I liked it. I thought John did a fantastic job, can't believe he wrote, directed and starred in something this good. I would have preferred an ending where they all died, this felt too cheesy, but it was an enjoyable film from start to finish.
My one big problem was as I said the ending and with the monsters weakness in general. Clearly sound debilitated them for a period of time, but it seems like the military or whoever would have figured this out and wiped these fuckers out. Second issue was how the fuck did these things wipe out mankind when they can be taken down with a shotgun? Sure, we didn't see someone try to shoot an armored portion of their body, but at all times at least one bit of their body was unarmored and if you shove a drone strike up that fuckers ass (based on what we saw a shotgun do to an unarmored section), it would liquefy the fuckers.
Still a cool movie, but I think just having them remain invincible/unkillable and having the whole family die or escape/relocate would have been a more sensible ending and it would have made for a more complete picture.
I mean yeah the biggest flaw is the whole sound mechanic. It's neat but has so many plot holes.
Also I think when fully armored up they are pretty indestructible barring like nukes probably. There was like stuff written on a white board about it.
I think they try to hint at the sound weakness not being found before because they didn't know the exact frequency but that's like... Not really how that works...
Also the ending was a bit bad. I am fine with the single creature being killed, but they ended it like they were going from Alien to Aliens. The transition from horror to action worked for that franchise because they were two different movies. Slapping it on to the end of a movie like that is just cheesy.This post was edited by Blah58 on Aug 18 2018 04:00am
