Trivia

The movie is based on the Milton Bradley game "Battleship", which has been manufactured since 1931. Some of the artillery in the film is shaped like the pegs used in the game. The original paper and pencil version of the game predates World War I. See more »

Goofs

A scientists would know (or likely correctly guess) that the material comprising the alien antennas would be a compound or an alloy of metals or plastic and NOT an "element." There would be no reason to look for them to be a single element as even human construction materials are themselves composed of several or more elements in a compound or an alloy. See more »

Good enough
16 July 2012 | by See all my reviews

It's really not a 10 but I gave it that for all the 1s and 2s it was getting..Check your brain at the door and watch things blow up...I liked it enough to comment. I also liked how they used real military and vets for this film..they can't act very well but you'll find it in your heart to forgive that..too many "SH*T" bombs in the movie..I think if you make a movie about "SH*T" then you can say it...other wise leave out all the bad language, same goes for "F**K": they call that porn..ha.. Thanks for reading..enjoy the movie... If you don't like Sci-Fi, explosions, or the NAVY, do not watch this movie. Working on my 10th line and hope not to get an error..
