"Look at the size of that whammer"
If I had a nickel for every time I said that I'd have a negative balance in my checking account! ;-)
Ok so the dialogue may not be the normal every day repertoire of the average Joe Blow but it was often times funny or uber cool like something you'd find in some pulp fiction novel! The film as a whole definitely had a Noirish feel to it!
The special effects team obviously put in overtime and it showed! The creatures were so well done I thought was in creature feature heaven! What Guillermo del Toro brought to this film in quality, style and atmosphere cannot be measured in dollars and cents! The man is a god when he is in the director's chair!
Ron Perlman's larger than life performance upped the ante and it paid off brilliantly! Is there anything Ron Perlman can't do!
