Votes: 637,673 | Gross: $256.39M
Attrocious. Bad CGI. Bad story (what the heck did they ruin the twist AND the ending for?!). Bad direction. Bad everything. The empty NYC streets look cool, and some of the action sequences, and I like the IDEA behind the monsters and the fact they are actually quite intelligent. But it all adds up to a pretty bad film.
