Battleship is a cross between a US Navy Recruitment campaign and a film based on a board game. It is as odd as that sounds. The army message of 'Your life won't amass to anything without us' message is a bit sickening and the 'Those left disabled by war are still useful' message ...

Sometimes you just want to turn your brain off and watch things getting blown up. This picture fits the bill perfectly. Don't try and think - don't notice the obvious plot contrivances, the cartoonish caricatures, the total implausibility - manage all that and you have a decent...

I was pleasantly surprised at this, fearing another alien film closer to Skyline, this was a lot more like Independence Day at sea!! The SFX are really great and certainly has a impressive feel to it. There is plenty of action and a mix of humour as well with a well chosen cast. ...

Ok. I admit it. I am an absolute sucker for these kinds of movies. Fun! Exciting! Action filled! Plenty to hooray about!! A love letter to U.S. veterans, and the military in general. One part Independence Day; one part Armageddon. Yes, things may get far-fetched in the end, and t...

Decent actioner with cool effects, Battleship based on the classic board game is not as bad as everyone claims it to be, but it's not a good film either. I enjoyed the film, and I was entertained. If you're looking for an effective and thrilling action film that is mindless, then...

Quite possibly one of dumbest, loudest and cheesiest action movies I've seen in quite some time, Battleship is also extremely hilarious and a thoroughly entertaining affair. The loyalty and support the movie displays for US Navy Sailors of the past and present is heartwarming, an...

Peter Berg does some good and also some bad with Battleship.
It isn't easy to picture a film coming from a board game that doesn't have a whole lot to begin with. Battleship does contain a plot, although there isn't much to it. It's more the action than anything...

Mindless, plot-less action with lots of special effects is what I came to see and what I got. Rihanna mostly ruined it as the bitch who just wouldn't shut up. I was also disappointed that Skarsgard for second billing but did not get much screen-time.
