I was pleasantly surprised. It's a neat concept and it explores the idea of a spooky beach that ages you really fast. The comedic moments also helped sell some of the silly parts of the film, but overall it's very solid. I like the concept and execution and thought how they played with the visuals really worked with what they were going for.
I do see how the ending might not land for some people, but I liked it. It's goofy but fun.
This movie is a lot like the 1995 Tank Girl. It’s super campy and you can tell the studio wanted to change it to make it a bit more serious. It’s extremely silly and fun but it doesn’t quite fully commit to it. Some characters are kinda lame/poorly directed. The editing makes the fast narrative pace feel sluggish, and score is super serious when at moments it feels like it’s fighting a joke.
Not a terrible movie but it’s definitely a hot mess.
Edit: I did like it though. It’s a fun time.
