The Battle for Earth Begins at Sea
When mankind beams a radio signal into space, a reply comes from ‘Planet G’, in the form of several alien crafts that splash down in the waters off Hawaii. Lieutenant Alex Hopper is a weapons officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones, part of an international naval coalition which becomes the world's last hope for survival as they engage the hostile alien force of unimaginable strength. While taking on the invaders, Hopper must also try to live up to the potential his brother, and his fiancée's father, Admiral Shane, expect of him.

Not the most sensical or realistic of movies, but I heavily enjoyed it. It starts off slow but it quickly gets more exciting. I like how mysterious and powerful the aliens are pictured, you don't even get to see what they look like until pretty late in the movie.

Overall, id say from a true critique standpoint -- it's pretty bad. That being said -- I enjoyed it, and I was far from bored. It's a shame Alexander Skarsgård wasn't in it very long, because his acting was indeed impressive. Rihanna sucks.

Battleship is a prototypical summer actioner. It's nowhere nearly as good as The Avengers, but as a very different type of film is still worth seeing if big-budget mayhem is your thing. If you're okay with a movie that doesn't stimulate your brain and requires only that you go along for the fast-paced ride and enjoy the show, Battleship is surprisingly entertaining.
