In 'Battleship,' Taylor Kitsch stars as U.S. Navy Lieutenant Alex Hopper. Hopper is a bit of a rebel and a screw-up, especially compared to his older brother, Commander Stone Hopper (Alexander Skarsgard). All personal problems they have are put aside when a group of alien ships arrives on Earth and begins wreaking havoc. The Naval ships are forced into an epic showdown as they battle the evil invaders in an effort to save humanity.

    Waste Himself

    Admiral Shane (to Alex): "What is wrong with you? You went from enlisted to an officer faster than anyone in the history of the United States Navy, and I have never, ever seen a man waste himself better than you."

    Admiral Shane does nothing to hide his total disdain for Alex. He sees him as a world class slacker -- and someone not worthy of dating, much less marrying, his daughter. Alex will have to prove himself to Shane, and helping to stave off an alien invasion seems like a fantastic way to do that.

    Petty Officer Raikes: "My dad said they'd come. Said it my whole life. He said one day we'd find them -- or they'd find us. You know what else he said? He said, 'I hope I ain't around when that day comes."

    Petty Officer Raikes (Rihanna, in her first film role) knows that trouble is coming. All her life, she's also been waiting for aliens to arrive, and she knows that if they don't defeat them, the world is in serious jeopardy.

    Right in the Eyes


    Samantha: "You ready for this?"
    Alex: "I'm gonna walk up to him and look him right in the eyes."
    Samantha: "What are you gonna say?"
    Alex: "Your daughter is the best thing that has happened to me in my entire life. It would be an honor to have your permission to marry her..."

    Alex is definitely deeply in love with beautiful physical therapist Samantha. There's just one (very big) problem: Samantha's father, Admiral Shane, can't stand him. It's understandable, then, that Alex would be a bit hesitant to ask for her hand in marriage...

    All Weapons

    Admiral Shane: "Prepare to fire!"
    Crew member: "Sir, which weapons?"
    Admiral Shane: "All of them."

    Admiral Shane (Liam Neeson) knows that something incredibly dangerous and serious is threatening Earth, and it's up to him, and the ships he commands, to stop it. It's a battle for survival, and Shane (rightly) uses every weapon at his disposal.
