Battleship (2012)

Written By Erich Hoeber, Jon Hoeber
Directed By Peter Berg
Starring: Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard & Brooklyn Decker

A film about that classic board game we all cheated at as kids.

This film has amazing qualities. It starts out with a young navy boy with lots of potential making things difficult for himself and everyone else.  The film harkens to a modern day Top Gun with a hint of irony considering it’s the navy instead of the air force.

But before you know it the movie takes a wild turn, for the better, and aliens attack. This no one sees coming and makes for a great plot twist. Soon, our fearless maverick, Skarsgard, becomes captain of the only ship in position to defend the world from eminent invasion. (sounds good doesn’t it?)

This movie has great special effects, amazing action sequences and it stays true to the tactics of the original board game. The cinematography is nicely controlled and the tension of the film is well balanced. Rihanna, the music pop star, does a great job as an actress in this action flick. Everything about this movie is good except the acting. They don’t do a great job with the acting. But everything else is classic and fun.

Top 5 Rating. Go see this movie if you can. It’s a fun one.
