the movie was very loud in the AMC leater. me and my husband both had headaches half way through, and we usually like louder suspension.

Not a normal Matt Damon movie but if you go into it open minded the movie was quite good. Also if you are a fan of the k pop star lu Han he played a good minor role too. Effects were cool too. Gets right into the action. 4 stars of 5

Was expecting more. The plot was predictable. The main actor didn't seem to fit the role.

Um... idk what I just watched... can't say I hated it, but also can't say I liked it...this was riddled with plot holes... also- what was with the whoville listening devices?...let's put it this way.... it made cowboys and aliens make more sense.

lots of cool scenery and action, but that's about it. there are a few funny lines from one of the characters, but the story and plot is very generic and disjointed at times. also there is no sense about caring for the characters actions at all

It plays like like a video game in which the goal is to kill as many of these green-blooded monsters as you can before time's up. It's fun for about 10 minutes, and then the tedium seeps in.

The computer-generated monsters, like the film as a whole, are numbingly repetitive, and devoid of any power to move, scare or stir us.

Viewers are in good hands — if they’re not too demanding — as Zhang Yimou puts the easily distinguishable characters through their paces.
