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.

There are many films out there with lots of action and little sense behind it, but this one takes the cake. It could have been directed by Michael Bay himself, though to be honest if it had been directed by him, I think it would have had a little bit more plot and made more sense. See, we basically have a guy who is a loser compared to his brother who is in the US Navy enlist in an effort to set his life straight after breaking into a convenience store to get a chicken burrito for a hungry girl he just met at a bar. And this very fellow is the film's main protagonist.

Somehow he has managed to rise among the ranks of the Navy and yet he is a failure in the eyes of the Admiral who wants to relieve him off all duties at the end of the joint international navy drill called RIMPAC that takes place each year near Hawaii, obviously a global hotspot when it comes to all things maritime. Coincidentally, this is also where the Mauna Kea observatory is located, from where a couple years ago, astronomers sent a signal to a satellite orbiting earth that comes around every 24 hours in order to project a signal to a planet they have discovered several light years away in the potentially habitable Goldilocks Zone of its respective star. The highly advanced extraterrestrial civilization there receives the signal and sends a scouting fleet that tracks the planet the signal is coming from and decides to land exactly at the signal's origin, which, unfortunately for them, happens to be the largest navy base on the planet. And so all is set for the most large scale version of Battleship: The Game to be played out in real life, pitting humans against aliens.

That's what you paid money to see, right?

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.

I saw the trailer and I didnt think it looked bad but it didnt really interest me enough to go and see it at the cinema. I was dragged along with my dad, brother and his friend and dad. I am glad I went.

As you all know, there have been MANY alien invasion-type movies being and have been released in the past year and this year, but among them stands a box office giant, and that movie is Battleship. The story is set around a naval fleet that accidentally makes contact with aliens known as "The Regent." Soon, the world is thrown into chaos as these creatures have a hidden agenda of which did not involve human presence, which is now to be dealt with in the most severe way; annihilation.

The acting all around was good. Taylor Kitsch was great, I've heard about him before but I've never actually seen any of his movies but he was great in this one. Liam Neeson, for the parts he was in, was fantastic as he always is. Rihanna wasn't as bad as I thought she was going to be and considering this is her first movie I think she did pretty well.

Peter Berg did a fantastic job directing this movie, he used a wide range of camera angles to show us everything that was going on. The sound fx and design was astounding and the soundtrack by Steve Jablonsky was superb too. All in all I think that Battleship isn't as original as something like Inception but it's still a great summer blockbuster and it's definitely worth watching on the big screen.
