  2. Seriously can't wait for this film.

  3. Same here.

    Really hope this is as good as the trailers make out, planning to see it next week, looks like a much darker/less comical version to the 2001 version!
  4. I want to see this too. Not sure if it will be much good or not though but the effects looks awesome :)
  5. The trailers were great, the movie was good but not amazing which is a shame because there was fantastic potential. Still worth seeing in the cinema though :)
  6. Didn't really enjoy it. Thought it was silly and the acting was very dodgy. Good special effects though. I'll have forgotten all about ever seeing it in a few days I think.

  7. The movie had good intentions but...

    the focus should have been on Cranson and not the GI Joe hero character that we've seen countless times in these types of movies.

  8. Finally watched this tonight. I didn't think it was very good although the final half hour was a lot of fun. It's a shame that so much of what came before was so generic.

    With something of an edit the film could play so much better at 90 or so minutes.

    Can't be too disappointed though when you take into account what the story is actually about o_O
  9. I think they nailed the "Godzilla aspects" of the film perfectly. The main problem, as has been pointed out is the fact that so much time is spent on characters that are frankly uninteresting to say the least.

    I have to say that I'm a little wary that Gareth Edwards will take the criticism of the lack of time we see Godzilla on board and respond with something along the lines of "Godzilla: Revenge of the Fallen". I think I'm more comfortable with his reduced screentime in hindsight as it adds impact to his time on screen. If the human characters were better, this'd probably me among my favourite summer blockbusters.
  10. I loved that they kept him out of sight for so long it really gave the film a "Jaws buzz" IMO. The lead actor was terrible alright and I can't help but wonder if a certain other character (Bryan Cranston) was turned into the lead just how good this film could of been.
