This one's kind of a guilty pleasure. I can see you either loving it or hating it. Being a fan of the games does add a bit to the experience though. Now obviously this movie is a mashup of ideas from other things like Alien and Predator, and It definitely shows too. The story is nothing special, but I find it to be passable. Most of the good things come from the monsters, and the tensions spread throughout the movie. I was engaged, not for the characters, but for the situation the characters found themselves in. Sometimes it's just fun to watch a fun popcorn flick and enjoy the show. One more thing, although the practical effects were quite good, some of the CGI really doesn't hold up.
I'd give it a 70% personally, but the unbiased critic in me says it's more like a 50-60%. #GuiltyPleasure #GameMovie #MovieReview
