That is how I’ll describe this movie in one word.
Well, that is what you can expect from Guillermo Del Toro. I was afraid it will be disappointing, like Man Of Steel did. Fortunately, this movie delivers.
Of course some of plot devices aren’t making much sense if we think deeply about them, but they are forgivable as this movie does not set as a serious hyper realistic movie (as Man Of Steel does). Also, the pacing is great, not too slow or too fast. The neural bridge concept is a very clever way to cut time needed for characters development.
Action scenes are intense but not over the top and the 3D effects make them more exciting. I think the 3D is the best one I’ve seen this year so far.
Overall score : 8.5/10
Whomever you are, you should watch this movie!
