The film shows one of the ship's main battery turrets rotating roughly 180 degrees in only a few seconds. Additionally, one the 16" rifles is shown elevating at a rapid rate. Both are inaccurate. The turrets rotate at around 4 degrees per second therefore it would require at least 45 seconds to spin the turret to face the opposite direction. Each 16" gun barrel with breech weighs around 270,000 pounds, they elevate at a much slower rate than shown. See more »

Well, all I wanted to say on this movie has already been covered by other posters. This is the sort of movie easy to mess up but oh so difficult to pull off. Grab a bucket of popcorn and a drink, suspend all of the plethora of questions and total disbelief that this movie will inevitably bring up; and sit back and watch a Summer blockbuster in Spring, which has been well done and is fairly well acted, given the paucity of subject matter - an ageing board game.
To be honest it is a fun movie that doesn't seem as long as its' 2 hours Is it formulaic?, is it fairly predictable? Absolutely, but is it fun, oh yeah - go and see it; it's the panned movie that is a hidden gem for those that don't care too much about plot but just love a good show.
