  • Ok but could have been better

    Was a good heart full film, but could have had more of an in-depth story line.
  • Wonderful story

    This really is like a fairytale, wonderful story. Great atmosphere and cinematography. I watched this with friends and everyone enjoyed it, proper cinema escapism.

    Simply the best film I’ve seen for a long time. Went 3 times to the cinema to watch it, last time a film grabbed me like that was Dances with Wolves. Cinematography is immense, the opening sequence flawless, the tension builds with effortless skill, & Doug Jones will blow you away with his acting prowess without saying a line!

    By Danaadel
    From the beginning till the end the film was a complete disaster!! I could not believe it won an Oscar
  • Very bad movie

    I just saw the movie. It is really bad. The acting, the story line....just everything. Do not recommend.
  • Beautiful.

    By Jak Luke Sharp
    Del Toro’s film is a beautiful heartfelt love letter against of the so called social norms. Not only to defy the hatred and ignorance of society, but to finally understand and accept that the path hasn’t been paved out for you, with a black woman living during the racial tensions of the 1950’s, a deaf woman living in a world of sound, a gay man living a secret life, and an amphibious creature seperated from its habitat. The production design is terrifically executed, with oils and damp dripping off the screen. Sally Hawkins is an utter delight, a true stunning performance to behold, with devilishly innocent charm. I do however, feel like the film really pushes its running time. Almost dragging at times, with a few too many subplots than it can handle.
  • Excellent.

    Absolutely stunning since my old friend Mike Hill did the amphibian designs and was on stage holding an Oscar.
