everything works
2 June 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Just sit back and enjoy. Don't think, leave your brain in the cupboard and you will have your laughs now and then. This science-fiction comedy works due a few things. We do have an actually story and the acting is above mediocre. Not only that, there are serious parts involved, the army going out to destroy the spider and the funny part, a simple exterminator out to save the world with the help of his Mexican friend.

The Mexican and the American alone works but both combined to rescue the world makes it even funnier. And of course when the Mexican is out for help you will have a great Mexican score. But not only that. The effects used for the spider are also above mediocre even as it is CGI.

When the spider attacks and it do so in several ways, spitting acid, or making webs or just stabbing it's all dine in a rather gory way.

It's not a Tucker and Dale vs Evil (2010) kind of comedy but it was indeed funny. And it moves on, there's never a moment that gets boring or whatsoever. Towards the end it's a bit of King Kong (1933) homage and even that works, by then it's just a no-brainer but it do works until the end. Stay tuned when the end credits are running, the end joke and score is great.

Gore 1,5/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 3/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 2,5/5
