Available today on DVD and Blu-ray, BATTLESHIP might well find the respect it missed at the box office in the home video marketplace. An apocalyptic sci-fi adventure that has the navy doing its best to ward off attacking aliens hell bent on destroying the planet, BATTLESHIP is a jingoistic mess of a movie (with only a couple of redeeming qualities) that appears to exist for no other reason than to blow stuff up. Directed by PETER BERG from a script by brothers ERICH and JON HOEBER, the cast of this epic CGI-fest are LIAM NEESON, TAYLOR KITSCH, ALEXANDER SKARSGARD, RIHANNA and BROOKLYN DECKER.
During interviews to promote the original release of the movie, hunky star TAYLOR KITSCH insisted that there is actually a love story between his and DECKER’S characters at the heart of the movie (if those darned aliens just hadn’t gotten in the way). (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
