the Earth and Howard's would be human girlfriend.
I never really read the comic book the movie is based on and honestly have no idea what changes or re-writes they did to it.
But the story works, the characters work, the effects are cool. In my opinion as a person who knows nothing of the comic
I liked it. And I think it deserves to be watched. 8 STARS.
I agree, speaking as mainly as a person who is in the dark of the comic book I think this is a fun movie and I don't know
why it didn't do better in the theaters but it should have. Is it a perfect movie, no. It has some character issues on how
most people were freaking out to see a duck person but other then that. 8 STARS.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ CAST (The cast does a great job.)
+ STORY (The story works.)
+ CREATURE EFFECTS (The creatures are fun and cool.)
+ LAUGHS (There are some laughs in the movie.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- CHARACTER ISSUES (The Duck Bashing got annoying at times.)
- HARDCORE FANS (Some say there was some re-writes so hardcore comic fans may not approve of the minor and I mean minor re-writes.)
