It doesn't feel right watching this movie without a Republican in office. Peter Berg is a one-trick pony when it comes to directing event movies but "Battleship" is anchored by a knowingly-lunkheaded, Keanu Reeves-esque performance from Taylor Kitsch and a hell of a lot of exposions. At 130 minutes it's too long for its own good, but then again there's a scene where a black guy with steel legs fist-fights an alien.
a fresh and decent alien flick that is slightly better than its similar films with some nice production design,visual and sound effects. Story is very linear with some good humor and exciting war strategy.
it was better than i first thought. do not expect a sophisticated plot for this kind. just boom and bang with great visual effect.
i kind of weak with anything related to extra terrestrial in silver screen, so yeah it's not that bad for me. but it's a shame that Liam Neeson not given a bigger proportion for his role.
Independence Day meets Pearl Harbor on a Hawaiian holiday, and somehow the result's even crappier than that already sounds. It's got a great soundtrack, though (Black Keys, AC/DC, CCR, Band of Horses, ZZ Top), and the alien flying balls aren't too shabby either. Still, all in all it's a very uninspired, clichéd Michael Bay wannabe flick - but hey, what did you expect. 1/5.
A film told from the point of view of the bad guys - the Americans - as they attack and kill a bunch of aliens that crash land on Earth and do nothing particularly hostile except out of self-defence. It was so bizarrely illogical I almost got angry at it.
I imagine the writers freaking out in a board room. "It's a recession! Whatever pays the bills! I need to feed my family!" while an unhelpful VP delivers a copy of the game and says "It's all there, ladies and gentleman. Make showbiz magic!" After popping adderall and pulling their hair out, the writers throw together the Titanic, Transformers, a pinch of Star Wars, & Navy commercials with a quippy, sassy black lady.
