Storyline Heading
A battle unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure - This is an action film based on the classic board game, but unlike the game this adds aliens into the mix of military battleships at sea, and so there are a lot of effects. The biggest star here, Liam Neeson, has a very small role as lesser known younger actors Taylor Kitsch and Brooklyn Decker in the lead roles, Rihanna also has a supporting role but doesn't have a song on the soundtrack. The target audience is young males. Some intense action scenes make the film of caution to parents of very young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Battleship is dumb, noisy, and flashy. Expecting anything else would be foolish.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average 'Battleship' is a more entertaining film than the "Transformers" titles, because it has slightly more fully fleshed characters, a better plot and a lot of naval combat strategy.

USA Today Full Review
Average Mostly, Battleship is a noisy, overlong and numbing military-vs.-aliens saga with laughably bad dialogue.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 97 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:They all LOVED "BATTLESHIP."
TEENS:Ten of the eleven reviews are males and they all enjoyed it very much with most loving it. The lone female review was "Excellent."
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great Reviews from both the males and females. Most loved "Battleship," but a small percentage were slightly disappointed.
ADULTS:The male reviews are very good, but not quite great. A few more "Fantastic" reviews and fewer "Very Good" reviews would have been better. The female reviews are slightly better. Still, these reviews indicate that over three-quarters enjoyed "Battleship" very much, or loved it so it's certainly a movie I would recommend.
