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 film’s initial premise sets the scene for an entertaining, spectacular adrenaline-fueled SF action movie with quality CGI and a rip-roaring screenplay involving likeable human characters fighting formidable aliens for the survival of the planet. The humanoid aliens have arrived in their spaceships in response to an explorative signal sent by a few years previously by NASA to their homeworld, a ‘Goldilocks’ planet, but unfortunately for us earthlings they do not come in peace. Against the backdrop of some pulsating rock music Taylor Kitsch’s slacker turned undisciplined U.S. Navy officer leads the offensive against seemingly insurmountable odds with the help of the mothballed battleship U.S.S. Missouri, Earth’s last best hope. Despite its obvious flaws, this unpretentious escapist movie has just about the right blend of cheesy humour and derring-do, and one cannot but admire the inventiveness of the screenwriters in being able to engineer a battle sequence that approximately replicates the classic board game of its title. Not classic SF, but I don’t think it ever aspired to be.

Normally I quite enjoy a mindless action romp - I (sadly) managed to enjoy Skyline, Battle L.A. and even bits of Independence Day. Seeing as I'm capable of removing my brain in order to squeeze some mild enjoyment out of Danny Dyer's films, I thought I could employ the same technique with Battleship. Sadly, there wasn't a planet far enough away in the universe that I could ship my mind to in order to enjoy this film.

Taylor Kitsch plays a man who, while chatting up a girl in a bar, decides to steal her some food from a local convenience store in order to impress her. He subsequently gets arrested and then his brother informs him that he should join the navy. He does. If that isn't hard enough to believe he makes Lieutenant Commander in the next scene and ends up captaining a Battleship when it's captain gets (conveniently) killed.

Enter the aliens: they fly halfway across the universe in spaceships so advanced that they sit in the water and then only move by jumping forward in small leaps (seriously). They also only fire bombs and a few spinny disc-type things that break roads and ignore children playing baseball.

Taylor Kitsch then enlists the help of retired naval servicemen and amputees to beat up the alien threat and save the day (along with Rhianna who has a baseball cap that never leaves her head even when she jumps out of a ship and into water).

Okay, so, as with most big-budget Hollywood films, the special effects are top notch. The aliens are good, but we've seen cities being destroyed in things like Independence Day and Godzilla, plus (unfortunately) anyone who's seen the 9/11 footage has watched buildings fall down in real life, leaving Hollywood's interpretations a bit redundant. However, it's the acting that's the problem.

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.

Battleship is the story of the RIMPAC joint-naval exercises that are rudely interrupted by an alien invasion. The Aliens set-up some sort of force-field around the Hawaiian islands, separating the John-Paul-Jones and a couple of other ships from the main navy. It becomes clear that the aliens are trying to contact home using the satellite array on Oahu and the only thing standing between the aliens and the array are a bunch of rag-tag survivors. Can they stop this invasion?

Well, first off a lot of people have likened this to Halo and they are pretty much correct. The aliens are pretty unimaginative, they just look like any number of FPS video game characters (Halo, Crysis & Haze all have similar suits & visors) but with some dactyl-alteration. This film stars Rihanna and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) and surprisingly, Ri-Ri is not that bad, despite only having simple response lines ("Yes Sir, right away") but there are no scenes that hinge on her emotional performance. Liam Neeson provides a decent rendition of a stern but heartfelt Naval Admiral. The story runs in two arcs: the battle between the ships (clue's in the title) and the land-based advance on the satellite facility. It's fairly linear, but the revival of the U.S.
