"This is often considered the last great Universal monster movie, and one of the precursors to the creature feature. And while it's certainly an influential film, it's not one that has held up considerably well. The concept of being able to film scenes underwater was a new one when this picture was produced, so there are many overlong, and considerably sloppy (by today's standards) underwater shots. The title creature is also rather silly to behold. The costume almost looks convicing until the ma"

"the underwater scenes were quite impressive especially Ricou Browning's swimming/diving with the creature suit on parts. The Gill-man suit is pretty great looking if only they would have been able to make the eyes a bit more lifelike for the costume it would still be quite impressive nowadays too."

" DVD- 1hr. 19min. First Viewing It is inherently interesting thanks to it's filmmaking skill and makeup innovations, though Creature from the Black Lagoon is a bit hamstrung by the era it's made. While there is a classic charm to the story, it's a rather bland one that doesn't start to form until the last fifteen minutes. There is, also, a serious lack of the title Creature; this is likely do to the fact that technical innovations limited the filmmaking possibilities, despite some legendary make"

" There are many things about this film that's completely wonderful. The most obvious thing is the actual design of the costume for the creature, which is unbelievably cool. I also dig the musical score that appears every time he's on the screen. He might be a little bit overused, but he's so cool that its forgivable. There are also some very nice photography in this film, particularly the underwater scenes, which are gorgeous. It might feel a bit long towards the end and I'm also slightly disa"

"OCTOBER 22: I'm way behind on my mini-reviews. I think this movie was good, but not anything to write home about. I think the main point of this movie was creating an excuse for a bunch of male actors to strut around in swimming trunks and bare-chested. I feel like if you cut out everything that didn't actually further the plot, this movie would be half the length it presently is. "
