I Don't Understand the Movie Version of "Battleship"

Posted By on Thu, Jul 28, 2011 at 9:15 AM

Maybe it's too much to ask of the movie adaption of the peg-based guessing game to have a plot or make sense, after all, there wasn't much to work with. Note to the people who make these decisions: you could have just made a movie about ships and saved yourself a lot of money.

However, I don't think I would have expected aliens would be involved:

A contemporary story of an international five-ship fleet engaged in a very dynamic, violent and intense battle against an alien race is known as The Regents. They come from a world similar to ours, and aren’t actually looking to take over humanity or the planet Earth. Instead, they’re on a mission to build a power source in the ocean, which is where they come in contact with a navy fleet. The film will also show us both sides of the story—from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans.

I'm glad someone is finally is going to present the perspective of the aliens. It just seems unfair that the otherworldly invaders never get their say on why they came here to pillage our resources and discard us like trash. I still won't see this movie, of course, but I appreciate balance.
