pathetic excuse for a movie, supposedly based on the Battleship board game, but they may as well have called it 'Transformers On The Sea' since it's abundantly clear where the story gets it's
Everyone involved in the making of this tripe should be
embarrassed (in fact, Liam Neeson looks it throughout) and Rihanna should stick to her bland, insipid pop music instead of attempting to act, she's excruciatingly bad. She could have at least
sent herself up by saying the line "B-9, what's my name?". She actually may have during a part when my brain switched off. The 'script' really is THAT bad. Films based on video games are bad
enough, without bringing board games into the mix. Battleshit would have been a more honest title.
