The Top 5 Reasons To See ‘Battleship’

The Girls of Summer

Sexy ladies and big-budget action tent poles go hand in hand, so you shouldn’t be surprised to find two of the most beautiful women on the planet in “Battleship.” But don’t call either of them damsels in distress.

Rihanna brings the best of female empowerment to the U.S.S. John Paul Jones as Petty Officer Raikes, a weapons specialist who personally blasts a bunch of alien invaders to holy hell. Not only does she get up close and personal with an E.T. while engaging in hand to hand combat as she defends her commanding officer (Taylor Kitsch, more on him later), she frequently pulls her fellow crewman out of hairy situations throughout the flick. From start to finish Ri is positively bad-ass, and again proves that men aren’t the only heroes in Hollywood.

While the songstress does her things out at sea, model-turned-actress Brooklyn Decker (above) plays an important role in the campaign. Her character Sam Shane, a military physical therapist and daughter of a high-ranking Naval Admiral, is wholly unprepared for the attack when she’s working with a patient in a remote area of a Hawaiian island, but rises to the challenge and helps foil the extraterrestrial’s plans. Her bravery is absolutely admirable, especially considering the fact that she’s a civilian.
