u watching this? I think this is the first time I'd see man fight alien at sea o_0 I wonder if they'll have to yell grid coordinates when they attack? :P
It looks either crazy enough to be good, or just plain stupid.
I probably rent it or watch in from TV in few years, it looks sort of cool, but nah.
Okay, sorry for double post, but I just returned from the movie and this thread deserves a bump.
BATTLESHIP IS AWESOME
Best corny, unambitious fun I had in the cinema for ages! Despite my assumptions, it never takes itself too seriously, has some funny dialogue, the sea battles are not only visualy impressive, but also very engaging narration-wise.. The cliches are there, but far enough apart from eachother that they do not annoy, and actualy work to the movie's credit.
It's by no means a really good movie, but as a campy blockbuster entertainer - It's awesome. Tons of fun, as long as you do not expect anything truly ambitious or groundbreaking.
Battleship was indeed a good film.
I'm just not sure why the aliens required a hull full of at least 30 explosives to destroy the American destroyer, while the Japanese destroyer was sunk with a single hit.
Actually, it didn't just sink, it split into two pieces, and then exploded a few more times for good measure. After one hit. And sank in about 5 seconds.
The American destroyer had a line of explosives buried into the length of the hull, stayed afloat long enough to evacuate the crew, and sank slower than the Titanic.
Then aside from the Japanese captain and one or two members showing up intermittently throughout the film, the Japanese crew that were rescued just sort of disappeared until the end.
...Where they served as mere manual labor to move a cannon shell down the hall...
