Bryan Lienesch67 - To my surprise, Battleship has its moments. It's also utterly ridiculous at times, just as I suspected.

Dan O'Neill20 - Battleship definitely thrills with its loud explosions and fun direction from Peter Berg, but the script takes away from everything else with its overt silliness, lines that seem like they are jokes in and of itself, and characters that dont make any sense but are just here to give us people to care about and root on to win the good fight. Michael Bay will be back people, get ready.

CinemaVisitor Erik10 - Even though Transformers was bad the amazing CGI was worth paying for. This one doesn't even look good...
