okay, alright, despite you see as much pavement as you have when you were getting beat down by bullies in highschool, it’s actually a good movie, better than i had expected it to be. i like it being shot at this handy-cam, amateur-ish photography style, i thought it fit the movie well, even though it does cause me to be very, very sick, even though i have lots of training at this kinda stuff.
story was alright, nothing too unexpected, and frankly a little cheesy, but it does have some nice twists in it. i thought it was well executed, and again the first-person-ish type of feel really give the movie a lot more impact than a traditional disaster/monster movie.
the visual was okay, nothing too spectacular, though the city replacement was pretty cool, the creature work is not very good, but decent enough for the film, and the parasite design i feel much resembles the bugs in star ship troopers, and the big monster was pretty cool when you were able to see it in it’s full glory near the end of the film, and destruction is always my thing :P. but anyway, it’s a far better movie than i had expected it to be, even though it did make me motion sick, still great movie, i would love to buy it on DVD.
