Mocktales 2 was a big hit in its initial release and has been making a ton of money in its second week. Its a real stunner, if you are looking for something that will put you on the edge of your seat, this is it! The casting for this film was outstanding and the action was intense from start to finish. The entire cast did a great job. They all did a great job on their parts and made it feel like the right parts of the film were being played. Overall, this was a great movie and I would definitely recommend this film to anyone.

As a first time moviegoer, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not only good in many ways, but it was also very well written and had a strong moral. At first I thought that it would be a waste of my time, but it was not. As a science fiction horror, it did not feel cheesy, and it actually had a good plot. There were a few jump scares, but it did not take itself seriously. It was more like an homage to the slasher genre, where many of the victims in the slasher films have all been brutally murdered and reanimated by a mad scientist. In this movie, it had the characters reanimate into modern day zombies. This was an effective method of showing the whole horror genre that the zombies in the horror movies have not died by fire and natural causes, but were simply reanimated by a mad scientist with an advanced laboratory. So what is the moral of the story? It is that once the humans started reproducing and settling down, and what happens to the zombies is that their mother reanimates them, and when they are mature enough to raise their own kids, they too can reanimate. What else would you expect?

I'm a movie fan, and enjoy watching a good Sci-fi film. I've seen this movie about 5 times and have been reviewing on IMDb since it was released. I didn't have high hopes for this movie, but my expectations were met. The movie didn't live up to the hype, but it was a good, different film. I gave it a 10 because of the uniqueness of the story and the special effects. If you are a Sci-fi fan, and you want to see a good film, then this is a great movie to watch. I recommend it to anyone.

this is probably the only zombie movie i have ever seen in my life. i never understood why anyone would like this movie, but i have to say i did not expect much. this was a very entertaining film. the story is simple. a group of people and a laboratory decide to study an insect who looks like a human. when they were ready to make a proper experimental treatment they made a mistake, and the experiment failed. the people and the laboratory were destroyed, and the insect disappeared. i think they should make a new film about this insect. it would be more entertaining than this movie. i think the storyline should be more interesting. as i have not seen this movie before i have no idea what the story was about. it seems that this movie was directed by a video-toy director. this is why i didn't think this movie would be very good, but it was. this movie is worth seeing. in my opinion it is a very good movie. but I think it would be very boring if the movie was only like this. other than the original movie there is nothing else to say.

First off, I'm a huge fan of horror movies and I don't have a problem with a lot of gore. That said, this movie is the best movie I've seen in a long time. It's great! I can watch this movie over and over again without getting bored. I also like the fact that the movie isn't completely predictable. So the movie can be scary, but there is suspense, there is a story line, there are characters, and there is a reason behind everything. It's a great story line and there are plot twists that keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time. That's my first good thing about this movie. I also liked how the movie is a little different from the other horror movies of the year. The way they make the characters, the way they set up the storyline, and the way they throw in a little bit of romance. They also go into depth with the characters. It shows the audience a lot of back story and is able to add the suspense, the mystery, and the mystery itself. They also portray a little bit of humor and let the audience laugh along with them. The acting is also amazing. The acting is perfect. It's one of the best movies of the year. The movie is entertaining, it has suspense, it's got characters, and it's got a reason behind it. It's a great movie, it's very entertaining, and it's amazing! This movie is a 10/10!

This movie was the first time I was so scared I wanted to get up and run out of the room. I read the first review and thought it was crazy, but I decided to go see it anyway. It was the only movie I have ever rented, and was also the only movie I haven't bought. I thought this movie was just too good. It had great special effects, suspense, and great actors. The fight scene was so good I cant wait to see it again! I hope this movie gets a better review because I am so disappointed with the one in the past. A+ 10/10

When I first heard about this film, I had no idea what to expect. This was supposed to be an action thriller that relied heavily on the fact that it was taken out of the underground market and was released in theatres. The trailer didn't really convince me, and while the film was only released as a limited theatrical run, I decided that a first-run screening would be a better way to catch it. I was not disappointed. At first, I thought this would be an action thriller that focused on one character. But once the film began, I quickly realized that it was a thriller, but one that the hero and the audience really cared about. The movie itself is a bit slow at first, but the protagonist, whose name escapes me, gets the audience to care about him, and you learn a lot about him. I thought the film was actually pretty good, and it made me want to watch the sequels and the director's cut. And then I saw it again. How is a movie like that supposed to be good?

Saw this film at last week's Fantastic Fest. Much better than expected. The problem is, the film has so much stuff going on, that you can barely keep up with all of it. However, a good film, to me, is the sum of all its parts. (Like the real Tom Cruise said in Pulp Fiction: "Well, it's the sum of its parts.") There are so many things going on that it can be hard to keep track of everything. (Like you would if you had to watch the same film two or three times.) Also, the story just keeps shifting and shifting, and it keeps you guessing. So, I can't give you a good overall review of the film. I will just say that it's one of the best films I've seen this year. It had me hooked right from the beginning. I enjoyed every second of it. The cast was excellent. But the movie was all about its stories. Lots of threads of story going on. The movie was enjoyable and it was a good movie. I give it 10 out of 10.

What could have been a brilliant film turned out to be a mess. The action sequences were actually rather weak. And it made it hard to understand the difference between good and bad guys in the action sequences. However, it was actually a very good film, and I was glad that I had the opportunity to see it. The premise was really good, and it had a great villain. Unfortunately, it was undermined by the writing and some of the acting. The actor playing the main hero, Josh Brolin, was way too good looking and he acted like he was being "made up" to play a superhero. Even his action sequences were lacking. And the villain, Dante Basco, wasn't a very compelling character. The only redeeming quality of the film was the cinematography. The special effects and the scene designs were brilliant. And it was very well-acted. I think that it would be best to watch the movie without the subtitles, to be able to get a better grasp of the characters and plot. And I really feel that it would have been better without the subtitles, but the strong music made it quite impossible to understand the dialog, which is really the main flaw of the movie.

Don't waste your time and money. I'm surprised no one has commented on this movie.

It's funny how filmmakers from other genres, like horror, comedy, war, espionage and action, are even turning out films based on sci-fi, and they just don't seem to know what to do with it. Well, the filmmakers of 'Thief' know, and they turn it into the finest action film of the year. 'Thief' is a classic, and a very good example of what good action films should be. 'Thief' isn't about action, it's about characters, and what you expect from them. The main protagonist, played by Ben Kingsley, is a thief who doesn't know the difference between a good or bad guy, and it doesn't really matter, because he's willing to do anything to get what he wants. If that sounds familiar, well, you can also see it in the brilliant performance by Julianne Moore as his partner. She's so perfectly drawn in her character that it's difficult to tell what she's doing, but it's also difficult to see how she's doing it. Every time she breaks out the whip, I just can't help thinking about her. And that's what makes her so good in this film. The other protagonist, played by Josh Brolin, is a police officer. He's a good man, but he's just too inexperienced, and his arrogance doesn't fit with the level of his profession. It's hard to understand what he's doing and why he's doing it, but he is clearly out of his league, and he is surprisingly inept. I think this was the genius of the script, though. It's not hard to understand why he's incompetent, but I don't understand why he is. I think he just wants to get away from the bad guys and his bad luck, and that's what he thinks he does. His character is so much more interesting and believable than the others, because he doesn't know why he's so inept, or even what he does. I really wanted to know what he was doing. But it's not really the point of the film, is it? The point is that we all want to see great performances in action films, and Kingsley's is absolutely amazing. I've seen him in 'The Dictator', 'The Bourne Ultimatum' and 'Eyes Wide Shut', and he was the perfect counterbalance to his predecessor. I've seen him in 'Fast and the Furious', 'Pulp Fiction' and 'The Killing' and he was just brilliant in each of those. I would also like to say, that if you are a big fan of comedy, you should go and watch 'No Country for Old Men', and don't be put off by the fact that there's a lot of action in it. 'Thief' is just another example of how good comedy can be used to bring out the best in action. It's almost a shame that so many comedies nowadays are too serious. One of the things that makes action films work so well is that we have a good line of characters to root for, and that is what is so important about this film. You really can't go wrong with the three principals, Kingsley, Brolin and Moore. If you're looking for great acting, then you should definitely check out 'No Country For Old Men', but if you want a story, and a few

This is a great movie. Much better then most low budget productions. I give it a 10. It's a great movie. I don't think they should have changed anything about it. It's the only one I've seen that is very true to the novel, I've seen the other two written by Cary Vickers and it is definitely one of my favorites. The whole film is very tense. The dialogue is very good and the whole thing flows very well. The only thing I thought was a little unrealistic is that the car could just jump over a concrete wall. There are a lot of real-world scenes in the movie. It's more about the children's innocence than how they would respond. But it's very well-done, it's a really good movie. I recommend it. If you haven't seen it, rent it.

this movie really changed my life for good. i dont think i will ever go back to watching the horror genre on tv again! it had a story that was interesting and the characters really made me care about them. if you like a well made story that is a good mix of action, drama, horror and thriller and a nice plot it has you covered.

This movie is awesome. I really liked it because it's hard to find a movie that's good. It's about a group of people who all live in a world with viruses and bio-organic weapons. So their job is to go into every country and kill the soldiers who made the weapons. The movies is very fast and when it ends you are like "wow". I was really surprised that the action was so well made. If you like movies like Die Hard you will enjoy this movie a lot. Also the movie has action and it's good. I don't have too much to say about this movie but it's very good. If you are looking for a movie to see it in the cinema then this movie is for you. It's great.

For the first 10 minutes of the movie I was getting really annoyed by the small cast and crew and had the feeling that I might have to leave. But I don't think I would have gone to the cinema again if this movie was a tv-movie, it is definitely a movie not to be missed. This movie is unique and so well done and you will like it. I like the actors and actresses they have chosen. It is really a beautiful and dark movie. I enjoyed the entire movie and I found that very difficult to watch because I felt very uncomfortable and I almost shed tears of frustration at the script, but I had to admit I enjoyed it. At first I was getting irritated and frustrated about the small cast and crew and the small director, but I tried to remain open to the movie and just enjoy it and feel really connected to it and this movie is so cool and i wish it was a real thing. Maybe I am a little cynical, maybe I am just not used to movies that involve that much bad acting and weird and dark scenes. I really love the movie, and it is one of the best movies I have seen and I want to give it 10 stars. I am a very big fan of movies and have been watching movies for my whole life, and I am a big fan of the director and the actors and the whole cast and crew. I am going to watch this movie over and over again and I think I am going to see it again. I am really glad I did and I think it is a really cool movie.

I've seen the film and it was really good, I liked how they made the movie feel a bit realistic, i really like that. but the part where we all die is a little bit cliche, but that's the whole point, is that the whole city is going to be wiped out, i don't see how they could save everybody, and also i don't see how they would even make the bomb, there wouldn't be enough of it, I also didn't understand why they didn't put any warning on the tower. maybe they wouldn't have had a problem, I didn't like the scene with the people escaping, the security guys were just laughing and didn't even bother to check them. i liked how they showed the security cameras, the same way the viewer sees the people running away. I also liked the scene with the dog and the reactor, i didn't know it was possible to do a movie like this, i wish they would have put some more of those scenes in, some would have just been unnecessary, they should have filmed more things like that. The endings are good, there is also an ending that isn't really so good. i didn't like the fact that there wasn't any kind of explanation for the fact that the place was destroyed, like it was some kind of zombie virus, which would explain why everybody in the world was killed, i know that's how the movie would have ended, but it didn't need to be explained, if you just get the bomb from the first place, you should have an explanation why everyone was killed, it's just like a typical apocalypse, people would be killed, no one would be safe, and also, i really like the way that it's not just one person, but many people with the virus. 10/10

How do you deal with all the animals in the world, no matter what species, when the human population is declining at an alarming rate? It seems impossible but a team of animals, who work for a company called IMMENSE, bring in a special code, which has the potential to become the key to saving humanity. There is a series of mini films, including the popular ALIEN prequel, which explore the story of the IMMENSE team in a few different settings. But the last one is the best, as it also deals with the end of the world. And the films are tied together nicely, as they show the breakdown of society and how we react to it. These films are watched with a lot of interest by both children and adults. The dialogues are clever and the whole thing is stylish. Although I personally didn't like the ending, it was still a great ending, just like the previous films. Overall, a great film, and I recommend it to any sci-fi fan.

I love this movie. It has a great cast, amazing FX and I like how the movie keeps you guessing. It's like if you've been living in the future and are still alive and you have to find out who's alive and who's not. Great ideas, great stories, great action, great everything. Great casting, great FX, and the best ending. Great Movie. 10/10

This is one of my favorite zombie films. In this movie we have an amazing cast of zombie's, led by a great John Carpenter. There is a great storyline, and a great story line. This is a Zombie movie for all ages. We have more science fiction films with zombies than any other film genre. The cast is great, and I think that everyone can identify with a person or persons in the film. A very entertaining movie.

There are so many great reviews for this movie. The majority are full of praise, and for good reason. The film is well made, with no plot holes, and the action is non-stop. There are no talking heads in this film, so the audience gets to follow the characters and watch them act, while the film doesn't ask them to. So as a result of this, we get to understand the characters, and for that alone, the action is amazing. I've watched this film at least 6 times, and it's always worth watching, no matter how many times I see it. There are a couple of plot holes that are sort of easy to see, but for the most part, it is good. I love the use of voice overs, it gives the story a lot more depth, and we get to know more about the characters, which in turn helps the plot. I don't want to give anything away, but for the most part, this movie is fantastic. I love the plot, and the characters are memorable. If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you watch it, then come back here and see my review, and then, to help you decide, I give you my vote.

I have never written a review for any movie, but after seeing the quality of this movie, I have to. I thought it was a great little movie. I am a little young, but I do not think a kid would be this good. The humor is so realistic, and the emotions so realistic, that if a 10-year-old read this, they would find the humor extremely difficult. I highly recommend this movie to any fan of monster movies, comedy, and other movies. This is a must see!

After the poorly received and far too short "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol", "Hostel" director Eli Roth has a much better film ready to show the world. The film stars an excellent cast with compelling performances and even better special effects. "Hostel" is not just a horror film, it is a bizarrely fascinating, sadistic, and bizarre thriller. Many will compare this film to "Silence of the Lambs", and rightfully so. Both films are very similar in how the characters are made to suffer and how they are put through hell, but "Hostel" is much more believable. Hostel is such a disturbing film, with a hidden dark side that is not presented so overtly. There is no denying the sadism of the film, and the victims, but there are many other things that are great about this film. "Hostel" is not for everyone, it is quite dark, very violent, and just plain weird. You may have to suspend some disbelief, but that is the point. This film is different from anything I have ever seen before and is one of the best films I have seen all year. It is disturbing, horrifying, and unique. This film is great, and you should see it!

I've been looking forward to this film for quite some time. I think everyone should see this movie. This is not a "waste of time". This movie is fantastic. I've not been a huge fan of sci-fi movies, but this one was fantastic. I love the characters in this movie and how the story continues. So many things are done well. I think the actors do a fantastic job with their characters. The characters and their backstories are very compelling. If you're a fan of sci-fi movies, see this movie. The special effects are amazing. You should also check out the real special effects in the movie. The story is good, it is a believable sci-fi movie. The acting is great, and the characters are great. There are a lot of things to see in this movie. The first one i saw was "The Martian" in the theater, but this is the most cinematic movie I've ever seen. The movies is not all action or horror. It's a story that is not for the squeamish. But there are some moments that will make you scared. I think it is a really good movie, and this is going to be a classic in the future.
