    I just fancied some no brainer nonsense action and this just about fit the bill. The action is decent, though the alien design seemed like not much though was put into it. The ship did look decent though. The dialogue is beyond dreadful and many sentences I found I was able to finish after hearing only two or three words. Rhianna does her best Michelle Rodriguez impression and then America wins. Just about as expected.

    Ich würde sagen, da hat versucht etwas episches zu transportieren, aber die Last war zu schwer. Dass ich diesen Film jetzt nicht unterirdisch finde, liegt wohl an der Tatsache, dass ich nicht viel erwartet hatte und doch ein wenig bekam. Die Rolle von Rehanna ging mir noch ein wenig auf den Keks.

    Zweieinhalb Sterne für leicht unter dem Durchschnitt.

    As if adapting a feature film from a board game wasn't enough, "Battleship" still decides to torture it's audience with wooden acting, horrible writing, and ugly visuals. Don't even think about saying it's just mindless popcorn entertainment, because that argument is pure bullshit. Just because a movie is made purely for popcorn entertainment, that doesn't mean it can't be smart or entertaining. I'd rather sit through an entire game of Battleship for 3 hours.

    There are films, and then there is Battleship. 131 minutes of explosions, tedious exposition, and lots and lots of yelling. The problem (or at least one of the problems) with Battleship, isn't that it's mindlessly stupid (though it is), or that it contains poor acting (though it does), but that it's profoundly boring. There are times when I nearly dozed off - despite seeing this in the early afternoon after a full night of sleep - and times when I…

    The unintentional hit comedy of the 2012 year. It's like what you would get if you gave the Asylum studios a large budget to make a film.

    3.5 stars for Battleship?
    Yep. Cos I liked it just that little bit more than I expected to. I had low expectations.
    But turns out it's just the kind of Hollywood action blockbuster fair that I intended to watch; which doesn't include super heroes, transformers with bad dialogue or a buddy cop duo with terrible chemistry.
    This is a movie with aliens that aren't too fantastical. It's a movie where shit gets blown up, and blows up well. The visuals…

    naval war manoeuvres' around hawaii turn into a life and death situation when a fleet of alien spacecraft land. an advance force for an invasion.

    review
    slow to start, the first 45 minutes plod on getting to know the characters.
    then the aliens splash down and the action begins.
    effects top notch, action, fast and furious.

    very reminiscent of transformers and the gung ho flag waving attitude of independence day.
    if you can get past the silly nonsense this movie…

    Not a very well conceived project, but almost charmingly earnest in its deployment of its incredibly blunt adaptations. The plotting is a mess, dedicating large swaths of time to redundant character beats and loose narrative strands. Bird seems to have a comprehension of the aesthetics of blockbusters at this scale - a dash of Abramsian/Spielbergian lens flare here, some Baysean camera swoops there - but lacks the mechanics to execute them to the same degree as those folks.

    Despite this,…
