Review
BATTLESHIP is full of action, but with thrills, explosions and even pretty cool visuals. I actually thought that the film was quite great and now instead was actually a disappointment. Quite similar to the first TRANSFORMERS movie by Michael Bay (click here), it's actually based on a board game which was the main problem that made this picture look ridiculous and adding it with aliens and done by director Peter Berg isn't going to help either. I'm no huge fan of the singer Rihanna, but her acting debut is just alright, I only praise the other actors that did a good job on the movie such as Taylor Kitsch and Liam Neeson.

For those who have played the Battleship game, I thought I was going ask you of seeing this movie adaptation, but I didn't really know that BATTLESHIP was either good, average or bad and let me get this straight, I changed my mind and it did sank.

Star rating: (3/5) Average
