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 🙂
