BATTLESHIP ( M)
Stars: Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard
Director: Peter Berg
Available: Now on DVD and BD
A movie based on Battleship, the board game . . . Hollywood is off its meds again! What’s next, Connect Four: The Movie? How about a feature film on Hungry Hippos? I shouldn’t joke, they are probably in production. Obviously, the game is only a loose inspiration and the action- packed romp about the earth’s best naval ships battling it out with alien invaders is not all bad. It’s throwaway stuff, cheesy and stupid – but it’s a visual stunner and as schlocky ‘‘ popcorn’’ entertainment, it gets the job done.
Extras: ½ Just a video game trailer.
