movie summary: As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. (www.imdb.com)
my thoughts: The special effects are amazing, without these CGI battles, this would be a horrible movie. The actors in their non fighting scenes are subpar, while the plot was typical race to save the earth stuff. This movie combined parts of Avatar, Transformers, and the Abyss (yes the Abyss – 1989) all into one storyline. Over two hours in length, people will get their moneys worth of sea monsters destorying major cities and epic battles against man made machines.
my star rating: 7 out 10
