MOVIE: Battleship (April 2012)

It’s been a while since I last saw a movie that has the seas as the setting – remeber Crimson Tide, Master and Commander, and of course the Pirates of the Caribbean series. If you love these kind of movies, you would really want to see BATTLESHIP. This movie is definitely not like Crimson Tide which was limited in the submarine, nor like Master and Commander and Pirates that involves sword fights and cannons, but BATTLESHIP is more of a sci-fi flick and is set in modern times.

If you’re thinking about your childhood and thinking of the classic board game name “Battleship”, well you might be surpised that this movie is brought to us by the same creators (Hasbro) that made that board game. Hasbro also brought us Transformers. Since this was from the classic board game, I’m pretty sure we’ll see more strategic battles with regards to the ships and that it won’t be just pure gunfights and other action scenes. Liam Neeson is one of the main cast (hell yeah!!), also with him is Taylor Kitsch who also starred in this year’s JOHN CARTER. This film would also be the acting debut of R&B singer – Rihanna. This April, this movie – BATTLESHIP should be on your watch list.

Peter Berg (Hancock) 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.

Synopsis – “In the Hawaiian Islands, an international naval fleet at Pearl Harbor engage in a dynamic and intense battle against an alien species known as “The Regents”. The aliens come to planet Earth on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with the naval fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans’ so the audience knows exactly where the opponent’s ships are.
