the film, but giving her a talking role... that remains one of the greatest mysteries of the universe.

Definition of a guilty pleasure
Heaven help me! I liked this movie, now I am going to be one of the few who did. As you can see from the other reviews a lot of people didn't like this movie, so why did I?

1. I came in with low expectations - I was expecting something horrible, boring, long and pointless, but despite myself I liked it, I laughed at the jokes, I connected with the actors (yes, Rihanna too), I was excited by the action and while clichés the plot held my interest

2. The actors did a good job with what they were given - Taylor Kitsch did a good job, Rihanna wasn't that bad, I dare say good, in her role. She was there, she didn't try to chew the scenery, she did her job as an actor/secondary character and it didn't bother me. I give her kudos

3. lost in translation? - you try to make a game into a movie and you want to put parts of them game in it? Not easy, a little cheesy? Of course, but fun? Yes, fun, enjoyable, and in the end it was a part of the story that wasn't as forced as it could have been.

So in conclusion, "Battleship" is a fun, corny, typical summer movie that I like but as you see a lot of people didn't. I think it is a guilty pleasure, something to be enjoyed by the few but annoyed by the rest. In the end I can only suggest this - go in with low expectations, expect a little over the top patriotism like in "Act of Valor" ( but not so heavy), and don't think about it. The movie is not without its flaws or questionable logic, but as it was said so well in another movie - "I suggest you don't think about it and just enjoy the ride"

Battleship *SPOILER*
This is one of the worst movies iv'e ever seen! Yeah, i know what some of you are thinking now "Well, it can't be that bad...can it?". And to answer that question yes...it's that bad. I didn't go in with any expectations on the acting, the characters or the story all i was hoping for was a good action loaded movie with cool effects that you just could just turn of your brain to and enjoy. Well, it is cool effects and some cool action scenes but that's all. The only thing i didn't like about the CGI was that it looked to much like transformers which shouldn't be a let down since those movies have great CGI, but i didn't want it to look like another transformers movie i wanted it to have an own stile with new CGI that we haven't seen before but no it didn't. And the story was as expected very thin and very boring, but the thing that disturbed me the most was that you never got to know why the aliens attacked earth! They had a whole planet with the same conditions as earth so why would they attack us? I don't know, so my conclusion (becuse the movie is based on a board game...) is that they just went to earth to play a real match in battleship...and then we have the characters. If anyone of those people would have been in the real navy...we would all be dead by now. Everybody is either jerks or idiots or both. It felt like non of them knew what the hell they where doing on the ships. But the worst part is that in some scenes threw out the movie some of the characters seemed to have received super powers! They where climbing up on 90 degrees angles, super sight, telerportation (those old dude's most have done that when they all showed up on that battleship all of a sudden) and unbreakable legs. The only thing i liked with this movie was the look on the aliens...they actually looked like they where intelligent enough to get to earth and take over it. Conclusion, this movie is only a good time when you are drunk with your friends so you just can laugh at all the bad things that's going on in it and the fact that it cost 200 million dollars to do and it flopped.

chicken burrito and kentucky fried chicken
This is my first ever review on IMDb and after watching this movie a few hours ago I was compelled to register on IMDb so I could play the Battleship guessing game with you (similar to the original Battleship, only that it's not).

Q1: How does a radio telescopes work? Do they

A - Detect and collect data on radio sources

B - Shoot some type of visible light laser beam to another solar system in the hope to communicate with aliens?

Answer: B - It's hard for someone to imagine how a signal is sent.

Q2: What would be the best way for an alien ship to travel once on earth?

A - Fly

B - Hop on the water (in one direction) like a cross between a water strider and a frog

Answer: B - Also staying true to their weapons system which only work line of sight.

Q3: Once the alien destruction robots are launched to attack and weaken the human defense, do they

A - Destroy 20 unarmed helicopters

B - Ruin a field where kids are playing baseball

C - Destroy the only remaining docked Battleship equipped with Harpoon and Tomahawk missiles

D - Attack some concrete pillars holding up a section of a freeway

Answer: A,B,D - Who would ever think that the USS Missouri had a better chance of attacking the aliens as opposed to a freeway.

Q4: Your a bad-ass alien who traveled ten's of light years to take over another planet, what do you bring as a personal weapon?

A - A ray guy than can evaporate anything in sight

B - Any other type of projectile weapon

C - A knife that looks like a screwdriver

Answer: C - The only weakness being that it takes this weapon 20 seconds to warm up, giving a double leg amputee enough time to walk up to the armored alien kick-box it in the head and take off it's helmet.

Q5: The humans have fired a tomahawk missile at your alien ship. What do you do?

A - Try to shoot it down with your own weapons

B - Try to maneuver your ship out of the way

C - Have your alien ship hop directly into the missile

Answer: C - Oh yes that's right the alien ship is only equipped with grenades and it can only move in the direction it is facing.

Q6: Your building an alien war ship that will be used to take over a planet. What material do you use to protect the bridge?

A - A type of super strong metal

B - Glass

Answer: B - Taking over a planet is not so easy when a few sniper rifle rounds breaches the hull on the bridge and kills the alien commander.

If you got 0% then watch the trailer and save yourself from having your intelligence insulted.

If you got above 1% then steal a chicken burrito, become captain of the navy in a few years and save the planet from an alien invasion by taking commands from an officer 20 ranks below you.

substantially better then I expected
I based my initial opinion on the IMDb score and from the odd critic review when this was released. I watched this last night and was pleasantly surprised. its a lot better then I expected. I wont go into detail about the plot etc as its in the summary. the only actors I knew were Liam Neeson and Rhianna. Rhianna was better then most other singers that attempt acting. I think to put this in perspective I will tell you some of my favourite films as I feel if you also like these you will like battleship: transformers, skyline, matrix, avatar, lethal weapon, die-hard, van damme films, terminator 2. (I couldn't list them all. :-) ) ignore the fact the enemy look like transformer. I think the makers have done well turning a very old, guesswork boardgame into a pretty decent movie.

Very good film
I honestly thought the movie was pretty good. I say the reason why this movie became well known is due to the fact, Rihanna is in it. She seems to have been very good at acting as she never was involved in the movie industry before! She killed it, lemme tell ya!

I found out so funny yet inspiring plus rewarding that the World War II Veterans helped out the Navy crew to defeat the big tank of an Alien ship. I found it was really meant to a lot of people whose loved ones were involved during the war! The last ship that the Navy had was like Titanic hitting the iceberg, yet it was a bomb that caused it to sink down! I wonder how James Cameron would feel about it being involved in this movie!

Better than Transformers and inspirational to boot
I expected "Battleship" to be unwatchable. Especially when padded with commercials to 3 hours by FX. But all throughout the movie, I kept thinking to myself "Why am I enjoying this so much more than any of the Transformers movies?" The answer is "In Battleship, I didn't know how they were going to get out of the next situation, and I kind of cared, and I wanted to find out." It's that simple.

Yes, the dialog is insanely clichéd and the acting is pretty wooden and there isn't much character development. But there's just enough to keep it compelling, which can't be said for anything from the unholy alliance between Michael Bay and Hasbro. And "Battleship" even has a few clever and funny one-liners amidst all the mayhem.

If it really bothers you that this movie portrays U.S. Navy (and Japanese navy!) sailors as heroes able to adapt and prevail against overwhelming odds, then there's really nothing more to be said to you - except maybe "Don't watch it on FX then, because they are actually airing commercials for the U.S. Navy during the presentation". Oh and, um, it's a science fiction movie based on a board game called "Battleship", did you expect the good guys to be from Amnesty International?

I don't really want to list any spoilers but I also don't want to be blacklisted over "Battleship" so I checked the box anyway. I'll just list a few of the funnier/stranger plot items and then we'll move on to the career-damage check.

I loved the scene where the U.S. Navy losing a pick-up soccer game to the Japanese navy was played out with all the drama of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Classic. And yeah, I know it was for the RIMPAC Cup, but still.

I hope everybody noticed that the alien projectiles are shaped similarly to the pegs in the classic game of "Battleship". Unfortunately, the aliens never learned to take turns - they fire at B4, C7 and D5 at the same time. On the other hand, it is quite noteworthy (and has been noted by others) that the aliens go to great pains to distinguish threats (conveniently highlighted red) from non-threats (conveniently highlighted green). That's also kind of their undoing - could that be the message of this movie, that it's better to shoot first and ask questions later?!? OK, I can see how that might bother some people. Then again, the aliens did shoot first unless you count Taylor Kitsch touching their spaceship as an attack... Kudos to the scriptwriters for the intricate layers of moral ambiguity!

I'm still wondering why, when all of the alien technology was directed at the military, transportation, and urban infrastructure of Hawaii, a bunch of policemen in Jeeps were so focused on getting a couple of hikers off of an isolated mountain. At least they were kind enough to abandon 1/3 of their off-road vehicles at a time when all roads to the mountain had been destroyed.

(Minor spoiler alert 1) The only thing that really disappointed me in this movie was the post-credits bonus scene. I was hoping it would be a teaser for an upcoming movie based on Gnip Gnop.

Career Damage Check:

1. Rihanna - She's still a mega-talented, mega-successful recording artist, and she's been friends with the monster and Eminem since this movie was released, so she'll be fine.

2. Liam Neeson - He spent most of the movie on the outside of an alien force dome, which shielded not only his character but also his career. And during the viewing on FX I saw a commercial for his new, Taken-like, ass-kicking movie, so he'll be fine.

3. Jesse Plemons - Although forced to team up again with his Dillon High School buddy (and box-office albatross) Taylor Kitsch, he will be remembered much more for his role as "Meth Damon" on Breaking Bad, proving that the man has talent and range. So, he'll be fine.

4. Brooklyn Decker - She's fine.

5. Taylor Kitsch - Although this dude will forever be associated with two of the biggest box-office bombs in cinema history, he's quite handsome and ripped, so I imagine he does alright with the ladies, so I'm sure he'll be fine. Besides, since I liked "Battleship" much more than I expected to, I really can't hold this one against him. And since I could never make it more than 20 minutes into "John Carter", despite multiple attempts, I'd say I wasted less time on his duds than on lots of other actors'.

6. Peter MacNicol - I don't remember the last time I saw anyone from "Ally McBeal" on my TV screen, so relatively speaking I guess he's doing better than expected.

Finally, (minor spoiler alert 2), if you did not get at least a little teary-eyed during the scene where all the old-timers stepped up to save the day, then you might be un-American. And yes, there's nothing wrong with being un-American, unless you happen to be a U.S. citizen.

More like Battlesh*t. This movie sunk.
I can't stand this film. Very loosely based off, the guessing game, Battleship from Milton Bradley. Battleship, the movie takes the concept of the game, where players smartly against each other in a classic contest that pits mind against mind, requiring logic, intuition and carefully considered strategy and turns into a dumb rip-off of a Michael Bay's explosion style film. Honestly, the movie would have work better, if the movie was just about the RIMPAC event that the writers put into the film. The Rim of the Pacific War-Exercise make sense, because it puts international ships against each other, in war games simulations. Unfortunately, director Peter Berg thinks the best way for him, to get viewers was to make it, into another generic Alien invasion movie. This isn't the way to make a movie based off a board game, at all. The alien concept has nothing to do with the source material. I really had high hopes for this film. After all, previous board games movies like 1985's Clue & 1995's Jumanji weren't so bad. Instead, the movie focus on really bad characters to carry out, this ill-advised plot. The convoluted story revolves around Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch), a reckless and irresponsible young man whose wild ways consistently disappoint his brother Stone, (Alexander Skarsgård), a respected commander in the U.S. Navy. To avoid prison, for a burrito-stealing related felony, Alex joins the Navy, in hope to turn his life around, impress a girl, Sam (Brooklyn Decker) and his superior, Admiral Shane (Liam Neeson). If this sounds, very familiar, it's basically a badly written first half- version of 2009's Star Trek, taking place on earth. I have nothing against Taylor Kitsch's acting chops, but his character is just annoying and too unlikeable. The whole burrito stealing scene is just thoughtless. I really didn't get it. Was the movie trying really hard to parody, truTV Presents: World's Dumbest Criminals!? I really doubt, that Alex would became a Lt. in the Navy in four years with a criminal record like his. Everything, that Alex was saying, was just too arrogant. Don't get me wrong, I love cocky characters, but there wasn't anything smart with his character being the hero. He's so utterly imbecilic that his character is more like an insult to all the brave Navy men out there, serving our nation. Another insulting character is Petty Officer, Cora 'Weps' Rikes played by singer, Rihanna. Don't get me wrong, Rihanna is a great singer, but I really couldn't get behind, Rihanna's film debut as a hard-as-nails weapons specialist. The reasons why is because how jarring, it was, for me to see her, portray a strong independent badass woman, when in real-life, she's not even close. Not only would she would allow men to beat her up, senseless in real life, but she end up return back to that abusive person, after this film. Rihanna's character also had some really terrible dialogue. Mahalo, motherf*** was a horrible one-liner. The way, it got censor for the PG-13 rating, makes it, even more ear-bleeding. At the same time, I'm really disappointed, by how lackluster, Liam Neeson's role in the film. He's perfect as a Navy Officer, and somebody that the Navy would be prove to have, represented them. Yet the filmmakers doesn't give his character anything badass to do in this film. He's just there to be the angry father character. His daughter, Sam played by swimsuit model, Brooklyn Decker has more to do in this movie, than him. Still, I couldn't really didn't care much of the sub-story of her and the injury Army serviceman, Lieutenant Colonel Mick Canales played by real-life Army veteran, Gregory D. Gadson, going up on the mountain to take out the alien's communication towers. I didn't find it, inspiring. I love, that the movie use real-life veterans, and active-service people as cast extras, but I just wish, they were given, better roles. Sure, the human characters are paper-thin, but I found the aliens to be the worse off. The aliens have the power to create a force-field that's two nautical miles wide and rises more than 300,000 feet in the air to encircle the Navy, but they can't protect their own ships with it against the Navy, nor could have protect their communication spaceship from a harmless satellite. Wow- these aliens are lame and not combat functionality. Not only that, but their weakness is the sunlight. Oh come on! Are they goths? They come from a planet, very similar to ours. The action is disappointing and surprisingly dull. Lots of over-used CGI effects, fake looking flare shots, and quick cuts, make this film not good. For a movie call 'Battleships', technically, there is only one Battleship, use in this film, and that's the USS Missouri. The others, were, technically, 'Destroyers'. I really didn't mind, the USS Missouri, got used, but I really doubt, it will be combat-action. It went to the bounds of unrealistic, right there. The film is such po-faced stoicism and flag-waving jingoism silly, that it impossible to emotionally connect with this film, beyond, laughing at how dumb, it is. The post-credit scene makes it, seem like a sequel will come out, but I really doubt it, due to how badly this movie, score in the box office. It did so bad that Hasbro, the toy company that fund it, nearly went out of business. Overall: the film feels half-baked and barely developed, making for a frustrating film that fails to ever fully engage, and ultimately lacks the brilliant simplicity of the game on which it was based. It's not good. Don't recommended.
