If you have a brain do not watch this film let alone buy it. A truly terrible offering from usually not bad director Del Torro. The acting is terrible, the script even more terrible and the plot is filled with pick 'n' mix cliches, they're all in there, abandoned child, I will avenge my family member, cranky father & son, commander comes out of retirement for one last hurrah, kooky scientist duo ( not funny), tick all the boxes labeled 'clueless & compleely out of fresh ideas'. A triumph of surface over substance, the flaky story if there is one is as mind numbingly dumb as the action sequences which are supposed to be hugely impressive but turn out to be hugely boring. Like a lot of so called 'Blockbusters' in this genre nowadays this film has no soul, no characters and no value. So bad it hurts.
