Like hasn’t Hollywood noticed not remake 80s classics. It had good action set pieces set in beautiful locations but overall doesn’t have the same magic as the original, also the ending wasn’t as great as the original.
I can see some good themes here that could of been handed way way better like in the fashion on alien meets the thing making way better but it’s just a clearly under budget sequel to a great classic. Some of the special effects and make up were good other than that it’s pretty bad compared to the first. ‘‘Tis also very strange that one of the best special effects artists (most know for his stop motion animation on the Star Wars franchise) directed this film.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Holy shit what a good movie and I’m disappointed I didn’t see it earlier. What a great story with beautiful stop motion animation that you honestly can’t tell at times. I’m sad this is a dying art form and hopefully laika studios can make another film. The only me stop motion film I know of coming out is early man by ardman.
The voice acting was great and the visuals were a feast for the eyes. The music was nice…
