Tim and I rented this tonight. It is quite possibly the worst movie I have scene in some time.
It’s not about the monster. It’s about a bunch of boring characters.
The movie has a horrible first-person camera man motif. It’s in the context of a home video recording. This would be interesting for a fifteen minute arthaus film, but it drags on and on and on.
There’s minimal action, pieced together between long scenes of nothing happening and the characters being confused and scared.
I had no empathy for any of the characters. They were cardboard cutouts with no personality. Cliches have more personality.
There was no tension, no suspense. No pacing. All I wanted was for the movie to end.
Spoilers: The monster is really fucking big. They don’t kill it in the end. Everyone dies. But you could have figured that out from the first minute of the film. There, now you don’t need to see it either.
