How does this movie exist? Not sure how this movie exists but it does and I just wasted 2 hours of my life watching it. The acting is not very good on anyone's part. Liam Neeson pretty much phones this one in. Taylor Kitsch's character is not likeable at any point and he gets way too many passes by all of the other characters when in real life, a joker like this would be dismissed by all. His brother in the film over does the "be all you can be" speeches. Everyone else is pretty much along for the paycheck. The one memorable performance is Gregory D. Gadson as Lieutenant Colonel Mick Canales. Also, these are probably the first aliens in movie history that fly across space and then land on a planet in vehicles that can only maneuver in water. Wait until this is like 99 cents if you really really want to see it.
Warning, this movie is rated I for immature audiences. If you are over twelve years of age, you will be highly offended at it's incredibly childish premise. The movie begins with 30 minutes of boring lead story introducing the most unlikely character to ever become a US Navy officer. A neer do well in his twenties who robs a convenience store and is tasered by cops while escaping. His brother bails him out and before he even has a chance to do time for his crime, his bro tells him, you need to straighten yourself out, go join the Navy. (The Navy doesn't accept convicted criminals so...) In the next scene, our hero is a first lieutenant in the US Navy. After losing his destroyer in battle, they fire up an antique battleship, mothballed for decades serving as a museum exhibit which just happens to have fuel and munitions left over from the last time it was at sea. Pretty miraculous to say the least. If not for the effects, this movie offers absolutely nothing.
A Google User I was in the movie but my speaking part was left on the cutting floor. I did not know that the NAVY had female assault machine Gunners that also had multiple Tasks and Ranks for various positions. It provided for a big laugh to us who know about ship assignments; not a Seaman,Petty Officer at one time and a Division Officer the next Rihanna was a farce and an insult to the Navy. The Gal and Guy on the beach was a copy cat and had no place in the movie.. It was do before a long time ago. Maybe it was meant to be a comedy??? but I had fun helping make it; see me in old salts
Maybe one of the dumbest and most pointless movies ever created. Reviews say this movie is for young teens and on down, and oh my God are they right! The casting was what shocked me though. I mean, Rihanna?! In a movie about ships and aliens?! The beginning was also very slow and boring to sit through. It would have just been better if they skipped the village idiot trying to win the heart of an obviously desperate young woman and just went straight to the main character being assigned to the Navy and watch him quickly move through the ranks. And then when the alien threat finally arrives, the main character is captain of his own battleship. It would've been so simple to just do that, but nope. Without Liam Neeson to give this movie some kind of hope of being remotely watchable, this movie would've gotten under a 10% rating by the very picky Rotten Tomatoes and I wouldn't blame them. The only good part of this movie, besides the last few seconds of time it had left, was the "Old Salts". They were funnier than any other character in the movie and had the best acting talents. 2012 just wasn't a good year for anything.
Taylor Kitsch? Um watch "Lone Survivor" Kitsches's bad acting shins through again in this one, if not for Skarsgard and Liam N's appearance they should have paid people to watch this one. And how can you make a movie about a child's guessing game. Bad subject/topic for a movie combined with Kitsche's continually bad acting I would rather play the game 'Battle ship' than watch the movie "Battle Ship"! If I could give it a 1/3 of one star that is how many stars this film garnered !
Battle ship I am Elijah Smith Jr 3rd, notice i am the original writer for this movie doing it for my woman Robyn Rihanna fenty, it's took me two years to wright this movie from my head of mind thinking about my woman a lot. While i was lock in jail at twin towel jail. It's hurt me not seeing my woman in a very long time which i have not seen her never of the passing years went by. I never got pay of my work. While lock up in jail their. That's the true word of my understanding today 10/16/2016.
This is what would happen if you did a mashup of Spaceballs, Transformers, Independence Day II and Top Gun, only way worse acting and directing. Boy I'll bet they paid Liam Nesson a huge paycheck to get fans of his to drop their guard and waste their time watching this movie. If I had to guess at a target audience it would be U.S. service men, teen boys and younger. But by all means, watch it, as many who already have gave it 4 or more stars. Hahahahaha!!!!
OK film This movie was OK. It had just enough action to last me. But the Rihanna is a bad actor. Some of the script seems unnecessary or out of place, and there is only 1 reference to the game of battleship which the movie was based on. Overall this movie could have done so much better.
Not a DVD buy, but... Battleship wasn't horrible. I heard quite a few reviews saying it was just downright bad, but from my perspective it was lol type funny, action oriented and fast paced. The description "international naval fleet" is a tad misleading, and is in fact my only actual complaint. I wish the movie had had more ship-oriented combat rather just focusing on two, and that from America alone. Other than that I can't complain. Finally, I don't think it was worth 3.99...but it is what it is. If you do watch it, Redbox it.
Kid's movie Just not credible. 12 year old boys would love it. A museum battleship has fuel! And shells for the main guns! And powder bags! I believe aliens attacking before I would believe the plot line of this movie. If you're over 12, don't bother.
Killer SFX Really enjoyed the movie. I (maybe) watch 3 or 4 movies a year, mostly due to the fact that IMO there is nothing but garbage being released for the most part. While this one is not going to make any great strides in changing my opinion, I do have to say that the SFX are pretty awesome. The acting on the other hand, well, let's just say that, Rihanna shouldn't quit her other job just yet. All in all though, it is worth the rental price and popcorn. Hell, I'll even say the price of the gas to go get it.
You Sunken My Faith in Movies Lens flair galore and still annoying as hell, JJ Abrams said he'd stop using them can you? Each character got more annoying then previous one. Could not care if they lived or died. I was hoping for the aliens to win. When they started using the coordinate system to shoot at each other is when I gave up.
Fire!!! Awesome movie! Not only does this movie have action, comedy, and great special effects, but it also has moments that tie into the original Hasbro game that seem perfectly placed. All the actors did a great job with their roles. Seeing Rihanna act suprised me to how well she perfected her character, to the point to where I'd want her on my ship, if I was to command one. Even the "Old Salts" made this movie that much more enjoyable! And lemme just say thank you to our US Navy for effortlessly and tirelessly watching our shores and defending our country. Those who serve today as well as those who served before, may you always be acknowledged, respected, and admired.
Meh Good movie for a teenie bopper. Dialogue is kind of horrendous. Plot is sort of yawnish. Acting on the most part is mediocre. You can see okay CGI anywhere... nothing special about this kind. Can't believe I put my faith in all of you. You all have horrible taste in movies. ^_^
Ripped Off.... My idea of HD is 720p or higher. I blindly made the rental inspite of the critics who use ads to call the people at Google crooks. I really don't need Google to bomb on me. It is the only thing I really trust anymore.
Ready for Crackle at launch. Horrible movie/acting/story. I was waiting for the Mystery Science Theater guys to do a side narrative just to make it interesting. Aliens travel a billion miles through space at lighting speed, yet their ship's major weapons are shredding balls and projectile cylinders that look like the game pegs? This is Battlefield Earth type bad. The CGI graphics were awesome though, so two stars for that.
Great movie I hate people who say a movie is unrealistic! It's a MOVIE! I'm sure these people loved avengers or the batman movies and the are just as unrealistic as any, so shut up about movies being unrealistic
No reason for this movie I didn't expect much from a movie that is clearly just trying to cash in on any intellectual property that still hasn't been turned in to a movie. This movie was abysmal. The characters were flat and so predictable that i saw exactly where the movie was going on the first 20 mins which made watch the rest of the film boring and arduous.
very good if your mind is aged 5. Otherwise you want to watch another movie, not the obvious USA style movie, where the American hero blows up the alien until they save the world. waste of time, and money.
WTF $6.99 for rental??? That is crazy! This movie is worth renting at $3.99 but barely worth buying for $6.99. Google get your head in the game. This pricing structure is ridiculous! I didn't pay $6.99 to see it in the theater. The movie gets 3 stars for being an Okay movie. Google you get 0 stars for a terrible value!
Okay flick Funny at times, slow at times, good and bad. If you watch it for realism you'll hate it. If you just want to smile and enjoy a cheesy action flick you should like it. Glad it came down in price. I refuse to pay more than this for a google rental no matter the ratings.
No... don't... It is a horrible cliche of a movie... notice how there are almost more 1 *'s. I would say its safe to assume the people giving it 5 *'s are paid to or are bots. Save yourself time and money by avoiding this movie or rent it...
I did try! And I was like I was there in the movie, I never act like this b4 like crazy but its good :-) I'm using my Galaxy Nexus. I did try $6.99 and I enjoyed it and I decided to be fan now to Rihanna, Thank You! Google & people made the movie. I wish we could be action like that in real life,saving our planet. Its just wonderful. let's go back to Rihanna part,b4 she was keep singing but this movie looks different the way I feel,and the way I believed & the way she act .Sometimes life is too short so I decided to rent $6.99 & I can't wait, I have alot things to take & to enjoy my lifestyle.aaww oh Yeahhh
Another garbage, cookie-cutter "block-buster" $6.99!!?!? NETFLIX SELL FOR $4.99??!!!?? THIS IS DISGUSTING -- THE GREATEST HUMAN TRAGEDY OF OUR LIFETIME. GOOGLE YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF. I AM REPORTINGYOU TO UN SECURITY COUNCIL FOR HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATION ENJOY YOUR WAR CRIME TRIBUNAL U GREEDYS
Surprisingly good .. But looses one star for unnecessary length (beginning could easily be 10 mins shorter) and just a few too many transformers sounds and f/x - Bay must have felt lazy when he made this. Solid action, decent f/x and great sound. Obviously, don't expect great writing, dialogue or acting... Do expect to be entertained though.
C- I hate it when a director makes our service people look like idiots who got their training at a Boy Scout campout. All due respect to the Boy Scouts. This movie had lots of potential but the director and editor failed in pulling it together.
Holds itself back. The action, effects are superior, no questioning that. The aliens were extremely well done & made to be very realistic as was their technology. The problem with the film is it holds itself back. To much time is wasted between the first few minutes & the aliens showing up. More time should have been given to the aliens & the battle that ensues. Movie wraps up way to quickly & easily. Its like they wasted so much time with the BS background partial character development, that they had to rush the rest.
Great Movie!! Give it a chance If you don't like you're own species, then you won't like this movie. If you love being human, then you should love this movie. Not a huge Rihanna fan either but she was okay. The movie is not about her. It's about people joining together from different cultures, races whatever to fight against threats to our world. I don't know why people keep trippin.
Battleship Needed cuts in the sensational scenes, such as the old veterens standing in sections of the ship like rock musicians on a stage, tilting the. Cigerette vendor over, also the scene when the two captains are runnning up the ship while it was sinking the debris was not characteristic to the type of debris that is consistent to explosions.furthermore everything that is on the bow of a destroyer is welded and strapped down..I am suprised a McDonalds sign didn't come flying down past them..Cuts needed
