Wow!
Great job Christopher Nolan!
Awesome!
Thank you, Christopher Nolan!

I've always demanded more action... BUT not today! Today I've finally received the action I always wanted!

Great movie, I tell you!

Fast paced from the very start till the very end! It's just incredible how it can deliver such a fast pace throughout the whole movie!
Feels like 1 hour, but it actually lasts for 2.5 hours.

Great story!
Smart, yet the way it's delivered is so accessible and the physics behind it so easy to understand for the layman.
Quite a lot twists and turns and rewrites or reinterpretations of the same situation.

Great cinematography.

Great acting.
All actors do a great job - there's some great chemistry there between all of them.

Great soundtrack.
Unusual (or even disturbing) sound to some people, but just great to my ears.

Great special effects.

Definitely worth watching at the cinema!
TV simply cannot deliver the same engagement.
TV or your expensive sound system cannot deliver the same sound level as the cinema.

I'm so sorry all this covid-19 shit hurts it's box office performance. I'm aware of all the money required to back such a project - sadly, they'll make little profit because of all this covid-19 shit.

Best action movie since Inception [IMDB], which too has been written and directed by Christopher Nolan!

Definitely deserves some Academy Awards nominations.


Conclusions


Awesome movie!
Best action movie since Inception [IMDB]
Thank you, Christopher Nolan!

Entertaining.
Awesome. Great.
Sweet. Touching.

Best dog movie I've watched since the start of the trend some years ago.

Coherent and Consistent storyline.
Smart.
Totally gets into you.
They deliver the story at the perfect pace. Just perfect. The story never drags. Keeps the viewer focused on the story from the very beginning to the very end.

Great acting.
The computer generated dog is great, very expressive :) Congratulations for the great job!
Humans also deliver a great performance: Omar Sy, Cara Gee, Harrison Ford and everyone else!
As a side note, Omar Sy and Cara Gee deliver a great performance, there's really good chemistry between them - they do deserve their rather large share of screen time.
Harrison Ford is great, totally fits in etc. - congratulations to whoever has cast him for the role!

Great cinematography, soundtrack, video editing / post processing etc.

Beautiful landscapes / scenery.

The cinema experience is a must. The movie is just too good to waste it on TV.



Conclusions


That's the kind of movie I'd like to see getting Academy Awards nominations! It surely deserves some!

Totally loved it. Time well spent. Money well spent.
