I've noticed a lot of people flipping out saying that Battleship is like the Transformers movies. When I saw Battleship in theatres, I didn't think that much of Transfomers when I saw it. The only things similar, in my opinion, are the robot sounds and the explosions. Plus, there are ENORMOUS differences. 1. Transformers was a toyline. Battleship was a BOARD game. 2. The aliens are not robots like the Transformers are. They're human-sized living, breathing organisms in exo-suits. The Transformers ARE robots. 3. The film is NOT directed by Michael Bay. It's Peter Berg doing this film. So, yeah, I personally didn't think it was that much like Transformers. I thought Battleship was OK. Hate me all you want for it, my opinion's not changing.
