Battleship sure is a 'huha' huge movie. With the advertisement saying it was from the same producer for the Transformer or what so ever, people tend to categorized this movie a good movie even before they watch it. They even did not realize the reality that Transformer end up being a lame movie in the last 2 franchise.
The ads were great. Looking at the trailer before the movie comes out make me feel that I must watch this movie. This could be the best of movie for this year....hardly it will.
I end up watching this movie last Sunday. Before I enter the cinema hall, I already realize something odd... there is children around 10-12 years old everywhere. Parent brought all of their small children to enter the cinema hall. It gave me a hint, this movie is targeting this age group of audience.
The movie turn out to be ok. Nothing much except explosion, explosion, and more explosion, until you fed up with it and I fell asleep in the middle of the battle with lots of explosion. We tend not to sleep during explosion but in this movie, we will.
The story is simple, easy to understand even if you did not pay much attention to it. For 10 years old child, this is necessary. The acting is a little bit dull. A big alien battleship land on earth and destroying humanity with an advance technology supposed to give us fear, but in this movie, the actor does not seem to give us that kind of expression. All of them look like nothing happen and even throw a jokes in the middle of a war with well equipped aliens? The jokes is necessary cause without it, it will become more boring until the end. At least we can laugh watching an alien conquering the earth.
A few more explosion and... the movie end up with a happy ending. So nice. An advance aliens came to our earth and show us that they have a tough weapon to be defeated, and we defeated a group of them then we are all rest assure that they will not come to us again. The ending was typical. Alien lose, human win, tired of it.
I did not like this movie much. What is the difference watching this one and the other alien invading movie. We always win, they always stupid. Even with their super advance technology, they still stupid. So stupid until they cannot shoot an enemy in front of them. This movie is a very typical movie. For those who like a good explosion, this is the movie for you. If you are like me, that prefer a food storyline, a proper climax and proper unique ending, maybe you will keep your money for the other movie.
I like Hunger Games better.
