The special effects are great; the alien ships look amazing and there are some cool action scenes

Rating: 2/5

2012. 131 min. PG13.

Sci-fi action.

In this movie, which is loosely based on the popular board game of the same name, a fleet of ships comes across an alien armada while on a naval war-game exercise.

Cut off from the rest of the world in an alienmade dome, these ships, commanded by the perpetually screwed-up Lieutenant Alex Hopper (TAYLOR KITSCH), are all that stand between Earth and alien domination. Hopelessly outgunned, Alex and his ragtag crew of sailors – which includes weapons specialist Cora “Weps” Raikes (RIHANNA) – need to figure out what the aliens want and how to defeat them.

. Unfortunately there aren’t enough of them – which makes what is essentially a dumbed-down action movie a bit of a let-down.

Still, sci-fi action junkies will enjoy it.
