Look, it’s not the fact that Battleship is being made into a movie. Well, it is that, but here is my big problem with the film: it doesn’t make any sense! The ONLY thing this movie has in common with the board game is the fact that it does contain battleships. That’s all. I don’t remember my carrier being attacked by a giant, flying alien ship. I never used the phrase, “Your alien ship sunk my battleship!” Down Periscope, the 1996 comedy film starring Kelsey Grammer, should’ve been called Battleship. That had more to do with the game than this crap.
