Once, man and those in the water were linked. They inspired us. They spoke of the future. Man listened and it became real. But man does not listen very well.

I understand this movie is not for everyone. Night's movies take their time to reach the end. Sublety is a gift that he continues to use and some people may find it to slow. However the plot is unique and interesting. Characters are thrown in with purpose and the acting is solid. I only wish there could have been more of Bryce Dallas Howard. Fleshing out her background might have helped. It is shot wonderfully and you feel these fantastic things could be happen anywhere. Bringing out the "rules" in humorous scenes were a great way not to have it not become too cheesy. And finally the visuals were very good. As much as I like the sublety in Night's movies it's more satisfying to actually see the monsters. And see them we do. The shots of the wolf creature were perfect not only in realism but in the angles that they shot it with. Overall a very wonderful movie. I don't understand most of the complaints against it. Perhaps they are just to cynical...the movie after all is about hope.
