One of the most honest films about young childhood to reach theaters in several years.
Science fiction that rivets the attention, excites the imagination, and engages the mind.
Has an exuberance for life without seeming to fall prey to every Hollywood cliché in the book.
The narrative effectively marries the character based-aspects with the mystery-thriller ones.
This accomplished, exceptional piece of cinema delivers summer-scale spectacle.
This is a vital, original, and emotionally potent chapter to one of the longest-running movie series out there.
The film works primarily because of its big heart and ability to engage our emotions while not turning off our brains.
Works as a fantasy, an adventure, a dark comedy, a story of love between a girl and her pet, and a vicious satire.
Its combination of good pacing and a willingness to tell a story remind us of what summer movies once were.
Doesn’t compromise and for those who love a grittier, less audience-friendly flavor of horror, it’s a must-see.
