It’s average at best. Not particularly amazing, but I liked the story arc of the main character. His choice to become a blue person made sense. Ripley was awesome as always.
For me, it felt like I’d basically already seen it before in other films. The special effects didn’t impress me as it did for others. I just looked at it and thought “wow, how boring must that have been to film in a green screen studio?” Nothing on that made up planet was real & it showed. If I wanted to watch an animated film, I’d watch How to Train Your Dragon.
That being said, it’s fine as a standalone film. Not sure how the sequels are gonna expand on it, but it’s better that Cameron works on that than another shitty Terminator film.
I just recently re-watched it, it was on FX. I forgot how good it is, even with being a live-action Ferngully. I’m interested in seeing what they do with the rest of them. I’ve been following the Twitter account, looks like a lot of underwater stuff, which Cameron excels at.
I agree with you 100% Jeremy I never saw it in theaters so I didn’t get the full “visual experience” that I got from my tv but when I watched the movie I just wanted to go back to Animal Kingdom instead haha
