Ripley's movie review

It wasn't quite as funny as I'd hoped but it was action-packed (bit of an understatement there) and the effects/CGI were very cool. Rush was good, Bloom was sexy, and Depp was interesting. Grab the popcorn and enjoy the ride. I mean, movie.

Newt's movie review

Was it me or did Depp sound drunk the whole time?

The CGI was amazing and the editing was superb. There were a lot of laughs but not nearly as many as I was expecting but it was impressive and exciting and fun so check it out.
