I loved the original film. I loved the sequel. I even liked the two AvP movies despite their flaws. This movie just looks like a lot of fun. I like most of the actors, and Robert Rodriguez and even Nimród Antal. I’ve already made plans to go see this with a bunch of friends, which is exactly how you should see a movie like this. I have hopes that this movie will be great, but even if it sucks it will still end up being pretty good, if you know what I mean.
I managed to get a pass to a free screening of this movie. I took the wife and a couple of friends, and we all loved it. It was fun. It was heart warming in all the right places. It had kid humor. It had jokes for the adults (and better yet, the jokes were subtle enough that your kids won’t be scratching their heads because they don’t get it because they probably won’t even notice them). But hands down, the minions stole the show. Those little yellow guys make this movie totally worth the price of admission. This movie is available in 3D, and we saw it in 3D, but I’d say the 3D isn’t required. Only a handful of scenes really benefit from it and none of them would hurt if it was gone. Well, okay, there is one part that is worth the 3D. When the movie ends, stay, as there are a few scenes sprinkled through the credits, and they abuse the hell out of the 3D.
