In a few short hours, I will be watching Battleship. Before you ask why, let me direct your attention to the Summer Movie post I put out that indicates my general wanting to see this cinematic masterpiece. I know it will be entertaining, explosions and gratuitous special effects can do that to a general audience. Heck even The Avengers was a visual eye candy film and that one will be no different. My expectations are low, low enough that I will enjoy it a base level as I will not care for the characters they are trying to make me care for. With that said, I wanted to pick a film today that represents the sort of action film that Battleship will be, one of cliches and familiar territory, while pumping you full of action to keep you entertained. And when you think about, that’s all you can ask in an action film.
