Milton Bradley's enduringly popular strategic board game makes the leap to the big screen in Hancock director Peter Berg's epic sci-fi adventure pitting an international naval fleet against an army of invading aliens. When the two forces find themselves evenly matched, each must rely on strategy and cunning in order to emerge the victor.

So this gets 4 stars... but hear me out... the movie isn't the greatest. However it is entertaining. I don't expect much from video games, or in this case a board game, movies. This one is entertaining enough though if you don't scrutinize it too much... So I give the movie about 3 stars in terms of storyline. Basically just brings back the nostalgia for anyone that enjoyed playing battleship.
But I will give the 4K presentation of this a full 5 stars. This is a standout 4K presentation. I would even go so far as to say this is near close to reference quality, if not reference quality. Demo worthy in its own right. It was made with a 2K DI so not native 4K however the upscaling in the end worked wonders. The WCG and HDR also help tons to show the vibrancy of Hawaii and the vividness of the water scene.
