This film felt like the sequel to the movie we loved a couple of years ago. I only wish that beloved first movie actually existed, then I might have a better grasp and appreciation of the world we’re introduced to during the opening ten minutes of this movie. Pay attention during that opening segment people, you will be tested on what you learn throughout the film! As a result, character suffers, while the visual effects reign supreme.
This is a very big and very loud visual effects movie. Big robots and even bigger monsters. The action can actually seem really brutal, and I wonder if younger kids might find it a little too intense to watch.
Best viewing format:
Massive robots and monsters should be seen on a monster sized screen. A matinée showing though will do.
The battle scenes, each and every one of them. They are huge, epic and brutal.
