“This wasnu0026#39;t a bad movie if you like creature flicks. It isnu0026#39;t original, but it does nothing badly and is interesting enough to spend 1.5 hours with.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFirstly: why is it that the entire team consists of hunks and babes? Even the scientists are good looking chicks. Oh well, weu0026#39;ll just have to suspend our thinking and just accept that actors have to be good looking these days, even if their roles completely rule out looking like a supermodel.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAs for the movie itself: the action, plot (if there is any to speak of), effects and direction are OK, as is the acting.. Once again, nothing special, novel or interesting but not bad either. The editing was decent except for the action shots. Why does every editor and/or director think that they are doing an MTV clip these days? Keep the camera still! If you think I can see whatu0026#39;s going on in random .3 second bursts of film, youu0026#39;re wrong. So irritating.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe effects are OK. Although at times the caves are lit in ways that are impossible for the little flashlights to accomplish, the set is generally dark enough to be realistic. The caves look real. The monsters are not that good but they are almost never shown completely, and in doing so they are acceptable. I do wish the movie had more gore though. Being, as almost all horror movies these days, PG-13 to cash in on teenage kidsu0026#39; money, it does not show any gore besides some scratches and some ugly but very brief ceature shots.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFinal comment: I wish the movie had revolved around the first cave expedition that is shown during the introduction titles. They seemed a hell of a lot more interesting than that group of supermodels who came in later. Real men, real people, driven by greed. Oh well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDecent action, decent thrills. Not bad to kill some time with.”
