    Way to go, Battleship: Take the crassest of cynical junk, slather it in jingoism and sell it as rah-rah fun for right-wingers. show more

    Mostly, Battleship is a noisy, overlong and numbing military-vs.-aliens saga with laughably bad dialogue. show more

    Visually stunning. The graphics in this movie were amazing. But the storyline greatly needed help. Some parts were very over the top borderlining on campy. But it is geared toward young boys and makes for a fun rental.
