Saw Battleship last night it was better than I expected.
astig nung nag "sea-drift" ang USS Missouri.
overall the movie is very entertaining mas lalo ko siguro nagustuhan since sa 2D ko sya pinanood at mahilig ako sa movies na involved ang Army, Navy at Air Force. lol medyo nabitin lang ako sa ending. (may sequel kaya?)

I posted a review for this movie dun sa summer challenge. Sana i-merge na lang please.
my Dad was at the theater wearing a command ballcap from DDG-86 because his ..um... friend is at the ship DDG-86
a lot of audience ask questions about his ballcap and he said he's proud that the US NAVY are doing things that makes them worldwide worthy like keeping invaders away from foreign land, combatting pirates, and eliminating Bin Laden by SEALS.
BRP Del Pilar has no battle sea capability. it is only a nearly decommissioned, life-expired patrol ship gave by the USS Coast Guards. it will only get sink by aliens or friendly fire in seconds.
Never ever dream about that piece of floating junk going into real battle against US or China, or NOKOR.
ang ganda ng special effects, astig I never expected na ganito pala kaganda yung movie coz di ko naappreciate yung trailer.
Battleship was better than I expected — which was for it to suck. Excellent special effects, cliched but decent story, no annoying scenes or characters (*cough* Transformers trilogy *cough*) and a few plot holes. But the self-deprecating humor was the best part like spoofing Michael Bay's power walk signature with senile veterans and having the scientist snark "why do you talk like that?" in response to a lame one liner
O/T question though: ano yung 2D? We watched this in Trinoma and I was under the impression that all non-3D movies are 2D until I saw the distinct label, the price (even more expensive than the THX-powered Cinema 7) and noticed the rich and detailed almost 1080p living room quality picture.
The movie was meh for me. I always take movies with military themes with a little seriousness. If Transformers 3 was stupid for me. This one scores just a bit better. Like Transformers 3, Battleship is filled with cliches, plotholes and a display of Hollywood tactics at its best.
Where do I start. [spoiler start]At the beginning of the film, the aliens almost immediately lost their chance of victory. Notwithstanding the loss of their communications ship (the one that crashed in Hong Kong), when they erected that impenetrable shield over Hawaii, they only had 3 Arleigh Burke destroyers (JDS Myoko is a Kongo-class, a modified Arleigh) and U.S. forces stationed on Hawaii to contend with.
They could have destroyed the 3 ships during the first contact scene, but inexplicably, didn't do so despite the humans having fired the first shot.
When the aliens' flying wheels hit Hawaii, they were as bad as the Japanese during WW2, leaving vital military assets intact.
Alex is out of place in some scenes. As a senior officer, he shouldn't have been on the launch that scouted the unidentified surface contact. Later on, as Captain of the John Paul Jones, he shouldn't have led the security detail to hunt the alien infiltrator.
Like the Napoleon quote in the movie, "the secret of war lies in communications". The aliens failed in this aspect. They managed to gain favorable ground, lay waste to the land but they failed to guard their communications. They failed in the same manner as the ID4 and Battle LA aliens. Maybe every alien invader should read Napoleon before launching an invasion.
Toward the end, I don't know how a bunch of old men aided by the remnants of the Jones prep an old battleship decommissioned for about 20 years in just an hour. There's no way the U.S. Navy would allow live ordnance (16 in shells) and charger to be stowed in the Missouri.
Perhaps the only thing that interested me was the night engagement featuring Nagata's ingenious use of tsunami warning buoys as radar for the Jones' ASROCs. [spoiler end]
Overrated to those who gave a 10/10 rating for this movie, but this is worth to be seen on a big screen.
Definitely better than I expected, despite what I thought was a slow start for the movie.
...and Brooklyn Decker was RAWR!!!
@Fallschirmjager: we all agree the movie has a lot of plot-holes and your point have some valid argument ( like the Live armaments in a decommission US Missouri)
but again this movie is way much better than , tf3, Battle of LA, and all other aliens invasion films i have seen yup including (ID4)..
there were scenes that left me saying "duh"
taylor sucks in acting
the techonology of the aliens were so advanced they were able to put a force field, but how in the hell that earth missiles can destroy that alien ship.
saving grace i say would be the sfx.
Loved the movie and watched it with my dad. He could relate kasi ex-Navy pa siya. Astig na Arleigh Burke-class destroyers ang ginamit, plus isang barko ng JMSDF... and when the Mighty Mo went to action, BAM! Haven't really seen even one of the cannons light off since Under Siege.
Unexpected yung homages to the game, like the placement ng ships before the first battle then yung paggamit ng tsunami buoys para mahanap yung aliens. And mukhang Tomahawks ang ginamit for that fight. VLF system yung ASROCs nila.
Yes may plot holes nga. Although I hope former Missouri crew ang dumating in that scene, nakakapagtaka na may live shells siya for a decommissioned ship...and to think production on 16inchers may have been gone for a long time.May be understandable na in a defensive posture yung aliens early on but it beggars belief na they did not press the advantage.
Very poignant yung pagrecognize ni Admiral Shane doon sa mga war veterans na present at the RIMPAC ceremony. Yung double amputee na kasama ni Samantha is an actual war veteran and a lieutenant colonel managing a program for wounded soldiers. Peter Berg made a good choice casting him - had real value fighting the alien, kaya mong lumaban kahit wala ka nang paa.
Although i like this movie, i cant get over why the enemy ship settled for water battle if they arrived on Earth flying. I know their ship can fly. But if they maximized this capability: GAME OVER.
It was good. I'd give it 9/10 because I enjoyed it a lot. The trailer sucks though.
Twas OK. I enjoyed it. Especially the sound track. Just leave your brains at the door or you'll be disappointed (like some PExers were) .
