Milton Bradley's enduringly popular strategic board game makes the leap to the big screen in HANCOCK director Peter Berg's epic sci-fi adventure pitting an international naval fleet against an army of invading aliens. When the two forces find themselves evenly matched, each must rely on strategy and cunning in order to emerge the victor. Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard head-up a cast also featuring Liam Neeson, Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker, and Tadanobu Asano.
"BATTLESHIP is a more entertaining film than the TRANSFORMERS titles, because it has slightly more fully fleshed characters, a better plot and a lot of naval combat strategy. (Chicago Sun-Times)
"[T]he filmmakers have build an unexpectedly sincere salute to the awesome responsibilities of today's U.S. Navy as well as to the heroic work of veterans who came before." -- Grade: B+ (Entertainment Weekly)
