winter_elf: Sherlock Holmes (BBC) with orange soft focus (Girl & Wolf!)
Amusing, a little 'crude' but not too bad. Totally unrealistic in some things the characters do, but so far over the top that one just laughs along. Kids will definitely enjoy. Parents might groan at some stuff, but will be amused at others.

I was amused by the creatures - who very on the upper end of fantastic and way out of the ballpark. To me, they look like they were assembled by dice rolls. Head of a.... Pelican! Legs of a... hippo! Body of a ... whale! Nose of a... Elephant! Horns of a .... Sheep! LOL. Very scenic, very dramatic. 3D wasn't bad - a lot of landscape to pop.

Worth seeing - definitely worth taking the small fry.

I enjoyed it. Explosions, over the top sword fights, wild gadgets, explosions, more over the top action sequences - (sword battle on wires on a CLIFF! Oh yea! High five that one stunt guys. LOL.) Evil villany, bad guy double trickery, explosions, tanks ... oh.. and Bruce Willis. :)

Have a few drinks, don't take the brain. Not that I had any problems with the plot - but really, sword fight on a cliff?

Only one problem. THEY BLEW UP LONDON!!!!!!!!!!!! Not a spoiler. It was in the trailer. But still! *sobs* You all should know how much I love London. You can't blow up London!!!!

I really enjoyed Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. And him and Bruce. LOL. Though why replace Channing Tatum? He wasn't bad in the 1st movie. And his friendship with the Rock at the beginning was great. They had good chemistry - you could see them as friends.

Not worth 3D (come on guys - what's with all this 'after conversions'). A few funky problems in converting. And speaking of problems converting - I saw LOTS of 'glitches' and weird perspective in The Great Gatsby trailer.

Like I said, I enjoyed it - but during tax season - I'm easy to please with action flicks. Entertaining. Yes. Did my brain hurt? no.
