DVD Talk review of 'Evolution'

I read Aaron Beierle's DVD review of Evolution at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=3148 and...

disagree that it's such a dog-awful film. The chemistry between the actors is good, the pace never seems to lag, the FX are excellent, and the DVD is nicely loaded with extras. The commentary track is quite animated. It's unfortunate that this movie got trashed so badly when other comedies (unfunny=AMERICAN PIE) and action films (moronic=FAST & FURIOUS) are rated much higher. But I may be wrong, but that's just me.

I don't think either of you are wrong. Different people have different reactions to movies, and if everyone agreed on everything, the world would be an exceptionally dull place. Whether or not something is "funny" is really subjective. I happen to agree with Aaron in this particular case, though.

I understand that its great to have differing opinions. And it's also the reviewer's job to offer their input. I just felt this review was far too harsh. Again, it's all subjective and Aaron obviously hated this movie. It might not be CITIZEN KANE but it certainly isn't a bad movie at all. For someone who usually dislikes comedies, I actually found this movie quite entertaining. At least worth a rental.
