  • 1 stars Best picture? Really? I don't see it. Never mind that the woman loves a fish, there's not even a gradual evolution of the love story. She meets him one day and they run away together the next. I get that it's an allegory about immigration and acceptance and all that, but the movie itself still has to be good. Quirky doesn't automatically equal good. Weird for the sake of weird doesn't automatically equal good.
  • 1 stars Why is the monster basically retarded Abe Sapien? It looks like him, it eats eggs like him, it has empathic abilities like him... It just doesn´t talk. What an "originality"!
  • 1 stars Del Toro - the master of plotholes and weirdness! :D
  • 2 stars Tried to like this movie - - - I really, really did. But honestly, I didn't. And it certainly wasn't Best Picture material.....but then 2017 was not a great year for movies, so maybe it looked good compared to so many others......
  • 4 stars Good movie, although it didn't quite measure up to the hype. The reviewer below need to take a deep breath though. Trump isn't hiding under your bed, buddy.
  • 4 stars This is a critique of the USA -- the alienation/marginalization of those who are "different" by race, disability, species, sexual orientation, etc and what is revered in the USA -- the White man (Trump) and his power to subjugate, belittle, torture, marginalize anyone he pleases. It is frightening that such a psycho is seen as the "Man of the future". In the end love between two marginalized "others" triumphs.
  • 5 stars Seen it 3 times already, it's that good! The visuals, the acting, the story .... so unusual and so pleasurable. An excellent addition to my bluray collection.
  • 5 stars Best movie of 2017 by miles!! Congratulations on the Oscar for Best Picture - well deserved!!!
  • 5 stars Brilliant as always with Guillermo del Toro. Everything about this movie is epic from the storyline to the character development and costume design. One of the many successes we've come to expect from del Toro's repertoire.
  • 5 stars It’s a work of art and like a modern faerie tale
