Reviews
Why did I watch this Hollywood movie?
The characters: Mostly douches with bad lines.

The story: Aliens invade, their ships are clumsy and weird and jump on water. America (and to a lesser, lesser extent Japan saves the world). There are moments when you wish you could unsee the tacky ways they (the movie makers) try to make heroes and bad-asses of certain people. Most notably the old sailors on the USS Missouri which are posed (yes, really posed!) everywhere, high and low in an awkward way that just makes you wanna squirm and throw up a little bit.

The aliens: At first you think: "This alien race seems really noble." Second thought: "I hope the aliens win, I hate the characters in this movie so much!" Third thought: "Huh, so the aliens aren't noble, they're just stupid. And they seem a bit evil according to the unoriginal flashback John Carter got but... I'm still rooting for the aliens! Go aliens, exterminate this movie-verse!!"

The sum: Why did I watch this movie with awkward characters, unlikable at best. Silly plot with horribly pushed tie-ins to the battleship game. Plain dumb aliens. In-your-face product placement (Cola Zero, LG, Subway and probably some more). Why? I was really, really bored. And now I've lost faith in Hollywood movie making. It's not better then Transformers, It's just as bad.

If your over 10 years old: Don't watch this. If you 10 or younger: Don't watch this.

Hollywood needs to learn that they can't push this crap from the toilet to the big screen anymore!

Great movie!
I love this movie!!! I watch it at least 3 or 4 times a month, just for plain old entertainment. I don't care if its based on the Battleship game or not, I don't watch it to be critical or to look for any little thing wrong with it. I didn't get to watch it in the theater, so I bought a digital copy on itunes, then on vudu. It gives me a good feeling to watch it, even if some of the dialog is corny. I like the music, and I especially like all of the special effects! My kids warned me before I saw this movie, that it wasn't going to be any good. They haven't seen it all the way through, just bits and pieces of it when I'm watching it. For me, this movie is just plain fun and entertaining.

More Fun Than It Has Any Right To Be
On a certain level, there's no way I can claim that Battleship is a good movie in any conventional sense. The plot is incredulous and the script couldn't be riddled with more holes if you unloaded a shotgun at it. Even the idea that the movie is based on Hasbro's classic board game of the same name is rather disingenuous: yes, there is a battleship involved in the action, almost all of which takes place at sea, but other than that any resemblance to the game we all grew up playing seems purely coincidental. And I certainly don't remember any aliens in the game I had.

But somehow, despite it all, Battleship stays afloat. There's a certain energy and enthusiasm to the film that is infectious, even via the big screen. The story may not make a whole lot of sense, but it is a lot of fun. The extravagant special effects—merely par for the course in any modern would-be blockbuster—are one factor, but spectacular as the many explosions, gunfights, and various displays of pyrotechnics are, there's more to it than that, an overriding sense of fun that makes all the conventional weaknesses of the film meaningless.

Certainly, the cast seems to be having a lot of fun on screen. Taylor Kitsch, who stars as Lt. Alex Hopper, is an empathetic hero whose struggle to overcome his personal weaknesses is ultimately played out with the fate of the world at stake when he finds himself and the crew of his Navy destroyer in the wrong place at the wrong time—and smack in the middle of an amphibious alien invasion. Alexander Skarsgard plays Alex's older brother and mentor, a Navy Captain to whom Alex feels he has been a shallow disappointment. The gorgeous Brooklyn Decker does an adequate job as Alex's girlfriend, Samantha, whose father just happens to be the Admiral of the fleet, and played by the great Liam Neeson in a typically authoritative performance. The only real weak spot in the cast is singer Rihanna, making her big screen debut and looking like it. One can only hope that if Rihanna pursues further acting roles, she'll improve…a lot.

The plot isn't deep, but it does have some positive aspects, incorporating elements of personal redemption, self-empowerment, and self-sacrifice, all concepts that more movies would be well-advised to advance. And while the movie is in a sense very violent—once the aliens arrive, things start to blow up at a rapid clip—there's nothing especially graphic or bloody. The dialog isn't Oscar-worthy, but is sometimes quite witty.

In the end, Battleship is a prototypical summer actioner. It's nowhere nearly as good as The Avengers, but as a very different type of film is still worth seeing if big-budget mayhem is your thing. If you're okay with a movie that doesn't stimulate your brain and requires only that you go along for the fast-paced ride and enjoy the show, Battleship is surprisingly entertaining.

Battlesh*t
Battleship is bar none the worst movie I have seen in recent years. It is a noisy, clichéd and unbearable piece of trash that exploits the work of CG artists and paying customers who just want to be entertained.

A simple way to describe Battleship, is that it's basically a $200 million naval recruitment video that was made by a schizophrenic 8 year old who likes video games and things going Ka-Boom.

The main heroes in this movie are indeed American navy sailors, but the one thing the film-makers really failed at is making these people likable and realistic. Taylor Kitsch plays the lead character, he's basically some drop out loser who robs convenience stores to get girlfriends and joins the navy at his brothers behest, and in what seems like no time at all he becomes a lieutenant with big responsibilities on a naval vessel with some few hundred men beneath him.

The special effects are the only thing to keep you invested, however they're all completely CG so it just likes a cut-scene from a video game . Something that should be impressive (like a ship sinking) is made pointless because it's something clearly rendered on a computer.

The soundtrack to the movie is okay composition wise, but it's often loud and draws attention to itself and it sounds exactly like the Inception soundtrack on numerous occasions.

This movie has the shadow of Transformers looming over it, both in its marketing and tone. Battleship however is far, far, far worse than any of those three films and it could probably be used as a symbol for the decline of western civilisation.

Battleship will scar you for life.
When they said that the people who made Transformers made this movie they said a mouthful. This movie IS Transformers, in fact you could rename it to Transformers 4 and no one would notice the difference. But at the same time it's at least ten times worse than Transformers. When the first Transformers movie came out, as ridiculous as it was, it was something new and fresh and fun. But if like me you hated Transformers 2 and 3, Battleship will scar you for life. When the credits rolled and I walked out of the theater all I could think was "Why?". I should point out that if it wasn't for my friend, I would have walked out an hour after the movie started. And I would have had I known what horror awaited me. I can think of only one excuse for this movie and it's that if it's made for 5 year old kids, and here's why:

CHARACTERS: Five minutes in and you're told that the main character is in fact an idiot. The next moment he's the captain of a battleship. (Every kid's fantasy.) His entire crew is apparently no brighter than him, because they follow every idiotic order he gives. Not much to say here really, none of the characters have any depth and pretty much all of them are walking stereotype definitions. The biggest miscast in this film is, of course, Rihanna. Every time she popped up on the screen I couldn't help but think "What the f*** is this tiny girl doing on a battleship? And why is she the only female member of the crew?".

DIALOG: Calling it childish would be a compliment. I usually laugh at bad dialog, but here after a few laughs I wanted to cry. That's how bad it was.

ACTING: Average to below average - fits the movie really.

MUSIC: The soundtrack is one of the main aspects of this movie that I had a big problem with. After the battle starts the music becomes intense and it stays that way up until the very end, which is like the entire second half of the movie. I don't know about the others, but that exhausted the crap out of me. Not appreciated.

SPECIAL EFFECTS: You've seen it all in Transformers, except here they are 10 more in volume and that much more exhausting. After a few battle scenes the effects become old really fast.

PLOT: Laughable. 5 year old children or younger might like it, but not me. As open minded as I am, I have to say that never before while watching a science fiction action movie have I asked myself "What the f*** is happening?" or "How is that even possible?". Like I said the second half of the movie is non-stop action with close-ups and over the top fast motion VFX sequences.

Summary: Horrible. Do not waste your time and money on this. Don't even go see it for free. Not even if they pay you. It's not mindless fun like some say. Mindless sure, but fun... if you're a masochist then maybe. The current rating of 6.4 stars that this movie has here on IMDb is beyond me. Don't believe the good reviews, you can not check your brain at the door and enjoy it, it's impossible.

Bad-Ass!
'Battleship' is a Bad-Ass Entertainer! An Out-And-Out Popcorn Entertainer, with Remarkable Action-Sequences, Top-Notch Graphics & Convincing Performances working all the way to its advantage. I had a ball!

'Battleship' Synopsis: A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals.

Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber's Screenplay offers non-stop entertainment! Its fast, progressive & gives great scope for mind-blasting action. The Action-Sequences are Remarkable! The mainstay of this motion-picture, that has collected over 300 million dollars worldwide! Graphics are Top-Notch! Peter Berg's Direction is highly competent.

Performances are Convincing. Taylor Kitsch is worthy as the hero. Alexander Skarsgård is fantastic. Brooklyn Decker is a bonus to any film. Rihanna is pretty raw & ruthless, while the Great Liam Neeson is a joy to watch, as always.

On the whole, 'Battleship' is a Winner! Recommended!

So Promising - So disappointing
There are 3 hugely anticipated block-busters this year and Battleship was the first one to be released. I had expectations of watching this at that cinema a few times and getting it on blue ray - this is my type of movie!; or at least that was the expectation. With such great promotional footage and Liam Neeson heading the cast, it had to be great. In reality, Neeson has almost a bit part (in fact you see most of it in the promotional adverts), clearly there to increase sales of the movie; with the bulk of the 'acting' coming from Taylor Kitsch.

A ludicrous start with Kitsch playing a 27 year loser who, on the recommendation of his brother (Alexander Scarsgard) joins the Navy, suddenly to become at Lt Cdr - The script is clearly written by someone with no military knowledge or experience and that the actions, demeanour and interaction with all that are supposed to be military personnel, is a non sense. It makes Top Gun look believable! However, it gets worse;with aliens that have made there way to earth with great looking craft,that impressively rise from the ocean (great CGG) - you see it on the commercials for the movie, the only weapon they possess are melee type Armour - pretty ridiculous

really and by this point the movie has lost any form of credibility. The outcome is obvious from the first few minutes and I certainly wouldn't go back for a repeat viewing. It's still probably worth a watch if you can't resist, but don't buy any pop corn; there's enough corn in this movie!

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.

once again, the rating is all wrong
This film, best considered a younger cousin to the classic Independence Day (which I confess I have seen about a dozen times, NOT MY FAULT, they keep showing it every independence day! Duh!) is one of those all-too-common entries in the IMDb database that simply don't make sense. First of all look at the number of IMDb members who have taken time off their busy schedules to comment. Seriously, go check. I'll wait here until you get back. See the problem? If the film were really that mundane, that forgettable, would there really be so many people willing to comment? (Note to IMDb intelligentsia -- do people review films because they genuinely want to leave a guidepost for viewers of the future, or do they review films because they simply love a good scrap?) In any case, for those readers who are interested, I will point out that while the acting is merely OK, the script, this massively un-appreciated script, is to die for. In other words, the writers completely understood that to connect with the audience, you start small, you build bridges, and then you escalate and escalate and ultimately you provide a payoff. Sound simple? Then why don't more movies have scripts as smooth as this one? (Ditto for Independence Day, the script there is a work of art as well). And in case you wondering, can a good story by itself elevate a film to classic status? Darn right! In any case, I gave a rating which I consider commiserate with the actual entertainment value. Footnote: in a silent homage to the series Battlestar Gallactica, which was unique and ground-breaking in so many ways, the producers cast Rihanna, one of the most striking women of the century, in the uniform of a Chief Petty Officer and then watched with bemusement (I think) as male viewers had their eyes pop out of their heads every time she got screen time.(In BSG the analogue was Kandyse McClure.) A really solid entertaining film deserving a much higher rating.
