Rick Brands's rating of the film Battleship

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.
