This has to be one of the worst movies I've ever sat through. I couldn't recommend this to anyone. Before I watched it, I read the synopsis on digital cable before watching it and it sounded like it'd be like a winner.
The acting is awful and I'm not even sure why. I've seen some of these people in other movies and they were good in them. The one guy is so annoying that you just keep wishing that he'd get eaten by one of those stupid looking creature things.
Stephen Sommers has to shoulder most -- if not all -- of the blame for this mess. On paper, this movie had a shot of being enjoyable, but the execution was awful. How does this guy keep getting to direct big budget movies??
The creatures looked way too fake and they weren't the least bit interesting. Did I mention the bad acting? It sure wasn't helped by the dreadful dialog these actors were given to say. On top of that, there isn't a single character worth caring about. The main 'hero' guy is too much of a cocky dork to get too like and while Famke Janssen is fun to watch, she doesn't bring anything to the movie besides her looks.
There were probably only two things I liked about the movie... the intro text which sets a spooky mood (which the movie NEVER lives up to) and the final scene on the island. Everything in the middle is a big 'ol suck-fest. Don't waste your time.
