"What the hell was that?"
"I don't know. Something else. Also terrible."
I'm a J.J. Abrams fan, despite my abandonment of Lost after season 1. I enjoyed this, althought it is not his best work. I liked the "found documentary evidence" gimmick, although there were times I wanted to yell at the guy with the camera. I mean, if you are pinned down in the street, don't film your friends, film the giant destructive thing in front of you! And I think he revealed the monster a little too soon. It didn't hurt that one of the actors looks like a younger Michael Vartan, either. He is a hottie. But overall, I thought it was a pretty good summer movie, with lots of destruction. And the special effects were very seamless; I'm pretty picky about that.
