Movie: Battleship (2012)
Overall Rating: 3.5 / 5
General Impression: Making a movie adaptation from a game can't be easy, but I guess somebody thought "If we can do it with Transformers, we can do it with Battleship." While the original game was one country against another, I thought it was clever to add a Sci Fi element. Other than Liam Neeson, I wasn't a fan of any of the other actors (no, not even Rihanna as an actress) and so I couldn't connect with any of the characters. However, the action scenes were stunning, the hat tip to the old Battleship commercials with the old sonar, and getting the old veterans to fire up the USS Missouri were some worthwhile moments.
What made it cool for me was that Christmas 2011 I had actually been to Hawaii and stood on the decks of the Missouri Battleship.
