Great movie w/amazing special effects!
13 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

I can't believe I avoided this movie for the longest time simply because of all the poor reviews it received. This just goes to show that you can't believe everything you read. I took a chance on it tonight and to my surprise it turned out to be a really GREAT MOVIE w/AMAZING SPECIAL EFFECTS!! To all the negative critics out there who said this was a boring movie, YOUR BORING!! This was a fun, action-packed movie the entire time! The extremely talented cast did an exceptional job of making you laugh and keeping you on your toes from start to finish. If you didn't like this movie then your just way too picky! I highly recommend this movie and will most likely watch it again in the future. My only complaint was, where were the Navy Seals?
