If ever a movie had 'Paid for by the U.S. Navy' written all over it... 'Battleship' is tailored kitsch -- tailored to recruit male teens. Taylor Kitsch does a surprisingly good job of this.

An assault on reason, logic and complex characterisation, but in an enjoyable way, like a slightly less camp dramatisation of the Village People's finest ship-based sing-song.

We should celebrate the explicit nature, the unabashed and unapologetic chutzpah of a film that dares to be stupid, yet does so with so much intelligence.

Battleship is a movie that is enjoyable beyond expectation, but doesn't offer much more than the fast-food-style fun of a summer movie spectacle.

Watch the movie for its spectacle and nothing else.

Believe it or not, no one ever says the game's signature line. So, lets say it here, all together and with enthusiasm, "You sunk my Battleship!"

Battleship is to chicken burritos what The Avengers was to shawarma.

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.

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.

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

The epitome of a summer blockbuster: a dizzying display of derring-do, patriotism and fearlessness in the face of an overwhelming alien invasion on the high seas. And the guy even gets the girl!

I had considerably more fun watching Berg destroy Michael Bay at his own game than watching Joss Whedon try to please everyone in the universe with 'The Avengers.'

Terrific! Fantastic special effects highlight this high-tension film of ordinary mortals who can die if things go wrong in a fight to the finish against aliens.

It's everything that's wrong with modern science fiction and also a lot of fun.

The whole movie feels like Roland Emmerich's sperm and Michael Bay's sperm fertilized an egg Tony Scott cryogenically froze back in 1986, producing a "baby" with qualities of all of its "birth" fathers.

Battleship may be based on the popular Hasbro game, but it's more like Transformers. Only Battleship can claim a better plot. But "better" is always a relative term.

Battleship is a movie where even benign satellite messages sent from NASA to distant worlds are giant laser beams that shoot through space causing lens flares and surround sound action.

the film adds space invaders to the traditional maritime conflict, yet never forgets its humble roots as a board game played with pegs and increasingly educated guesses

Over-the-top sci-fi action with great special effects.
