Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, I didn’t think it was really so original and, on top of that, I’m not really a huge fan of these movies mixing a serious drama with some fantasy elements. Still, even if it didn’t really blow me away, it was still a really solid flick nonetheless. Obviously, the CGI and special effects were fine but, eventually, what I enjoyed the most was in fact the really strong performance probvided by Lewis MacDougall. Indeed, the guy was really impressive and I could really feel the stress, the exhaustion and the despair that this young boy was going through. The conclusion of this tale was also really strong and you can only imagine the internal struggle this poor boy was going through and it actually made sense that he might try to find some kind of coping mechanism in such a fantastic world. To be honest, the final scene showing that his mother apparently also had some connection with the monster was actually rather useless but, fortunately, it wasn’t a deal breaker. Anyway, to conclude, it was pretty good and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
