Trivia

This movie has been compared to Men in Black (1997), in that they both deal with secret government agencies contending with otherworldly beings. Jeff Bridges is playing the same kind of character that his good friend and Blown Away (1994) costar Tommy Lee Jones played in Men In Black. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, Nick's red car collides with a locked metal gate and breaks it open. In the next shot, the car is undamaged. See more »

A fun movie. Better than I expected
19 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I saw he trailers and wondered if the movie would be as funny, or if they had shown all the "good stuff" in the trailer. Well, I'm happy to report that the trailers captured much of the essence of the movie, but the movie itself has much more.

I don't know what some of the critics expect. Shakespeare? Hey, this is a comic book movie. It is a fantasy. It is not real and not meant to be real. But it IS also fun. It is quite possible that this movie will lose money, but that is simply because of bad positioning, overwhelming competition, and failure to deliver adequate advertising. But none of those things detract from the movie itself.

I went to the movie with some trepidation, but found it to be funny and entertaining. It was consistent with its premise and it certainly had enough action, and even (gasp) character development. There is nothing really deep about this movie, okay? But it is good summer entertainment and definitely worth seeing.
