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 crew mate 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.

Computer Graphics
I can't deny that the graphics are top notch. The moment the screen plays I told my girlfriend, wow! The quality of the film running and the graphics are very clear that I thought its 2D or something better! 
I get amazed when the alien's battleship came out.

The alien's suit is pretty cool, not really special but it will be something like Iron Man? 
By the way, it's kinda interesting how the CG players draw out the alien. You will get to see their face.

Taylors Kitsch - Alex Hopper
 Perform well with good expressions, doesn't seem fake to me. I should say he is experience!

 This movie is definitely underused of Rihanna, eventually when you thought Rihanna is not gonna perform well in this movie, she did perform averagely, consider her expression, movement and dialogue.

Tadanobu Asano as Captain Nagata
great supporting role in this movie, funny scenes with him appearing.

There are lots of loopholes in this movie.
Remember how the U.S Navy found the first alien and start to take out their mask?
The next moment, 1 troop of aliens went into the U.S Navy battleship and took the alien away. Why can't the alien just kill all the U.S Navy at that moment? They knew the US Navy is harming their own allies.

Next, how the old-retired US Navy suddenly appear at a museum battleship, how they start the battleship in such a short time frame, how can a museum battleship still works?

More loopholes can be found at HERE 

In case, you didn't notice, how they blend in the END of the story with
Brooklyn Decker contacting Taylors Kitsch - Alex Hopper where the aliens are using the satellite.

Action scenes are pretty good!
 how the US Navy fight against the alien! See how the 2 round blades above, running the whole Hawaii, causing chaos, bridge breakdown, cars breakdown and etc.

Also take note on action scenes like, battleship shooting missiles.

Also it is interesting to see how the actors interact with each other, team up to fight the aliens.

I have to say that after reviewing all those action-Computer graphics movie, as long as it is entertaining, good graphics, able to let audience give your graphics (like Transformer and GI Joe) a WOW! That is enough to get back your return.
I really did enjoy the movie, how action-fied is this movie, how I like the CG graphics, see-ing how a battleship vs alien's battleship is entertaining!
 Try this movie in IMax 2D, I think you will be amazed! 

Oh yeah, 1 question here, did you guys hear about Malaysia is also one of the Navy teams? I remember Liam Neeson saying Japan, Malaysia, US and etc is part of the exhibition Navy crew.


Plot: 5/10
Graphics: 9.5/10
Dialogue: 5.5/10

Overall: 7/10
The review is based on my personal opinion.
Thanks to ChurpChurp for the invites!


  1. I used to watch alot this type of movie.
    You can feel the loopholes rightawat, XDDD
    I wonder why alien stop attack when got chance.
    During the time US ship out of weapon, that is the best time,
    but they stop.
    It looks like they never harm anyone without offensive.
    my point of view, Transformers is the best XD.

  2. Malaysian Navy? Is it Fxxking joke? They cant even deal with the priates in the Melacca Strait. What abunch of muslim jerks!

  3. my frenz all said very nice!
