This was way better than I was expecting. Fun and unique story, amazing visuals and fantastic stop motion animation. Loved the charm, action and bits of humor. It really has something for everyone. It's a kids movie, but adults can easily enjoy this one. The respect for art this movie has is amazing.
How they got two Oscar winners to be in this is a trick I'll never understand.
Its your generic action fantasy flick, nothing more. Honestly, I kind of liked it. The acting isn't great. Julianne Moore looks like she's barely trying. Jeff Bridges actually looks like he's having some fun. The special effects are honest pretty fun. Not all look great, but the transformation stuff and giant monsters were pretty cool.
I'll add this one to my guilty pleasure list.
Gravity meets Alien. Ryan Reynolds acting like Deadpool. I don't remember any of the characters' names. Saw the ending coming. I don't know, this felt like Hollywood churning out the same old, by the numbers movie. The cinematography and special effects were great. Its a fun movie, but it didn't feel like it brought anything unique to the table.
