Wave that flag. Silly but enjoyable transformers style romp that lacks in story but makes up for in eye popping effects. The Peter Berg of 'Very Bad Things' is long gone with this Michael Bay style machismo fest, mind you it does have less unintentional laughs than the Bay canon. Well shot by Schliessler but the cast is as cardboard cut-out as the script. The old 'right stuff' sequence a real howler. Wave that flag.
Just like Transformers, it's predominantly blue, ridiculously boring, and incredibly flat. I sadly had to sit through the entirety of this ordeal but although I tried to mitigate the eyesore by sleeping intermittently, I still cannot believe what a complete waste this thing is.
Now, I'm no lyrical wordsmith like Kanye West or William Shakespeare, but it seems Peter Berg has a hidden agenda in his new spectacular that the average human brain has frankly forgotten. The plot is almost identical to the last passage of Come Sail Away by the Greek classical composer Styx. Surely, I am not the only one in the cannon of this explosive adaptation of the Battlefield video games.
Better than the last few ventures Micheal Bay has been involved in. The old ww2 vets and the man with "cyborg" legs where like crazy stunt ploys to keep up attention and sympathy in the otherwise bland world of naval warfare. The most exciting scene is one spent staring at a blue glorified battleship screen. Transformers meets Pear Harbor with less of the annoying aspects of each. I didn't hate it.
