5 Reasons to Go See 'Battleship'
Director Peter Berg's Battleship sailed on to theater screens today and it's one movie that will leave you with laughter and several jaw dropping moments. Inspired by the actual board game, the sci-fi film follows a Navy fleet on naval exercises that end with a huge surprise; aliens. The fleet is now faced with the task of eliminating the aliens using clever and strategic methods.
Vixen has rounded up 5 reasons Battleship should be the film you see this weekend. Check it out!
1. Eye Candy For the Ladies & Gents
First and foremost, everyone will be happy about the cast because they are simply gorgeous. Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgård and Rihanna are just a few of the hot faces that you will see on the big screen. We've seen good looking casts before, but there is just something about this one that makes it all worthwhile.
2. Weapons & Special Effects
If you love action, this film gives you a dosage you will never forget. From the features of the aliens and guns to the ships and water simulation, this is the part of the film that will be the reason you may yell out loud if the cast doesn't do that already.
#RihannaNavy fans ante up, because your girl has made it to the big screen. Her role as weapons specialist Raikes is small, but you will be glad to see that she is active throughout the entire film. She tries really hard to make her accent disappear and you can tell it was something she struggled with, but as her first film she wasn't bad at all. She definitely kicked some alien ass, Boom!
4. Production and Setting
The setting of the film takes place on the Hawaiian islands Maui and Oahu, and it really is easy on the eyes. Clear water and blue skies allow you to not only get lost in the action of the film, but also appreciate the beauty of land.
Music is pretty much what makes any film, it evokes emotions of fear, happiness, mystery and more. Battleship's soundtrack was created by composer Steve Jablonsky, who also did Transformers. The soundtrack builds all the emotions that you would expect to have during an action movie and more. It's a must see and must hear!
