I remember seeing it at the theater and being a total fanboy. I was mad that i did not get to see the giant squid monster on screen.
Honestly it still bums me out but everytime i watch the movie it blows me away. It was perfectly casted and i thought zack snyder nailed the tone. The opening title sequence was genius and the action is top notch.
Snyder is hit and miss but at least he stuck to his guns. This movie is a misunderstood masterpiece imo and its grown on me.
