MOVIE REVIEW: BATTLESHIP (Peter Berg, 2012)

Liam Neeson and Taylor Kitsch owe me a lot of money. The former has (so far) starred in three dismal movies this year (the other two are The Grey and Wrath of the Titans). The latter, on the other hand, has been in two clunkers so far (the other one being John Carter). I hope they’re incredibly rich now. It’s time to pay me back.

Anyway, I really don’t expect much from a movie based on a board game. How do you possibly adapt that kind of material? If you’re a fan of special effects, explosions, clunky dialogue, and Rihanna, then you’re in luck.

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆
