Battleship [videorecording]

    Review by:  Lisa

Title:  Battleship [videorecording]

Starring:  Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgård, Rihanna, Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Decker

Collection:  Movies

NASA sends a signal to an extrasolar planet showing conditions similar to Earth and then an intense battle develops when an international fleet of ships, on a naval war games exercise, comes across an alien armada.

Based on the classic board game of the same name, Battleship was a movie that I was not sure I was going to like. Would it be another typical summer flick with a lot of pyrotechnics and very little substance?  The answer is no.  Battleship is not Shakespeare by any stretch of the imagination, but it is good fun.  I was also feeling patriotic about midway through (and I don’t want to spoil it for you).   If you are looking for a good movie to watch with friends this weekend over a bowl of popcorn, give this a try.
