Most action movies you'd be stupid to critique as they're just a "sit down and watch" type. But, there are things that can sometimes bring a reasonable action movie down, such as below average dialogue... Read more or acting or just really dumb scenes.
Battleship, starts with pretty weak dialogue but when the action starts you do forget about it a little. The "based on the game" reference is a bit of a joke to be honest. In saying that, if you saw the shorts with alien encounters, you'd realise this was going to be a long shot.
It's still not a "strong" action movie but it is watchable, just be sure to disengage your brain before hand.
Oh dear, this is quite bad. Tremendously silly story and dialogue and way too long It is amusing how they link the whole thing in with the Battleship game, though. If you want to watch a silly action... Read more movie with Taylor Kitsch, try John Carter. Much more fun.
the plot was OK , but the reality about bringing an old battleship into life in a matter of hours,complete with munitions, is laughable.
Please make things believable or attempt to.
Not all audiences are stupid!
Great visual effects.
VERY cheesy. I had to fast forward some of the beginning stuff.
But great visual effects and a clever way to incorporate the classic battleship game into the movie... Read more.
I definitely enjoyed it but you need to check in your cheese detector before you watch the movie.
An embarrassing movie, by Americans, for Americans about Americans saving the world. Booyah, Yeah... Right. The annoying aliens provide a brief period of entertaining diversion.
Yawn! A very predictable and unrealistic story, very short on the plot and saved from a one star status by some good special effects. Good for the younger viewer with a vivid imagination.
I agree with the other reviews on this movie (shows you should pay attention to those who have bothered to write a review!) This movie was predictable, lame but the links to the Battleship game was interesting.
Tbh the Story is sh*t. BUT! With great CGI and humour here and there made this a great family night movie! 4/5
PS. I didn't realise how skinny Rihanna was...would've been awesome if she died...in the movie, that is.
Special effects was good, good action, good to see the old timers from from the Missouri.
I enjoyed the action in this plus the humour. There were parts where it was slow & below average but for the most part I enjoyed watching something I didn't have to use my brain for. A bit of escapism.
