Saw it this weekend with my daughter. We are fans of the old movie (Harryhausen) and enjoyed this one in 3D. Yeah it's an action flick, but the acting was suitable and the effects pretty good. Some good homage to the original IMO.
I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist, only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island, who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground.
