Movie review: Battleship
Peter Berg produces and directs Battleship, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Inspired by Hasbro’s classic naval combat game, Battleship stars Taylor Kitsch as Lt. Alex Hopper, a Naval officer assigned to the USS John Paul Jones; Brooklyn Decker as Sam Shane, a physical therapist and Hopper’s fiancée; Alexander Skarsgård as Hopper’s older brother, Stone, Commanding Officer of the USS Sampson; Rihanna as Petty Officer Raikes, Hopper’s crewmate and a weapons specialist on the USS John Paul Jones; and international superstar Liam Neeson as Hopper and Stone’s superior (and Sam’s father), Admiral Shane
- Great cast ,all the performances were on point. I initaily thourght rihanna would be used as mere eye-candy but she ended up having a pretty good role.
- Excellent story in which you will genuinely not know what will happen next which makes for an exciting movie .
- Great action scenes
- It takes some time for the plot to begin
Alex Hopper: you gonna die, I’m gonna die, we all gonna die. just not today…
Petty Officer Raikes: My dad said they’d come. He said we ain’t alone. He said one day we’d find them. Or they’d find us.
I went into this movie with low expectations ,but am happy to say i was blown away by this movie . The best parts of the movie were the unpredictability and the intense action scenes. It is a good summer movie for a saturday afternoon.
