Las Vegas shooting range instructor shows Rihanna the Navy way in ‘Battleship’
Las Vegas Sun ^ | 19 may 2012 | Ron Sylvester

Beyond 'Battleship'

Jacqueline Carrizosa can say she's doubled for the sexiest woman alive.

The 22-year-old U.S. Navy veteran and Las Vegas resident was a stunt double for Rihanna and taught the singer, model and now movie star how to act like a weapon-wielding sailor for the movie "Battleship," which opens nationwide this weekend.

"She really wanted to learn everything she could and asked a lot of questions," Carrizosa said. "I gave her some lessons on how we deal with deadly force in the Navy. I wanted to instill some professionalism behind her character."

Early reviews said this movie is a piece of crap, it opened overseas so that bad US reviews didn’t spoil the overseas market.

“sexiest woman alive.”

Nothing sexy about a recidivist punching bag.

I hope Carrizosa explained to Rihanna than it is the height of stupidity to continue to date a guy who punches you in the face.

Actually, big movies have been opening earlier overseas (like The Avengers) to prevent movie piracy from the US affecting overseas sales.

Soooo, all this combat experience from a 22-year-old female sailor. Hollywood indeed.

Too bad she ruined her arms with all those tattoos.

She’s more amusement park than Navy. Range world as opposed to mission world.

Not. Even. Close.

In fact, the sailor is sexier than Rihanna.

I can say without hesitation that I've dated hotter and sexier girls (plural) than Rihanna.

Actually, Entertainment Weekly gave it a respectable B+. It's an FX-laden action movie, not "Citizen Cane". Plus, big budget films are opening overseas for two reasons: The overseas market loves these type of films which helps generate positive buzz for the American market.

Anyways, this active duty Petty Officer is looking forward to the Blu-Ray version at home on my big screen. Rhianna looking hot in a set of NWUs doesn't hurt either!

I believe once you have served your country whether you made it a full career or served your first term...you have worn the uniform of the United States of America and therefore you are forever a “Vet.” Proud of ALL our vets who served and happy my brother, husband, son, son in law, neice, brothers in law, all served in the Air Force, Navy and Army. Some pilots, some MPs, on carriers, on land and in various career fields. Some Officers and some Enlisted. No matter their rank or career field...or served their one term. They are and always will be VETS. :)

I agree, looks like prison tat's. I do like tat's on women if they are done right and don't go overboard.

“I agree, looks like prison tat’s. I do like tat’s on women if they are done right and don't go overboard.”

I'm a little older than most here and “Tat’s” make my skin crawl. As a child I noticed that the parents of a kid up the street had numbers written on their forearm and my Dad explained to me about Nazi concentration camps. Later I found out about how people with interesting “Tat’s” were selected for special treatment. Can't see a “Tat” without thinking about that.

Check out the new "NWUs" the Nav's now got sailors wearing. Never thought I'd see the USN adopt USMC regs; I'm sure all those pockets are handier than the old dungarees, but that camo's going to make you harder to spot if you go overboard. $;-)

As a 26-year veteran (6 active duty, in my 20th in the Air Force Reserves), I appreciate your comments. Mine was just that she’s really young to be a veteran already, and I wish we’d been able to keep such an obviously highly-trained and competent service member in the ranks.

And thanks for your family’s sacrifice and service.

Colonel, USAFR

I would not want any daughter of mine having one at any, age.

Don't know about this one, but last week I went to see Avengers, and I actually fell asleep, LOL.

Film makers have not caught on that visuals without plot, continuity and some sense of realism appleals only to kiddies and gamers. But I repeat myself.

I kinda liked Battleship. Enjoyed watching the Missouri go into battle. Although I have to concede that the notion of getting it out of mothball status and into action in one afternoon strains credulity, to say the least.

It was better than Avengers.

I saw it today. It was an enjoyable shoot-em-up, although it required extreme suspension-of-disbelief.

The alien weaponry was stupid. An interstellar culture whose weapons cannot dynamically track a moving ship?

And the idea that a mothballed USS Missouri, operating as a museum with daily tour groups, would just happen to have live ordinance and ammunition on board to go into action with, is just nuts.

Rihanna is nowhere near the "sexiest alive", but it figures that the far-left, Obama-ass-kissing rag called Esquire would think she was. Their pictorial makes her look like a depraved, heroin-addled whore. It is pathetic to behold.

Good afternoon.

The 22-year-old U.S. Navy veteran ...

Three items: One, a Navy vet at 22 years of age? Two, even if she is a veteran at 22, that is not much experience (combat or otherwise). Three, I wouldn't take ANY advice from a Squid anyway.

INCOMING...!

5.56mm

Why would a squid wear camouflage BDUs? Naval ships are gray are they not? Makes them harder to find on liberty I guess.
