Vietnam War era movies always have the best soundtracks. When so many blockbusters are shooting themselves in the foot trying to create franchises and a mythos to follow, this movie depicts a story that needs to go no further and yet still rich with mythology. While action scenes that are exclusively giant monsters wailing on each other still fills me with mostly boredom, the human characters trying to survive in a strange world is still enough tension to sustain it. A few extra clever creatures that are more than just dinos, a Men in Black agency for giant monsters called Monarch, and John C. Reilly channeling Dennis Hopper from Apocalypse Now make for an entertaining and old-fashioned blockbuster creature feature
