Battleship
 
Liked it. Has lots of action and explosions (Shakespeare it ain't). Anyone who enjoyed Battle L.A. should enjoy this. People who didn't, might (who can tell).

Two words: Chicken Burrito

Ive heard its bad. I enjoyed BattleLA for the effects but not sure id spend too much to do it again. This will likely be a RedBox BR for me. Thanks for your thoughts!

I don't understand why this movie is a domestic bomb. It must be because people automatically assume it'll suck because it's based on a board game. But I saw it yesterday and it was surprisingly ass kicking. So much better than TF2 and probably better than TF3 too.

For a 2 hr and 10 min flick, the time sure did fly by. If you can enjoy mindless action movies, this one is high on my list. Can't wait for the BD.

I'll wait for BD. with the comments offered. I hardly do theaters anymore.

This movie is worse than Dark of the Moon

I enjoyed it at the theater (took father in law for fathers day), and just had a blast at home (great audio). I also thought Dark of the Moon was a good flick, Im not sure what a lot of you expect from popcorn movies. They are a simple equation, and I most people I talked too have been surprised by Battleship.

I also watch the Battleship Movie. It was fantastic movie. Battleship is ber none of the worst movie I have seen in recent years. The sound track to the movie is okay composition wise. The alien's are so dumb that it's implausible.

Saw the Battleship movie on a free blu ray dvd library loan yesterday and it was laughably awful ! Cartoonishly bad special effects , horrible acting , ridiculous plot , corny predictable dialogue , dopiest looking aliens ever , and Liam Neeson barely appearing apparently just to collect a paycheck ala Nicholas Cage . Good for a laugh if you can rent it cheap or get it free from the local library , otherwise wait for it to be on tv which it probably will be in a few months . I don't expect much from B movie director Peter Berg , but this one was horrible even for him !

It must have a draw, our BB has been out of copies for a while.

Well things get blowed up real good , which would draw in the Transformer fans who obviously didn't bother to waste movie money on this turd . There is an after the closing credits scene which is so stupid it fits in with the rest of the movie . The most unbelievable thing to me is that there is an actual Blockbuster store open somewhere within a reasonable distance ! All gone within 30 miles from where I live - all gone ! And I live in northern NJ which is hardly the sticks .

Sound track is "okay". you guys crack me up. If the soundtrack is just "OK", you need to upgrade your audio system.

Haters gonna hate...

The only thing dumber than this movie is US for watching it. One of the worst I've seen. At least I did not spend any $ to watch it like I did Blair Witch Project . . .:banghead:

A slow to start, filled with BS and studid, it gets a little better. action scenes are really good and belivable. I don't know why it bombed. It's always out at my BB. Took me weeks to get a BD copy

It bombed because it was absolutely awful . Don't get all the people who still depend on an ancient video rental system like a video store . What will all these people do when the last Blockbuster has closed ? Move into modern times like everyone else I expect with online movie rentals and Redbox - both much cheaper than Blockbuster is right now !
