fantastical..........still average but fairly well done and don't take the children
Average. It's not the masterpiece some have made it out to be. The fantasy elements are quite well done, but most of the movie takes place in a realistic setting that is rather formulaic at times. It's further hampered by poor characterization. Oddly enough it's the non-fantasy characters who are weakest, and come across as two dimensional and lacking any real depth other than being heroes or villains.
best movie ever
a very good movie it was very imaginetive the gore is very realistic.The tale has a dark twist to it which makes the film tense and scary.
It gave me chills. It made me cry. I couldn't stop thinking about it for a week. Oh my God, this movie was amazing. This was the first Spanish movie I ever watched, and I thought it was amazing. The music, the creatures, and everything was just /so/ good.
Awesome movie flat out.
I really liked the ending of this movie.
It has a very powerful meaning and it concludes the story perfectly.
Remember that this isn't one of those fantasy/adventure movies for young children. It may seem like it from dvd covers and trailers - but this is an adult movie or rather a more mature audience.
Watch the movie - if you're old enough!
Two thumbs up!
the best movie of 2006, even if its a foreign movie
VERY Disappointed! This was supposed to be a magical ride but was just boring, gross and disturbing. Too much violence. I really could have done without the vivid toture and brains getting blown out. This is not a movie your kids should see but was advertised as a family movie. I was just hoping the stupid little girl would get killed by the monster with eyes on his hands for eating the stupid grape.
Running Time: 112 min.
