Movie: Battleship (2012) Premiere Screening




Synopsis:
Peter Berg (Hancock) produces and directs Battleship, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Inspired by Hasbro's classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper's fiancee; Alexander Skarsgård as Hopper's older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper's crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone's superior (and Sam's father), Admiral Shane. Berg directs this epic action-adventure also produced by Scott Stuber (Couples Retreat), Sarah Aubrey (The Kingdom), Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir of Hasbro (the Transformers franchise), along with Duncan Henderson (Master and Commander). The film is written by Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber (Red).

Review:
Maybe it's because of all the hype around me, it makes me have a high expectation towards this movie. During the character development process (the first 45 minutes), I was feeling very impatient. I only wanted to see the battle part! The visual effects were impressive though but story wise, I have no idea why the aliens doesn't kill certain people. Maybe they only kill people who tries to kill them?

Not as good as I expect but if you compare it with most alien movies, I'd say this is not bad.



Rating: 5/10

P/S: Wait for the after credits! There's a short clip :)

  8. I rather liked Battleship. I played the board game as a kid with my sister. Haha.

    I was wondering how they'll make it into a film and it surpassed my expectations. A popcorn summer flick, don't think too much, just enjoy the action. :)

  10. 5 out of 10? My parents said this was a superb movie, and their opinions are always negative. I've personally not seen this yet, so will judge later k? I accidentally watched the trailer on Astro, wished I hadn't.

  11. Huh? 5 out of 10 only?! I think most people give 8/10 which I think is a bit too high lah. Haha! I give it a 7. The reason I don't give it a 8 is because I find the story nothing much to shout about, but I love the machines, the actions and all the explosions! LOL!!

  15. i saw this movie yesterday and i must say it is quite good for me. The movie is mainly giving tribute to all military who served during WWII, thus the missouri battleship is more chiooo than the the latest high-tech ship in the movie LOL.

    anyway, I enjoy this movie :D

  20. Only 5/10? Friendship... over. Wakakaa jaz kidin.

    I think it's because like what you said, a lot of hype about the movie. That makes your expectation so high, right. Because like me, I didn't know anything about the movie other than it's about aliens and Rihanna's in it. Hehee.
