"It's an action movie" is not an excuse!
I ate 4-cheeses tortellini for lunch and then went to see "Battleship". guess which one was cheesier. This movie is terrible and I'll tell you why, but first let me say one thing. This is not how action movies should be made and it is not fair to make bad movies just to cash some money because "hey, it's an action movie!" I don't believe in low class genres: is not a sin to enjoy an action movie, but it should be a good movie anyway! Battleship has an horrible plot, actually nothing happens but it does it in more than 2 hours. God if it was boring! I don't understand how you could ever make a movie with explosions and fast-paced editing sooo boring. There are elements that make to sudden apparitions and too much plot holes. There are some TERRIBLE comic scenes, like the one where the guy is stealing a burrito for his bigtittied trophy. In that moment it becomes American pie, the family guy, epic movie. There's a LOT of FAKE lens flare. I don't understand why, is it a fad now? In super8 they had a meaning, but in battleship there are even more and they really make no sense. Every single clichè, you can find it in here. well, we live in a postmodern period so that's okay, we are used to see old clichés. The problem is that they use them like it is 1980 and it's the first time. If you care about that, the aliens are really a bunch of pussies. They invade earth and the humans have to struggle a little to fight them. Yeah, just because they use only THREE American ships (actual war ships, not space ships) and a couple of airplanes. It's the lamest alien invasion ever! Don't watch this movie because is really really bad. What could I expect from a movie inspired by the eponymous game? The premise seems a parody from youtube actually.

Avoid at all costs
2 Hours of my life waisted watching this, The acting was hammy, It was just pure crap, Taylor Kitsch must feel, the visual effects are done quite well, Liam Neeson can't even save the movie although I'm sure he is walking away with a cheeky grin and a few million for his appearance in this car crash, the casting of Rihanna was a mistake (well we all knew that from the get-go) The so called 'humour' scenes were unbelievably cringey and you just could not help but shake your head while witnessing it. and especially the addition of the 'cool' f**k yeah this is America soundtrack, Creedence at the end and AC/DC in there too

I had a lot of sympathy for Taylor Kitsch especially since this was going to be a big year for him as Hollywood actor after John Carter bombed, but in this you can tell the guy is as wooden as a desk.

I'm ashamed of myself after seeing this movie and even more ashamed I didn't walk out.

Rides every cliché that ever existed
Corny, silly, ridiculous, stupid, pointless, mindless. Probably one of the worst movies this year. Aliens need a signal to get to Earth then they come with explosive weapons and earthly technology and the navy beats the aliens with a battleship. The unlikely but obvious hero marries the beautiful princess, the elderly retirees get their second chance at being heroes, the handicapped soldier also gets a second chance at being a hero and the Japanese marine helps the USA save the world from an alien invasion. The story is weak, predictable and the acting is very mediocre. Liam Neeson has made a custom of choosing bad story lines for his work. It seems as this movie has been paid for by the Navy to lure young mindless people to join their ranks. Distasteful, unpleasant.

Eyes Open or Opinion Beforehand
I saw this movie in cinema. Later, I asked about the DVD in a rental store. The clerk said this was a Michael Bay movie. I did not make the connection, and even now I see Peter Berg is the director's name; but the clerk went on to say Michael Bay directed Transformers 1,2 and 3. High-tech aliens, lots of explosions, an underdog human race that the viewer will root for. Does Battleship fit that bill? Yes. It may be recent years have changed us in that we can see the special effects in this film are first-rate, and we no longer find a great light-show sufficient, but must subsist on the fetish requirement of that unidentified something we were looking for when choosing a movie. Let us seek that which this movie offers. Spoilers follow. Since Captain and Executive Officer are killed by the enemy,the rebel brother takes command and proves resourceful against a prominent foe by redirecting fire and repositioning ship for a strategic hard hit. When it is discovered the enemy has very effective stealth technology, an innovative method of learning their position is illustrated. A self-admitting coward, an amputee, and his therapist become instrumental in foiling enemy communication attempts. A perfect ending to illustrate our condition. Liam Neeson plays the father of the rebel's love interest. After saving the world he seeks permission from the girl's father to marry her, and he says no. "Saving the world is one thing; marrying my daughter is quite another." As with the Admiral whose criteria might be unreasonable, it appears that lately every movie is required to qualify before it can be called acceptable. Let the movie stand on its own, and you may be surprised; but it's not to impress me or because some reviewer thought one way about it. You make your own mind.

This was NOT a BAD Movie
This was one of the most exciting movies I've seen in a long time. How anal can people get complaining about it. I never go to movies expecting to see REALITY. If I want that, I'll watch Jersey Whore.

I want to be shocked, surprised, ooohed and ahhhed. Battleship did that. Sure the acting was Academy Award Winning, but it was good enough to keep me interested, and the action was purely off the hook.

Explosions, effects... sure.. a 500 lbs alien in a suit could kill anyone with one swipe.. but this is a movie, and in the style of the old A Team show where No one ever got shot despite 100 rounds going off... its purely entertainment. The best part, using the old veterans in the movie and given them all one liners.. which in MY theater, was a riot. The entire audience was laughing.

If you want good entertainment, that doesn't necessarily MAKE SENSE, this is a great movie.

went in with low expectations but actually enjoyed it
ill have to browse other movie reviews to compare but i watch a lot of movies and rarely give bad reviews to action or suspense type movies which i enjoy. 007 skyfall and con air may be the only movies I've ever truly hated but anyway i heard a lot of bad reviews on this movie and was really skeptical but it came on HBO so i decided to watch it and i think its one of the better sci-fi movies I've seen since starship troopers or independence day. it was hard to overlook rhianna being a character in the film but she did an OK job. i don't understand people saying the movie was "boring", i mean there was action almost the entire way through once the invasion came. like i said im pretty reasonable, i enjoyed waterworld as well even though thats considered one of the biggest bombs ever.

chicken burrito and kentucky fried chicken
This is my first ever review on IMDb and after watching this movie a few hours ago I was compelled to register on IMDb so I could play the Battleship guessing game with you (similar to the original Battleship, only that it's not).

Q1: How does a radio telescopes work? Do they

A - Detect and collect data on radio sources

B - Shoot some type of visible light laser beam to another solar system in the hope to communicate with aliens?

Answer: B - It's hard for someone to imagine how a signal is sent.

Q2: What would be the best way for an alien ship to travel once on earth?

A - Fly

B - Hop on the water (in one direction) like a cross between a water strider and a frog

Answer: B - Also staying true to their weapons system which only work line of sight.

Q3: Once the alien destruction robots are launched to attack and weaken the human defense, do they

A - Destroy 20 unarmed helicopters

B - Ruin a field where kids are playing baseball

C - Destroy the only remaining docked Battleship equipped with Harpoon and Tomahawk missiles

D - Attack some concrete pillars holding up a section of a freeway

Answer: A,B,D - Who would ever think that the USS Missouri had a better chance of attacking the aliens as opposed to a freeway.

Q4: Your a bad-ass alien who traveled ten's of light years to take over another planet, what do you bring as a personal weapon?

A - A ray guy than can evaporate anything in sight

B - Any other type of projectile weapon

C - A knife that looks like a screwdriver

Answer: C - The only weakness being that it takes this weapon 20 seconds to warm up, giving a double leg amputee enough time to walk up to the armored alien kick-box it in the head and take off it's helmet.

Q5: The humans have fired a tomahawk missile at your alien ship. What do you do?

A - Try to shoot it down with your own weapons

B - Try to maneuver your ship out of the way

C - Have your alien ship hop directly into the missile

Answer: C - Oh yes that's right the alien ship is only equipped with grenades and it can only move in the direction it is facing.

Q6: Your building an alien war ship that will be used to take over a planet. What material do you use to protect the bridge?

A - A type of super strong metal

B - Glass

Answer: B - Taking over a planet is not so easy when a few sniper rifle rounds breaches the hull on the bridge and kills the alien commander.

If you got 0% then watch the trailer and save yourself from having your intelligence insulted.

If you got above 1% then steal a chicken burrito, become captain of the navy in a few years and save the planet from an alien invasion by taking commands from an officer 20 ranks below you.

What "Battle LA" could have been.
OK, first of all, yes, this movie has more holes than the surface of the moon. Some of the plot points, tactics, technical gaffes, etc. etc. etc. are so bad and stupid as the be insulting. Seriously, if you are up on your military technology at all it's best to go to this movie seriously drunk so that you won't care about the dumbness.

That said, it's actually a pretty fun movie. And, yes, I think it's better than Battle Los Angeles or even the latest Transformers. Why? Because this movie didn't make the same critical mistakes of trying to have Acting in the damn film. Nothing slows down a good action flick like a damn love story in the background, or the hero dealing with his feelings or, worse still, putting brats in the line of fire. Battleship had none of that - just a bunch of thick-headed do- gooders doing what they do best and not really learning a whole lot about anything, including themselves, in the process.

Another thing I like is that there is an appreciation for the warships and the people who serve on them. The timing of the ACDC music for the going-into-battle scene is perfectly done. You can't help but smile.

The alien technology is actually pretty imaginative and the animation is good. It's not as over- the-top as Battle LA - where there was so much going on you get overwhelmed. But when the aliens want something blowed up, they do so with conviction. Mind you, some of the technical deficiencies of the alien technology will leave you wondering how these creatures managed to cross a galaxy. But try not to worry about that - the writers sure didn't.

The cast is OK. Neeson is decent as the admiral or whatever, and even Rihanna does an acceptable job. We're not talking about "Apocalypse Now" kinds of performances, but it wasn't horrible either. It was at least semi-believable.

Look, this ain't no "Bedford Incident". But it's a pretty decent way to kill a couple hours and snarf down some popcorn. All the folks griping about the technical problems - well, it's all true - but who cares? This movie doesn't pretend to be realistic. Hell, in the credits it's "Based on the game by Hasbro," so go in prepared and enjoy.

good staff for enjoy for once !!!
well I can not say that it is a very good or WOW! movie. but it is a good time passing staff. the story I fell is really weak and also that does not make any scene. but the actions were good. "Tylor Kitsch" try hard. but overall the movie dose not work. whenever it comes to a hero, he can do everything though if he is not a tough guy at all.. A person who never took a tough dissociation he can actually save the world. well done!! there are some other thing that I like about this movie the alien ships and the big "SMASH" balls.

so I can say watch it for once only. because second time you really don't wanna watch it again.

Tons of Action, Funny Parts, and Suspense
KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Anthony Aranda (age 10) shares his review below: video review here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ6xSgC7sD0

This movie is awesome! I loved it because it has a ton of action, lots of funny parts and suspense.

The main characters are Alex Hopper, Sam, Cora and Yugi. My favorite character is Alex Hopper because he is really funny and brave. He wants revenge on the aliens who are attacking them because they hurt his brother.

This movie revolves around Alex Hopper who joins the Navy because he needs to get his life together. The Captain in the Navy doesn't really like Alex because they think he won't be any help to them. Alex goes out on a destroyer to look for other boats and they come across a large mass in the water. That's where they find the aliens and then start fighting for their lives.

My favorite part is when Alex Hopper tries to get a burrito for a girl he likes named Sam. The kitchen is closed so he goes through a lot of trouble to get her this burrito. It's really funny because he falls down a few times and then gets chased by police who tazer him. It is hilarious!

I recommend this movie for ages 10 and up because there is violence in the movie and it is rated PG-13. I think kids 10 and up would love this movie though because it has so much action.
