"Battleship" shows how to Hollywood makes the best: a special effects only.
Whole rest is a extremelly poor movie. Want to see what Battleship offers? See trailers.

Best AI I have ever seen:
IJN Takao dodged 11 torpedoes with zig-zaging and active speed changes, including stop and reverse run.

No lets face it, the best scene is at the end with the Australian Fighter Support :Smile_hiding:

Plus an ANZAC class frigate seen close to the start :Smile-_tongue:

I do like the slogan: "When modern weapons fail, it is time to bring int he big guns."

Like it or not the basics of the guns like on the Iowa are barely any different from cannons placed on our wooden sailing ships, tube, projectile and propellant :)

I loved the Missouri's revival in that film. In a way, Wargaming is doing the same thing with more, even older ships!

The film is good, but I am a critic to some scenes:

First, WHY ARE ALIENS (With advanced armor(Or Armour for internationals)) BEING DESTROYED BY HUMANS (With less advanced technology)?

Second, the fleet of ships are mainly Battleships, where are the Aircraft Carriers or Frigates?  There are only battleships (Yeah, I also know the movie is titled "Battleship")

Third, the Aliens should have used a Annihilation bomb or something to wipe out all life on Earth, and took over it's terrain and tera-formed it. (Well, thats my stance on what should have happened.)

And finally Fourth, This is a Action/Rom-Com movie instead of a pure action movie we all wanted.

Anyway, it did get me on the edge of my seat watching it, and I like the "Might Moe's" appearance in the movie, it made it a bit more historical.

Anyway, that's my thoughts on it!

In order:

1) The "isolation dome" and interplanetary travel are the only ways that the aliens are more advanced than the humans; their weaponry is only slightly more advanced than ours, if at all. Also, the 5-ship fleet they send is a scouting mission, if you will, with enough armament to defend itself if needed. They are not an actual war fleet.

2) The aliens have an "isolation dome" which prevents matter from entering or leaving it, including ships and jets. This is established fairly early into the movie after the dome appears.

3)As I said above, they sent a scouting force to determine how much of a subsequent force would be needed to conquer the planet, because the species is busy with military affairs closer to home. Their communication ship crashed, though, so they needed the satellite in Hawaii to send a signal back.

I liked it a lot actually, only because I knew it was bad to begin with. when you watch it knowing its bad and not even caring about the story line then you just get a bunch of naval warfare scenes, not many of those(even if these are horribly inaccurate)

Umm, btw, none of those vessels (excluding the Missouri) are battleships. Battleships have been phased out of modern navies since the 1950's.

I'm sorry do you have any knowledge of Modern Navies? if you did then you would know that they were never just comprised of battleships they are centered around Air Craft carriers, oh wait and have been since the second world war. These days there are allot of Frigates, destroyers cruisers and subs in worlds navies. AND there was only 1 battleship in the movie, the smaller ships were destroyers with if you payed attention the carrier battle group been stuck outside the magical wall.

Did you pay attention to the movie? that was not the aim they were trying to get their communications back up, hence they avoided killing any unarmed people.

In your opinion, not everyone's.
