Del Toro's best after Pan's Labyrinth. Gorgeous to look at and has a beautiful message. Loved the score by Desplat, and the performances are really solid.

Man this was great, the worst hung about it was that I had to pee and there’s water in every single scene. Other than that it was great though!

I wanted a masterpiece like Pan's Labyrinth, so maybe I set it up in my brain for a fall. Turned out to be...just pretty good. Certainly lovely to look at, but it's no Pan's, and I admit I'd rather rewatch Pacific Rim any day.

Just a manipulative, trite, empty film.

A majestic, otherworldly fairy tale about love and outsiders, that is visually stunning and boasts a beautiful score. Hawkins is captivating and Shannon turns in another great performance.
