4 IT'S SO SKULL-SHAKINGLY NUTS, IT'S IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO ENJOY!MovieAddict | 10/08/2012 | See all MovieAddict's reviews (1336)Top 10 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer After Battle ship sank (pardon the pun) at the Box-office,the studio blamed it two things One was The Avengers Assemble hooveing up the punters. And Two was the knee jerk reaction to people wondering why they should spend money on a movie based on a Board game?Avoiding the subject that if the movie had made a bit of sense in the first place might have helped the ctitics warm to it. But this film is no worse than the Transformers movies and now in reflection if they had held fire and released in at the back end of the summer this film could have performed much better. This 209 million Dollar behemoth is far more fun and insane than you'd have thought possible. Even leaving aside some of the slapstick around a burrito and Liam Neeson playing a Dad time warmed from 1880, there's a late story twist that not only justifies the title that underlines the U.S. Navy's enthusiastic involvment, but also boggles the mind, but by the time AC/DC's Thunder Struck started to blast out I was having too much fun to give a damn. It's full of massive ships, big guns, great explosions, loads of people shouting, naff flag waving patriotism that would have seemed OTT on VJ Day, and to top it all it's so skull shakingly nuts it's hard not to crack a smile.It was never supposed to be a serious movie, but how could it have been, it's just a load of big budget fun.See if you like.....Transformers Trilogy.GI.Joe Rise Of The Cobra.G.I.
