    If you suspend all logic....eh, it was an OK ride.

    Being a huge Battleship fan (the actual ships) the footage (some of it is real) and CG of the Missouri was pretty cool. The imagry of a lone American battlewagon off to take on the Alien massive ship was a cool moment. Some of the other naval scenes were fun.

    I am glad I took the time to take my son to see the real battle ship last year.

    USS Missouri in Pearl Harbor.

    That is the part I can't get over from the previews. I can usually clear my mind to get into almost any movie, but there is one item here I just can't let go. If this is some massive Alien ship that has been underwater the whole time, why doesn't it just come up straight through the middle of the battleship, or fire at it from underwater and be done with it. I just can't get over that part.
    Since I haven't seen the movie that is maybe explained, but I doubt it, and it just makes it look really cheesy from seeing the previews.

    The previews dont convey much of any story...just visuals.

    I cannot suspend my disbelief enough to make me want to pay to see this movie.

    I was hoping for even more action.

    When this one hits the $4.99 bin at IGA I may pick it up. Na, probably not.

    Avengers was super extra, fantastic. Battleship is a fun, fun ride.

    I don't get the critics; since when are summer blockbusters supposed to be Shakesperean in depth.

    Go see the movie, see some real guns. You'll enjoy it.

    Interesting. Isn't it supposedly based on the game? It's been a few years, but I don't recall any aliens.

    There are some "elements" of the game in the movie. In terms of tracking the aliens and by allegory through the alien anti ship weapon.

    Again....this movie is somewhat fun but you have to turn off all thinking, all of it in order to have that fun.

    I dismissed the movie outright. Now that I know it involves aliens I want to see it even less.

    It's on my list of movies to see when it hits Redbox.

    I've seen a preview for Prometheus that I think I'll go see when it hits theaters. The preview reminded me of Event Horizon.

    If an alien ship can form a force field......... conventional weapons can't beat it.

    All this WE WIN WE WIN!! stuff when fighting aliens is just too outlandish.

    At its conclusion, does the alien commander yell out, "You sank my battleship!"

    Independence Day: Air campaign

    Battle L.A. = Independence Day: Ground war

    Battleship = Independence Day: Battle at Sea

    They're just fun, summer movies. Take them for what they are.

    It won't be long until there comes a so-called summer blockbuster movie that is just one continuous explosion. No bothersome plot, or irritating dialogue, or even actors... Just an explosion that lasts for an hour and thirty minutes. (or two hours and thirty- movies sure seem long these days.)

    And people will love it. I can already see the threads... "Wow, did you see Explodageddon? That movie kicked ass! MUCH better than Blastblaster 4: The Blastening!"
