    Maybe not the best choice of movie to watch with your wife when she’s pregnant and one week overdue. Fortunately, my wife wasn’t too bothered by the “pregnancy horror” aspects and enjoyed the movie. 

    Like everyone says, the practical effects are great as is the sound design. The story is ape shit and doesn’t do any handholding as it escalates from thriller to slasher to monster to body horror and beyond. In this modern world of stupid CGI clown monsters, this really hit the spot.

    More experience than movie, I love his visual textures and that soundtrack is awesome. Story-wise, there’s nothing here that hasn’t been explored in other, often more accessible films but rarely with such style.

    Crazy action with minimal story. It plays out like the ultimate badass fantasy of a 13 year old boy that plays too many video games. It's entertaining but lacks the fun of Shoot 'Em Up by taking itself too seriously.

    This one hasn't aged very well. The ideas and concepts are still engaging but man the dialogue is Star-Wars-prequel-bad in many places. Lots of awkward exposition and just flat performances. Trinity appears to be on quaaludes most of the time. I couldn't wait for most of the peripheral characters to be killed. Sorry if that spoiled anything for you but the movie gets better from there.
    The special effects are still cool but even there, a lot of rough matte…
