My Review: THE DESCENT


Yeah, I know - this movie came out like, four years ago; why the Hell are you just now reviewing it? Because I just saw it a couple of days ago, ya zipperhead! I heard alot of good things about it, and I needed a movie to watch on the flight down, so I figgered I'd give it a peek.
I really, really liked the premise; I felt it was refreshingly original. It had many "HOLY CRAP!!!" moments, bone-crunching (literally) gore, but not overly gratuitous. I ,loved the creatures, and I'm sure they drew many comparisons to the vampire creatures from "I am Legend", but I felt the makeup and use of real actors were superior to the mostly CGI creations of "Legend". But, (ain't there always a "but") I absolutely HATED the ending!!! I loved where it was headed, but hated where it ended up.
Bottom line; 2&1/2 stars out of 4.
