Trivia

The destroyers in the movie are Arleigh Burke class destroyers. The USS Hopper (DDG-70) is an Arleigh Burke class destroyer named after Rear Admiral "Amazing Grace" Hopper, who also gives her surname to the film's main character and his brother. Its home port is Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. See more »

Goofs

When the full reverse command was given, an underwater view showed the propellers reversing their rotation. Arleigh Burke destroyers utilize reversible pitch propellers and therefore do not change their rotational direction during reversing maneuvers, they simply change the pitch of the blades to provide reversing thrust.

So Promising - So disappointing
12 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are 3 hugely anticipated block-busters this year and Battleship was the first one to be released. I had expectations of watching this at that cinema a few times and getting it on blue ray - this is my type of movie!; or at least that was the expectation. With such great promotional footage and Liam Neeson heading the cast, it had to be great. In reality, Neeson has almost a bit part (in fact you see most of it in the promotional adverts), clearly there to increase sales of the movie; with the bulk of the 'acting' coming from Taylor Kitsch.

A ludicrous start with Kitsch playing a 27 year loser who, on the recommendation of his brother (Alexander Scarsgard) joins the Navy, suddenly to become at Lt Cdr - The script is clearly written by someone with no military knowledge or experience and that the actions, demeanour and interaction with all that are supposed to be military personnel, is a non sense. It makes Top Gun look believable! However, it gets worse;with aliens that have made there way to earth with great looking craft,that impressively rise from the ocean (great CGG) - you see it on the commercials for the movie, the only weapon they possess are melee type Armour - pretty ridiculous

really and by this point the movie has lost any form of credibility. The outcome is obvious from the first few minutes and I certainly wouldn't go back for a repeat viewing. It's still probably worth a watch if you can't resist, but don't buy any pop corn; there's enough corn in this movie!
