Actually, she was surprisingly not bad. I mean, for a model-turned-actress. Thought she was a talent level up from Rianna, anyways. But honestly, her job was basically eye-candy, and on that level she certainly delivered.

I'm quite sure I'm in the minority here but I don't get it with her. In the burrito scene I literally thought "He's going through all of that for her?", and as far as the eye candy part there was the scene when she's running to the jeep to show her driving skills and I noticed her...uh..."talents" but even then I was basically "meh" about it. And while I'm at it I feel the same way about Rhianna as well. They're not unattractive women, I guess just not my type in either case.

the question is, do we watch this movie if those 2 fine females are not part of it?

Well, we would. We're nerds. We like special effects, explosions, CGI, and big LFE. But there's a certain segment of the population for which those two chicks were cast, and presumably there were a few more tickets sold because of it. Otherwise, stunt casting doesn't make a lot of sense.

I played a couple rounds of Battleship with my daughter the other evening. I can assure you it was more entertaining than the movie.

I wish I could get those two hours of my life back. Brook's acting was actually the most convincing out of the whole cast! I know this thread is dead, but I had to vent somewhere...

I agree, um...again. She wasn't bad, considering how much (non)experience she's had. Brooklyn was far from the worst thing about this movie. An' she shor is purty.
