This is like Stalker but it's yelling at me.
I want to praise major studio sci fi, but it's a no from me dawg.
Some good ideas, bad script
Lens flair was annoying
Guitar score was irritating, last score was good
Performances a mixed bag, but Portman and Isaac are good
Fan of the original book, fine with the idea of changes, just not ones that thud the crap out of a message. Not a good last sequence, although the actual monster scene is delightful.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Okay I have more to say now, because a friend messaged me on Facebook, asking me if I thought he gouged his eyes out at the end of the movie. This is what I sent back to him, with a little more editing and addition.
The whole reason we're not shown the result and left w/Rachel Weisz sitting at the table is because we're considering Colin Farrell's options. He can 1. Gouge his eyes out 2. Not gouge his eyes…
I don’t “do” Marvel stuff but this was pleasant as hell. We are really lucky to have a director like this doing a film like this. Unfortunately the movie doesn’t shake the problems I have with the Marvel movies but it does confirm everything I love about Cooger. In particular, I love the non-CGI heavy fight sequences, featuring some of the slyest camerawork I’ve seen in a long time from Hollywood. Need a RC non-branded action flick stat.
