    Tried to like this movie - - - I really, really did. But honestly, I didn't. And it certainly wasn't Best Picture material.....but then 2017 was not a great year for movies, so maybe it looked good compared to so many others......

    Good movie, although it didn't quite measure up to the hype. The reviewer below need to take a deep breath though. Trump isn't hiding under your bed, buddy.

    This is a critique of the USA -- the alienation/marginalization of those who are "different" by race, disability, species, sexual orientation, etc and what is revered in the USA -- the White man (Trump) and his power to subjugate, belittle, torture, marginalize anyone he pleases. It is frightening that such a psycho is seen as the "Man of the future". In the end love between two marginalized "others" triumphs.

    Seen it 3 times already, it's that good! The visuals, the acting, the story .... so unusual and so pleasurable. An excellent addition to my bluray collection.

    Brilliant as always with Guillermo del Toro. Everything about this movie is epic from the storyline to the character development and costume design. One of the many successes we've come to expect from del Toro's repertoire.

    good but not great, worth a watch but clearly not deserving of a best picture Oscar. Not an original movie plot to begin with, coupled with the fact that a lot of the movie is just pieces of recycled elements from his previous works kind of takes away from the overall affect it might have had. Like Pan's Labyrinth the villain is over-the-top evil for no apparent reason, and as usual Del Toro throws in some unnecessary gore/violence/sex scenes that I know are meant to make you cringe but mostly just take you out of the movie for being not really believable
