Any movie based on Battleship that doesn't at least throw in a PT boat isn't worthy of the name.

... it sounds incredibly dumb -- and it is, but not without a little fun.

I am a sucker for these kinds of big, dumb action movies (I liked "John Carter" and "The Green Lantern" too), particularly if they have a good deal of science fiction in them, and this one does.

Liam Neeson fans, beware: it's the old bait and switch tactic as he has barely more than a cameo role in this alien invasion saga.

What's next? Lincoln Logs vs Tinkertoys?

The best part of Battleship's lackluster opening is that it immediately puts other game-based projects into turnaround: Easy Bake Oven: Apocalypse and My Pretty Pony: Rise of the Lycans, I'm talking to you.

Peter Berg delivers his love letter to the military in a movie disguised as an Alien Invasion board game.

The CGI looks as good as it ought to given the criminally large budget, but the action is perfunctory and unimaginative.

Once the special effects take over, Berg has little room to assert his personality (or tell a story, for that matter), and the movie feels like a chore.

A clangy, anchors-aweigh bombast of special-effects whoosh and wallop, ka-booming explosions and dumb action-movie dialogue.

Full of action and good special effects, but cheesy dialogue and a throw away plot eventually sink it.

It's one of the loudest , most aurally assaultive films I've ever seen. Some audience members will see that as a positive.

It's fun in sporadic bursts, but never memorable.

... finally exercises its self-awareness bone and has a little fun before the credits roll... worth sneaking into the ending after you see The Avengers again.

A messy mishmash of action movie clichés lost at sea (J14-Hit!)

Battleship is a loud lobotomy.

Goes about its thought-free blow-s**t-up business in such a bizarre and absurd manner that to simply dismiss it as laughably awful is to shortchange how oddly captivating its off-the-charts 'what-the-f**k?' quality often is.

I never thought I'd be saying this, but I enjoyed it.
