Peter Berg United States, 2012

HKFanatic's rating of the film Battleship

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.
