    I really wonder if people would have a different initial reaction to the movie if it was called something different. Sure "Battleship" carries name recognition from the game but I don't think it's always a positive one when people hear they are making a movie about it (or maybe more appropriately something like "inspired by")

    Surely the only way they could whore out a board game and make it into a toy line is by adding transforming Alien spacecraft.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this line turns out to be a cross between G.I. Joe and Transformers Stealth Force.

    Yeah it is Transformers at sea. A moronic, nonsensical movie with lots of CGI and 'splosions. Easy pass.

    That looks like a Bayformers movie without any Transformers. So pretty much everything I hated about them. In other words, it looks more awful than any other movie in recent memory.

    Did they actually have to buy the "Battleship" name to make this? The game is about nothing. You can make a movie about alien ships and the Navy fighting them and not have to say that it's inspired by the freaking board game! Are movie-goers actually going to eat this up?? ZOMG BATTLESHIP NO WAYZ!!

    The funny thing is, I can see people who LOVE Bay's Transformers saying this looks like crap. When it looks like the same exact kind of movie.

    Man, they weren't lying when they said it looks like Transformers 4. That was ridiculous. :lol  Can't believe Liam Neeson signed up for this crap.

    The trailer made it look like two different movies. The first half of the trailer has almost nothing to do with the second half...
