This is a tough one. This could have been a great film, but it is obvious that the studio pulled the money out at the end. The editing is terrible, it is very sloppy. Also the end felt tacked on, it felt like there were 2 endings and the final one wasn't as good as the first one. But Nic Cage shows that he is good.
Being a kiwi, I love to see our industry doing well and I really enjoyed this. Its a good story, well acted and directed (good job Paul).
It is very atmospheric with a great location and looks great. The effects are good, considering the budget and its great to see the use of physical over digital.
So, overall, a good old fashioned horror film with some really nice touches and some fun references to other films and literature.
Never really being a Transformers fan (I missed the toy craze by about 5 years), I enjoyed the 1st film, big, dumb and loud, but fun. Then the last 2 came out and my interest wained, kinda crap. But next to this one, the other 3 are works of art.
This is is the biggest piece of crap I think I have ever sat through. Michael Bay needs to be stopped, he is spending so much money on these pointless…
