Call me an optimist, but I thought films had reached their nadir. There were no further depths to plumb. For every GREEN LANTERN there was at least THE DARK KNIGHT to compensate. I can live with that. However, my belief system was shaken to its very core today. I know the premise is based on a board game, but BATTLESHIP is the dumbest film I have ever seen. It is so awful it makes TRANSFORMERS look like 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Save yourselves 131 minutes.
