Terrible movie. I don't normally put in a review, but had to this time. Do not waste your time. No point to the movie. I'm glad I didn't waste requesting this movie on Netflix. It just goes to show you that just because a movie is made doesn't make it good. What a waste of good talent in a pointless movie.

Well-done film, surprised me with it's depth since I thought it would be mostly silly. The monster premise was fun, but they also followed through to make the rest of the story interesting and give the characters depth. It was more of a drama than I was expecting but it still had me intrigued and engaged throughout. I liked the ending as well, it was a bit of a surprise.
Trigger Warning: movie depicts a violent and abusive relationship!

Terribly bad movie. What was the connection to South Korea? Why was she a monster and Jayson a Robot? Why was the children's playground area 'magically' connected to South Korea?
Why was Jayson a bi-polar psycotic, was he abused as a child? Ugggg...

A bizarre story line, but strangely compelling. I liked it.

I was unpleasantly surprised by this movie. The film is actually dark and strange but not even in a good way. I honestly couldn't figure out what it was trying to be.
I thought it might be a fun movie, it really wasnt.

It's not your usual movie. The monsters are the props for greater story. IT may be not your cup of tea, but movie is original and smart. You may need to watch it second time to get motivation , character development and symbolism. It was worth watching.

Although my partner and I watched the whole film, it took some effort to do so, as this was too weird, disjointed and made no sense. Even Anne Hathaway could not save this film of an alcoholic, and the other main character, a psychopath (played by Jason Sudeikis), and a couple of other bit players. It took three quarters of the way through this film, before I thought, I was finally seeing a point to this character study, but was ruined by the ending. Just did not see a point.
Ms Hathaway was credited as one of many executive producers, so I guess she saw some redeeming value in this 109 minute film, but was disappointed to find that there was no documentation to help me figure out what it was, as the Special Feature, provided no clues, as it only showed a US cut of the same film. I skimmed through this to see if the ending was any different, but saw none, so do not know why the bothered with two versions, if in deed there was any difference at all?
Not recommended.

I found this surprisingly enjoyable, and compelling throughout. A practice in suspension of disbelief, for sure, but I liked this film and would recommend it.

Early scene - excuses:
I got into the car at 2. But then, I was going here. Well, I thought I was coming here. But then Georgia, wanted to go to the loft. You know I want to head home, so then I had to go to the loft. And when we got there, he was like... Well, now I want to take a nap. Then I'm waiting for her, until she wake up and then... I fell asleep. I have been asleep all day.
===
Listen...Georgia wanted to go, I didn't even want to go.
-Who the fxck is Georgia?
Natasha.
===
Well, you know like... if the monster only attacking Seoul... then all the rest of the world would stop caring, you know like... all the cease fire that happened.
