At the theater I attended, this movie was uncomfortably loud! I attend movies weekly with my disabled son, who chooses the movie. He has a seizure syndrome, so we don’t attend 3D movies, since they can cause him to have a seizure crisis. I don’t know if the 3D movie version was this loud, or if the very high volume was just a local decision, but it really bothered me. My son thoroughly enjoyed the movie. The plot was a little thin, definitely took a back seat to the special effects, which were spectacular. The scene with the small girl being hunted by the huge monster might be a little overwhelming for children under 7 or 8, in my opinion. I agree with the grade “B”.
