Plenty of promise that just fails to deliver. The acting is terrible, the story moronic, and the thing you pay to see, the US Navy unleashing hell on aliens, is limited to small skirmishes with a couple of ships. Liam Neeson is in this for like 5 minutes total screen time. Honestly, the best thing about this was Rihanna's performance. She was kicking ass and takin names.

Ridiculous but fun, tried to outdo Michael Bay and succeeded with better editing, slightly better script and less shit humour /fascism. Although... We totally started it...

About as dumb as one might expect from a movie mixing board game dynamics with an alien invasion flick, Battleship founders when it comes to characterization or telling a story that makes even a modicum of sense. However, there is some fun to be had in the film's suitably ludicrously explosive finale, even if you need to wade through a considerable amount of flotsam to get there.

Not a cliche knowingly missed, with a well used and familiar plot line is saved for fans of action movies by a fast paced and well constructed series of set pieces leading to the inevitable conclusion!

battleship isnt the best movie out there , it is extremmely long to get a predictable ending a la independence day. if the special effects were good, some character had no place in the story. my guess is the studio didn't want to offend any nation by putting them against one another so they got aliens instead. if some shots were pretty cool to watch, there was definitly a few moments when I asked myself what they were doing. overall , not a bad movie considering the source material... it could have been A lot worst.

Manages to somehow tread just on the wrong side of being so bad to be ironically good: instead it's just really bad :-(

Totally enjoyed this movie and surprised to see quality acting, realistic and believable from the cast with many having little or no experience. Am I a less demanding, no, far from it. I appreciated the subtle references to the game. A battleship that manoeuvres like a sports car, well it just made it fun. Very good acting does not always require the heavy overplayed drama, it requires believability in what ever situation the character is in and this entire cast accomplished just that. Loved the tomboy portrayal from Rihanna, and Brooklyn Decker's 'not-a-softy' character. Taylor Kitsch nails it as a fearless but not too sure of himself warrior who doesn't give up. Tadanoubu Asano believable. Hamish Linklator's character I'm afraid truly portrayed how most of us would be in that situation, bravo. Jesse Plemons was spot on as a young seaman who has never seen battle. Bravo

While the beginning was hard to understand in correlation to the whole movie, the film was great and had me at the edge of my seat.

I am mystified how this movie got bad reviews and Pacific Rim good reviews.

Anyway... Battleship had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I cared about the characters. Good humor. Gorgeous photography. Great acting. Great writing. Many characters whose stories I cared about, most involving character growth.

There were a couple plausibility problems, but I don't hold that against them. The aliens kill everybody... except those they don't consider a threat. The aliens have star-spanning technology... and ships that must move by LEAPING from spot to spot in the water. I get that this was a nod to the board game, but come on. This is the reason it got four stars instead of five.

It's a great movie. Go see it. You'll like it.
