Spider Fun At its Best
13 December 2013 | by mrsee-59-412707See all my reviews

I normally don't write reviews but had to after watching this flick. What a riot! I was not expecting excellent CGI or acting but have to say this is one of the best "B" flicks I have seen in a while. The one liners are classic and the plot is soooo predictable but FUN. I laughed again and again and did not stop it at any point. I see the rating is low which I except but I live in a cold ass place and this movie warmed me up a little, Fun Fun Fun, don't give up on it in the first Ten (opening is bad) but hang on and be entertained I know I was. Love It! PS don't watch for stellar acting moments although the leads are pretty good. I have seen John Goodman do worse. See if you can catch the Game like CGI, or the continuity problems....some bad edits etc. But I am going to spread the word about this Fun and dare I say Family movie which Pits Spider (Ok its part Alien) against man. I wonder why Sigourney didn't come forward on this one. She did Paul and it's not a lot better. Enjoy!.......or Not:-)
