This is a great movie!! The genius of this movie is its approach to telling the story (1st person POV using a hand held camera - yes Blair Witch did this already, but this is a much better take). Its genius storytelling, however, is also the reason I gave it four instead of five stars (though not knocking the movie at all): when it ends I had almost as many questions as I did before I watched it (rest assured however, the questions were not of the "why did they do that?" variety, but more of the "can we see more?!?!? I want more!"). Other than some of the minor nitpicky comments one might have about the POV, Matt Reeves and JJ were loyal to it until the end and it made it so much more realistic!! This movie is awesome and succeeds in being what a movie ought to be... an experience! Bravo!
