An immature moron joins the US navy, despite his obvious failings he attains an officer's rank and is given a position of considerable responsibility. He even manages to meet a female moron and the two get together. Aliens attack Earth but because they're morons they attack Earth on the very spot where multi national Naval forces have met up to conduct exercises. The two forces clash and the movie provides the viewer with a special effects extravaganza of blockbuster proportions. The effects are eye popping and the Alien beings look great. The screenplay provides levels of violence for fifteen year olds along with logic and dialogue for five year olds. In the end, the human morons win.

The CGI is excellent but the rest of the film is mainly drivel. The final part is pure hokum - the "old boys" manage to fire up the Missouri's engines in a few minutes despite the ship having been a museum since Vietnam. The museum contains cordite and live shels just as one would expect in a 40 year old museum!. The shot of the crew carriying a 15 inch shell throughout the ship beacause the shell hoists wewre not working any more was pure rubbish - you can not get into a turret that way. At the end the chief moron says to the Admiral "...but I saved the world" I also did not like the peculiar commentary that overlaid most of the action.

Largely ridiculous but quite entertaining film, inspired by a Hasbro naval warfare video game which in turn took quite a bit of its' inspiration from the classic pen and paper game "Battleship." However, rather than being about a battle between human navies this film is a story of a battle against alien invaders.

This review is based on having watched the film at home on Blu-ray. The Blu-Ray disc has some moderately good extras and produced a very clear picture and sound.

The film opens with a prologue set in 2006, when Earth starts to beam a "Hello" radio message to a planet in another solar system, nicknamed "Planet G," which scientists believe would have the necessary conditions for intelligent life. The programme to send the signal is called the "Beacon Project" and the transmitters are based in Hawaii. Cut to a bar in Hawaii, where two brothers, Stone and Alex Hopper, (Alexander Skarsgrd and Taylor Kitch respectively) are drinking to celebrate the birthday of the younger brother, Alex.

An exceptionally beautiful woman, Samantha "Sam" Shane (Brooklyn Decker) who turns out to be the daughter of the admiral commanding the US fleet based at Hawaii, (Liam Neeson) comes into the bar to ask for a chicken burrito, to be told that it is one minute too late for her to order food. I'm not going to spoil the scene by explaining exactly how the smitten Alex Hopper responds but let's just say that you wouldn't believe how much trouble an attempt to get a chicken burrito one minute too late can cause, and the following morning his elder brother, who is a naval officer, says that Alex is going to join the navy where Stone can keep an eye on him.

The film then jumps forward six years to the RIMPAC 2012 international naval exercises.

This film has for only purpose to entertain us and in this aspect it is highly successful. The main hero is very likeable, the leading girl charming, the display of military hardware impressive, the aliens naughty (and ugly and stupid!), the scenario doesn't make much sense, the CGI effects are EXCELLENT, US Navy is the best, US government is incompetent - in one word, everything is as it should be in a movie made to go nicely with your popcorn on a Friday evening.

The main hero, Lt. Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch) is a troubled young man who after messing up a lot in his early life finally joined the US Navy and by some extraordinary miracle managed to become an officer in charge of weapons on board of USS "John Paul Jones", a very powerful destroyer of "Arleigh Burke" class. He is however poorly noted by his superiors and is generally considered as a disappointment and a failure. The unexpected alien invasion during a naval exercice will suddenly force him to take command ("Who is in charge? "Hooper" "We are so dead!") and lead his men into a particularly deadly fight against a vicious and resourceful enemy.

Other than his messy life style Alex Hooper has also another "problem" - his gorgeous, sculpturally beautiful girlfriend Samantha (Brooklyn Decker). She loves him, he loves her and they are engaged to be married - but her father hates his guts and for reasons which you will have to discover yourself his agreement to their marriage actually matters...

If you can stomach the first twenty minutes of absolute dross about "boy - meets - girl - but - father - won't - like - him" and "enemies - later - to - become - best - buddies" and "a - disillusioned - amputee - war - veteran - later - to - think - life - is - worth - living" then the nitty gritty of the actual film about aliens landing in the ocean wanting to take over our satellite stations is really good with plenty of excellent CGI and good fast paced believable action. And , by the way , also skip the last ten minutes of sentimental drivel about how the good ole USA saved the world.
