ZEDD'S OPINION:

There is a lot to like about the movie, the creature effects, the story, the acting. Now two things bugged the heck out of me, the ending without giving it away was kind of a let down and the way the Green Gargantua would eat people then spit out their clothes was just goofy. 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd but the climax of the film bugged me allot more then it bugged him, so I must give this movie a much lower grade then he did. I must give it 3 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (- HITS):

+ EFFECTS (The creature effects works.)
+ STORY (For the most part the story works.)
+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ MODEL EFFECTS (The model effects work.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- GOOFY (The eating people and spitting out of the clothes was silly. After all he was eating the bones, why not the clothes?)
- CLIMAX (The climax was a major disappointment.)

...AND FINALLY....

- FAN BASED (If you aren't into giant monsters, then this isn't for you.)
