I had the movie pegged to go in another direction but I guess the joke was on me, and everyone I was with thought the movie was going in the same direction I thought, so it was pleasant surprise that it was not that predictable.
Overall 5.5 is good, watchable, scary enough. More psychological than it was Horror or Terror.
It was a little light on the Horror, and there was 1 single plot line, but still enjoyed it.
This movie is for Kids, and parents who have kids. I took my daughter to see it today in 3D. Excellent visual effects, entire movie had effects, you did not take your glasses off at all or you'd miss the next 3d effect that is right around the corner. The cast was good, The Rock was great and jokes were funny, this movie was child safe and had everything that your young one would want, lots of effects, action, above and underwater. I would definitely recommend it in 3D. The pace of movie is fast and if you have kids ....you can appreciate this.
I rated this movie for what it is...a kids movie. Are you going to leave the theater discussing the virtues of Plato? NO! but your kids will be going on about this and that in the movie. Worth Admission? Absolutely. Asked my daughter what she rated it....9.5 she said. Was it worth it? When your child says 9.5 what the heck else matters?????
I have the DVD and I highly recommend this movie. Not to be taken as light entertainment though..this movie weighs on you like a 500 pound stone from start to finish.
Nicole Kidman is batting 0 for 2...Eyes Wide Shut and now this...don't get me wrong the acting job in this movie was well done but the script is more for those who wish to make more of movies than it really is. You can try to read into all those scenes, the meaning of this and the meaning of that...sorry...cant get around it ...it was a bad movie.
Was hoping for more (or less hours)
