 My Review

I know alot of you are curious about this one. Sorry the review is short and poorly put together (trust me it'll all make sense once you watch the movie, unlike those useless viral sites).

Enjoy.

I give it a solid 7. My friend gave it a 6, my other friend didn't like it much at all. First 20 minutes you got a small backstory, and then it's all action from there.

To add to MT's list, you won't like this movie if you don't like abrupt endings, but lemme explain something. That was the only way to end the movie since it is a first POV story and in the beginning, you should know how it ends because they make it obvious. There's some comedic relief. Two fine a.ss chicks in the movie, especially that Lily chick. OMG she was off the hook.

I was satisfied for the most part.

y'all n*ggas must be crazy to think that movie was tight, the whoooole theater got sick down here on the Imax. The whole camera thing got old in about 5 minutes, and for the next 70 minutes you have to sit through it. No monster development, no story development. Its basically a story about how this dude wants to tell this girl he loves her....people were walking out of the midnight screening i went to...

the people who walked out have 0 taste in movies and cant comprehend what this movie is about, like you.

no story development? are you fu*king retarded? the story was about him going to save the girl of his life, no monster development? its because its a first person perspective of the event that happened with a certain group

which leaves an opening for prequels and sequels to explain everything

you fail at being a movie fan, then again you are prolly one of the douche bags who thinks scarface is a classic :rolleyes:

Just saw it earlier, and I was impressed.

The monster was cool, it was actually better than I expected. There wasn't more than 1 monster, which is a good thing, because that would have pretty much ruined the whole movie. I don't know who told you there was more than 1.

I think they could have made the parasites or whatever a little better, but they were still cool none the less.

I wish they would have gave more detail about the monster, ie. where it came from, what it is, etc. But then again I'm kind of glad they kept it "hidden" so it would make you think, and it will lead to a good sequel.

Pretty much everyone booed and said "that's it?" "this sucks" after it was over, but I was pleased. Deff. a good movie.

I'd give it a 3 1/2 out of 5.

stfu n*gga... the movie was hot. from the very begining of the movie and the way it started off... everybody knew all of the footage was gonna be from the camera. only the decisions that the characters made in the movie made me mad... but the movie was fu*kin crack.

Scarface was boring after he got to the top. Carlitos Way > Scarface. Hell, Toy Story 2 > Scarface

movie was really boring early on, and there was too much time in between any "Action"
and yeah people walked out when i saw it too
the thing is there were like max 3 cool moments, and thats not enough for a movie that was hype so much...

SPOILER START!!!!

fu*k Captain Save a Hoe, Rob was ADMIRAL Save A Hoe. LIEUTENANT Save a Hoe. lol I can't believe he would spend all that time and risk his life to go find someone who, not only was probably dead, but had the nerve to bring another man to his going away party. lol

SPOILER END!!!

On some real sh*t though, about the movie, I only thought it was decent. But for the people who didn't like it, how can you go into a monster movie with real expectations? The movie starts off not being based on reality...it's about a monster! So to be disappointed at a lack of story development or something is just dumb. You want reality in one way, but will suspend belief about monsters in order to take in the movie? For me, I tried to keep an open mind and set aside the fact that, for the most part, I don't think people would videotape in that situation. But damn...as the movie went on, I thought "SERIOUSLY!? Why is he still taping at all? But REALLY why is he still taping at eye level?" lol

lmao @ that....i let that sh*t go too...like filming at eye level when hes crossing from roof to roof...but that wasnt wut i didnt like about it. i didnt liek that the movie was short as fu*k...they couldve used another half hour or so to let u get to know the characters so u care more about whether they survive or not. and i didnt think there was 1 single original thought in that whole movie...it was literally blair witch and godzilla had a bastard child and it was Cloverfield...then add in a typical "love story" and boo ya...fu*k that movie in its face

This movie sucked. Like dude said it was a high tech rip-off of Blair Witch. Same sh*t.

The fact that this dude is still filming everything thru all of the chaos is bullsh*t. The handheld cam bit got old real fast. He was funny though.
And when dude with the camera gets murked.....How did the dude and his bi*ch, who appeared to be stabbed thru the heart with an steel rod but miraculously survived with no visible effects, manage to escape the monster when they were right by it? Did the monster decide to spare them? How was that chick so mobile after being speared thru the chest with a steel rod??

I understand that the openings leave room for questions to be answered in a sequel or prequel but this movie had too many holes to be considered good. I could list a thousand more questions....but I'm too geeked up right now.
