Dreamworks' masterpiece. I never thought I'd say that. When I first saw this, I enjoyed it, but nothing more. But now, me still filled with Christmas cheer, I sat on the sofa, glued to this masterwork of film homage, comedy and breath-taking action.
It's like The Avengers, but funnier and leaner. How it manages to pack in all the likability of the five protagonists to…
The monsters were funny, the main character Susan Murphy/Ginormica was cute and well developed, and the movie as a whole is action-packed and fast paced while still being charming. It's not the deepest of stories, and the Megamind-like villain is very one-note, but the film is very popular with the 3-year old in my house. But then he is obsessed with monsters and robots 24/7.
Well this is just a fun film for the whole geeky family! The thing I love most are the small references to other films, and the on the ballot humor. It has a very talented voice cast, but at times Reese Witherspoon can be a tad annoying but that's part of her character. All and all a great science fiction family movie!
Oh man. The nostalgia
Not one of DreamWorks best but the characters are pretty great and there's a lot of laughs with a very good voice cast.
It's really funny but sadly kind of forgettable :(
I'll NEVER forget the first time I saw this film in the cinema, reasons being;
-It was my first time witnessing the improved 3D technology that's practically rampant nowadays and it couldn't have been a better choice. Perfectly gimmicky and obvious throughout.
-The audience was fucking enthralled from start to finish, laughing uproariously at every joke and applauding at least two. The positivity they exuded was contagious and long-lasting.
-As soon as Sheb Wooley's "Purple People Eater" started playing during the credits, a young couple got out of their seats and started properly swingin' to it without missing a beat, to which THEY recieved a round of applause. Not even kidding.
I daresay it was the single greatest movie-going experience I've ever had.
And the film itself....eh. Not horrible, but mostly very forgettable, with some scattered laughs throughout. One of Dreamworks' weaker efforts for me, unfortunately.
Maybe it's the big silly monster movie nerd in me that's forcing me to this but i really liked this movie. It's fun and probably one of Dreamworks most underrated movies.
Funny idea but the final product is actually kind of boring and not very funny. Lots of cheap 3D gags seem strange in 2D.
Really fun, really funny, really cool in 3D.
Funny and great acting and writing make this a great kids' movie!
A lot of fun with an excellent voice cast (notably Sutherland, Laurie and Colbert).
Oh man. The nostalgia
i don't know if it's just because i'm deliriously excited to go out tonight or this was just deliriously funny. happy for this 2 be the last film i watch this year <3
