You were wrong about the monster Ro.

Don't click if you don't want to be spoiled.

Not a good enough look, but enough to say it's not a whale. tongue.gif

I'm pretty sure that chap is, if it's even real, one of the "parasites" rather than the actual Monster.

Unlikely.

For starters, the entire movie is shot from the pov of a handheld camera. That shot is looking up. There would be no need to do that with the parasites as they aren't particularily ginormous. You could get a shot of them with a handheld just by looking straight in front of you. That shot looks more like someone from below zoomed in to get a better look and OH NOES LOOK THE MONSTER SPOTTED YOU RUN AWAAAAAAAAAAAY.

Also, it was posted by guys who saw the movie and are trying to redraw the monster as best they can. It was actually posted here in the comments (once again, don't look if you wish to avoid spoilers)


Either way, when my friend went to go see it, I immediately harassed her afterwords asking what it was and what it looked like. She said that this drawing is the most accurate out of all the drawings people have done. (That's her opinion tho, but you can definitely see similarities between it and the other drawings, such as those front legs) So I would say that creature in the gif is definitely our monster.


As for what the monster is? Never really revealed although there's a hint at the end suggesting that it is most likely extraterrestrial.


Yep, I'm a spoiler whore. Waited till the movie came out to get all the goods. Did the same thing with Harry Potter, heh.


But anyways, from what I heard this movie is extremely well done with the way it was filmed and is very awesome. I'll sit out going to see it in theatres because I would probably get a motion sickness from something like that on a big screen, but on video? Hell yeah.

No fair using logic!

I've been hearing less favourable reviews, mostly about the lack of plot progression/substance. One friend says it feels more like a well done TV pilot than a stand alone film.

Tbh, I never really expected any sort of plot once the second trailer came out. Just a bunch of people running around New York in the middle of a monster attack.

So after all the hype as to what the creature is, you never really see it well or find out what it is?

Having read some leaked notes, you get some good shots of it.
Helicopter ride allows for a good view.
