Now that you've seen it, what did you think? C-4. Hit? Or miss? You played the game as a kid, now it's time to see the movie (or maybe not). Arriving in theaters is Universal's attempt at adapting a board game, specifically Battleship, into an explosive summer blockbuster directed by Peter Berg, starring an eclectic cast. Taylor Kitsch leads the way, with Alexander Skarsgård, Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker and Liam Neeson, too. But is it even remotely entertaining or just terrible? Does this fleet of battleships sink quickly? How was Rihanna? If you've seen it, leave a comment below with your thoughts on Peter Berg's Battleship.
Note: I haven't seen and don't care to see Battleship, it just doesn't look like anything I want to watch. So instead, here's a quote from our own Ben Pearson's review on Filmonic: "Battleship, which is not only one of the worst blockbusters in recent memory, but also one of the most idiotic movies I’ve ever seen. It makes John Carter look like The Godfather. It’s not that the plot is stupid – we’ve seen alien invasion movies before, and some of them are actually good – but the filmmakers seem to be the only ones who don’t realize they’re making a movie out of a damned board game. [This] was dead in the water before it even left port."
