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.
If your takin' your girlfriend out tonight
You better park the car well out of sight
'Cos if they catch you in the back seat trying to pick her locks
They're gonna send you back to mother in a cardboard box !
