You might not believe that I was once a cop when I couldn't even believed myself that I had served the national with pride for 11 long years. After having left the Police Force for more than a year, I still have to reply my call of duty as a reservist. Which mean I still need to keep myself physically fit and maintain my basic enforcement skills like self-defense & shooting. Today, I had reported for my Taurus Revolver .38 test shoot and managed to secure my 'Marksman' level. Feels great as my cash incentives are two hundred bucks.
On my way home, I treated myself to this manly action sci-fi movie 'Battleship'. It was a sudden decision to watch the movie when the trailer makes it so inviting. I just bumped in into a nearby cinema and was lucky enough to get the ticket just 5 minutes before the show starts. Well, I had to watch the movie with me, myself and Dennis aka Katsuden.
This movie reminded me of 'Battle Los Angeles' but in this instant, the fighting field now switched to the sea instead of land. 'Battleship' takes a less serious tone compared to 'Battle L.A', so much so that some of the scenes are kind of cheesy. Based on Hasbro game 'Battleship', this adaption promised to deliver action pack scenes, hot babe like Brooklyn Decker (Sorry Rihanna, you are not on my list) and impressive CGI, closed to 'Transformers'. I meant closed but no as smooth as TF live action movie.
A word of advise: Just enjoy the flow and not think too realistically cos I personally feel that the heroes managed to recovery from those bad situations too quickly as if shipwreck and casualties management were at breeze.
