Movie Reviewer Andy McKinney says "Battleship" is diverting but the story is lost in the telling

2 1/2 
Andy says "Director Peter Berg keeps the action moving along, I’ll say that.  The aliens are very good, near human in form with enough weirdness to be frightening and disgusting.  And they are lavish in their willingness to destroy as many humans as it takes.  The set up in the story is fine but a lot is lost in the telling.  There are chronological lapses that just about jarred me out of my seat."
"Relax and enjoy the summer movies.  The popcorn is great, the theater air-conditioned and Battleship, for all its shortcomings, is a lot more fun than What Ever Happened to Virginia Wolf."
