A great movie but compared to the second and third entries, it’s pretty stiff.
A perfectly nice movie. Good performances.
Guys, that Catholic church did some fucking nasty shit, huh?
Third act felt sort of rushed. But it was a really competent follow-up to a really (overly-)competent summer blockbuster.
The mo-cap work still looks great. The human cast is solid. A good time to have in a theatre in the summer, guys.
A deeply weird film. Sean Bobbit makes it look so lurid and pulpy.
Brolin, a fine actor, is not quite up to snuff with a lot of the acting work he’s asked to do. Other than glower, he’s a little silly.
Sharlto Copley plays a supremely strange dandy with really distracting affectations.
WHO COSTUMED THIS THING?
SPOILER ALERT, MAYBE?: The flashback where Copley explains his fathers rampage is bonkers. Like, perverse.
I know that it’s based on a Japanese comic book but I so enjoy seeing a really big budget movie that’s not a sequel or based on a known property. (It still confounds me about the Inception haters. I’m not saying the movie is perfect but it’s a HUGE ORIGINAL movie. That means something!)
Anyway, I’m an unabashed TC fan. I think he does killer work in this film. I love the creature and equipment design. Emily Blunt is a great action actor.
Wasn’t crazy about the third act since it felt a little too rote. But I had a great time with this movie.
Has a bunch of great laughs and solid gags but does feel strangely compromised. But I presume that’s a result of a not-huge budget.
Max Greenfield might have been my favourite performer in the film. I don’t watch New Girl but I may have to start.
What a bummer.
Doesn’t paint anybody as a ‘bad guy’. Just throws the characters in a situation none of them really wants to be in. Trying to do as little damage as possible.
A couple really solid chuckle-bits but not as funny as the original. And making the film a joke about how it’s a sequel and rehashing the first film isn’t very funny after a while.
