Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, and John C. Reilly.
Another monster movie. It’s definitely B-grade with aspirations to explore the theme between man and beast. Which is the more dangerous ?
Tom Hiddleston gets all the action hero poses although John Goodman and John C. Reilly are more entertaining. There are another dozen generic soldiers, scientists and minorities to go down the gullet of the swamp monsters. Fun & entertaining, although forgettable.
