    Terrible? This is a well-shot and very funny modern monster movie with political satire as an undertone. It is definitely a fun movie to watch, but it was different enough from a Hollywood movie to be fresh. I would highly recommend it, as well as Joon-ho Bong's other films. 9 years 8 months ago

    Excellent movie in my opinion. Very different from any monster movie I've seen in a while. I also agree there was some great cinematography going on. Some real nice looking shots. Joon-ho Bong was good. I look forward to seeing more from him in the future. 9 years 3 months ago

    Best film I've seen in a while. It's got humour, tears, cautionary message and some stylish scenes. Very enjoyable!:) 9 years 1 month ago
