    Here's the thing: This didn't have to be awful. There's enough wit present in segments of the movie, and the cast is generally strong enough to carry the goofier aspect. Hell, the sequence where they basically play Battleship with the aliens is actually pretty fun.

    But holy God, the movie is a tonal mess, the pacing is awful, the character beats are telegraphed and never quite come through... this is a movie that had no idea what it wanted to do or say.

    1/2 a star because the pegs the aliens shoot are shaped like the pegs in the board game of the same name.

    Otherwise wholly unremarkable.

    I didn't make it to the end.

    "This could be like Columbus and the Indians," a nerdy radio astronomer worries. "Except we're the Indians." From a powerful transmission facility in Hawaii, he's supervised the transmission of a signal to the Earth-like Planet G in another galaxy, and in no time at all, aliens come calling. Considering that they arrive in weeks, they must have discovered faster-than-light speeds, so it's a little strange that when they arrive they're strictly analog. Their vast warships splash down in the Pacific…

    Totally fucking ridiculous. Taylor Kitsch needs to fire his agent.

    Also, Rihanna cannot act, as expected.

    I've seen this about 5 times now and missed at least the first 20 minutes every single time. I can only assume that the really bad parts are at the beginning because what I've seen is so much better than "Pacific Rim". Sure, it's a little clichéd but then Pac Rim ain't exactly avant garde. The best part about Battleship as compared to Pac Rim is that the people actually have conversations instead of declarations.

    Leaving Pac Rim aside, I…

    What the hell is Tadanobu Asano doing in this thing?

    Seriously awful, and from the get-go. It has the worst beginning of any blockbuster I've ever seen - burrito, anyone? A lazy excuse for a blockbuster.

    Special effects aren't bad, but the plot is ludicrous, which isn't a surprise considering a board game was the inspiration. The movie's finale involving the historic USS Missouri is actually pretty cool, but you have to suffer through the rest of the film to get to it.

    Taylor Kitsch's agent needs to pick better…

    this movie made us so stupid that by the time they actually started playing battleship, it took us 5 minutes to realize it.

    Unless you expect it to physically assault you, you're expectations are too high. Shockingly and disgustingly bad in everything but VFX.

    Battleship - You sunk my career... pretty much sums up everyone in this movie except for Liam Neeson.

    Worth it for the old men montage set to ACDC's "Thunderstruck."
