Overall do not rate this highly at all, don't waste your time.

Unexpected Fun on a Friday Nite .

Overall though the movie was enjoyable.

It was very enjoyable, loved how the kids confronted their fears and supported each other

Oh my hell this movie is so terrible lmfao DoNt watch it, waste of time and resources, acting is bad, story's awful.

Special effects are laughable, action sequences are predictable.

Worst movie ever .

But for adults who are looking for an entertaining alien invasion movie, this isn't it.

The lazy script offers very little in the way of surprises, with obvious stereotyped characters, blatant telegraphing, a glut of deus ex Machina, daddy issues for all four youngsters, crude humour and tiresome pop culture gags and references, none of which are clever or funny.

This is a silly film with a flimsy plot but if you don't expect a Spielberg film, it's actually enjoyable.

Enjoyable Flick .

Well, I enjoyed it.

If you want to see typical cringe worthy moments, predictable scenes, cheap lines and vine wanna be actors...

This is a great film I enjoyed it fully and would recommend watching it

We enjoyed it for what it was and we thought it was reminiscent of cheesy 80s-90s films like The Goonies.

Just boring, cheese and clueless .

Even though I enjoyed it in a terrible kind of way, I really felt depressed because they had a great opportunity to make this a great movie.

It is just painful to watch and a total waste of time.

Cue up every horrible cliche you can find and you have this movie.

Awful movie, waste of my time .

We enjoyed it!

I enjoyed it, apart from three things.

If you still think The Goonies was awesome, you may like this boring movie with annoying stick characters spouting bad one lines non stop.

What a waste of time!!

Takes it's stranger things (+ obvious nostalgic ones) influences and creates something definitely worth watching.

This movie is not good, dont waste your time watching it please

So entertaining that I upped my rating from 6 to 7 just because of those rare fun moments.

Funny and entertaining.

but expect an enjoyable action movie perfect to download for a short haul flight.

It was a great film I enjoyed it the child actors are amazing.

This is the worst movie I have seen in a long time.

It was a funny and entertaining movie!

) made "rim of the world" boring and so predictible

So predictable...

This is an entertaining family film which is not at all bad.

The rim of the world has a very predictable story, which, quite frankly, is boring.

Entertaining for kids only .

It's fast paced and I didn't feel it was a waste of time.

After cheesy one liner after another and countless innuendos I realized it was a pointless movie with tons of filler writing.

This is an enjoyable film so, if like us, your happy to get under a blanket with some snacks and get away from being an adult for a while, this films for you

There were a few pointless dialogues, yes.

Enjoyable watch .

The soundtrack was enjoyable.

There was literally no story of the movie and the same goes for the screenplay.

There are quite a few low scoring reviews that say this is the "worst movie I've ever seen" or criticize the "poor effects.

Don't waste your time with this movie there are still a lot of good movies out there.

It's that predictable.

Speaking of the dialogue, it's so generic and empty that they may as well be reciting a modern top 40 hit.

I definitely laughed and really enjoyed it, please don't go in expecting some ground breaking movie, if you are looking for a good silly laugh this movie does it!

Shallow and predictable.

TL;DR We enjoyed it, and thought it was a fun weekend movie to watch.

Totally enjoyed it.

If it's free and you're very bored, watch it.

Entertaining .

I found it thoroughly enjoyable.

A waste of time .

If it's under 5.2, be ready to waste your time.

I like a good coming of age story, and I love sci-fi action movies.

Worst movie I have seen all year...

0 acting skill, -10 direction, no story line,.

They try to insert emotional scenes in the last 45 minutes but I didn't care because they started with action and everything else just seemed rushed and boring.

If they'd cut all that out, and made it a bit softer, it would have been an OK kids film, no Goonies, but entertaining enough for older kids.

Absolutely vile don't waste your time

Enjoyable especially if you liked Stranger Things .

The film has zero charm, 90% terrible dialogue and tiresome characters.

But all in all, I found it enjoyable.

We watched during a family film night and really enjoyed it.

Few bad words but kids enjoyed it.

This just results in a weird and confusing movie.

What more can I say, a waste of time.

This is a terrible, waste of time movie.

It's entertaining and I'm thankful for that!

After watching a series of less-than-stellar kids movies with my kids in recent months, it is a real joy to come across a movie that is exciting, engrossing, sometimes heartwarming and never boring.

The characterizations are good, with some decent thrills and overall the movie is entertaining enough to spend one and a half hours with.


Comedic fast paced alien invasion Netflick .

Most movies aren't very good, but this is worst movie ever..

Entertaining enough.

Poor acting by most, awful plot, no real direction, and far too predictable.

This is a very enjoyable movie some of the bad reviews I can only assume are by people without a sense of humour who are probably very boring in there own life's give this movie a chance and ignore the bad reviews it's very funny in places the acting is very good the kids are very likeable if you have a sense of humour and don't take life to seriously you will enjoy this movie

I think some of the music was enjoyable, even though it was forced so hard down our throats similar to the alien sticking his reproductive member down someone's throat (there it goes again, you're welcome).

This might be a teen kind of movie but I found it actually pretty enjoyable to watch.

I enjoyed it!

It was stupid, predictable, fun, and laughable.

Plot is standard alien invasion but with no real plot.

Entertaining .

So bad that it's entertaining .

Fun and entertaining flick.

Plot - thin Acting - adequate Effects - last Gen Cinematography - mediocrePlease for the love of all that's holy, don't waste your hard earned free time.

Entertaining and enjoyable to watch with suspended imagination.

If your bored and have a few drinks on hand on a lazy Saturday, I would recommend this movie to anyone, although it is more directed towards the 12-15 year old target audience.

As can be expected of Netflix lately, the charactors smack of meeting diversity quotas and give us characters that are so utterly contrived.

Kids with no likeable personalities, except maybe for the Chinese girl, boring plot and a typical low-budget execution.

Pros: Visually okay, and kinda entertaining up to a certain point Cons: Horribly written, unbalanced plot, and awkward dialogue and characters Highlight: Those alien beasts are some darn good CGI I rate it: 7/10 (good)---- Originally published on my blog.

The first mistake people are making is comparing this movie to coming of age films like The Goonies or a famous sci-fi like Stranger Things, even though it was never advertised as such.

Enjoyable throw back to the 80's.

Don't waste your time!!!.

I found it cute and enjoyable.

The monster scenes are so illogical and boring.

This was so good it was entertaining, funny and an enjoyable way to pass time, it took so much from the original jurassic park films that i couldn't stop laughing, the only reason I didn't give it a 10 was because of the language, otherwise i definitely recommend it!

Very enjoyable film to watch, not too sci fi like, enjoy it for what it is, a teen+ alien thriller.

Well done, most enjoyable!

What a snooze fest.

I was bored and this was featured on netflix so I decided to see what it's about.

dont waste your life time watching this trash flim .

Don't waste your time 😉

Don't waste your time .

Quite an enjoyable film.

Yes it's a goofy movie but definitely entertaining, that's what movies are for, for cryin out loud!...

By accepting the narrative pact of the ability to survive in extreme situations of the protagonists, the film is truly enjoyable and flows beautifully until the end.

The movie used every sci-fi / teen movie cliche possible.

Most of the plot was predictable including every twist and turn.

A waste of your time .

An exciting kids, summer camp movie with aliens and adventure.

So bad it's entertaining .

Enjoyable Popcorn Flick .

Don't waste your valued time watching this.

The WORST movie you've ever seen?

Entertaining .

Waste of Time .

Enjoyable for all kids 8 to 80 .

Totally entertaining movie for families with older kids to watch together!

don't waste your time .

I really enjoyed it for a nice popcorn flick.

The film then quickly morphs into an enjoyable alien invasion movie.

Dont waste your time .

It's kinda entertaining.

This movie is extremely predictable.

This is a fun coming of age throw back movie.

The plot was basic , the jokes were cliché and the dialogues were so silly.

Don't watch this as an adult and roll your eyes at the derivative, predictable characters.

Overall, I enjoyed it for what it was.

Enjoyable film .

It definitely has a 'Stranger Things' feel to it so it's worth watching if, for nothing else, to satiate the long wait for season three.

The movie is enjoyable and fun to watch.

sorry, I fell asleep while writing this.

Overall enjoyable: 2 You're probably thinking, "You just trashed the majority of this film, so why are you giving it a 2 for enjoyability?

The amount of racial and sexual references were unexpected and funny.

This movie suffers from gaping plot holes,awful dialogue,terrible vfx, nonsensical romantic pairing and predictable/cliche stereotyping.

It's jam-packed full of so many character and film tropes that it's predictable and hardly funny.

Everything is so predictable.

Beside the Deus-Ex-Moments its sparkeld with too much cliche.

Very Enjoyable movie for all the family .

And don't get me wrong, it is an entertaining movie with quite a few good moments.

This film is crude, stereotypical, lazy and a waste of everybody's time.

Enjoyable to watch, nice FX.

Charming coming of age movie during a just will do fine alien attack .

Don't waste your time.

It's a charming, compressed coming of age story situated during a compulsary standard apocalyptic alien scenery with plenty of political and sarcastic references for adults which will make you smile regularly.

One thing that really holds this movie back is its confusion over its adults tones.

Fast paced entertainment .

This movie is lots of fun and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

The predictable storyline, bad jokes and worse acting made the almost cringeworthy to watch.

A horribly cliched mess of a movie, this teen oriented action adventure sci-fi comedy from Netflix is predictable garbage that completely fumbles it's attempt to cash in on the spunky group of kids '80s-style revival kickstarted by Stranger Things and IT (it's so uninspired that it even has its young protagonists riding mountain bikes).

Enjoyable .

Enjoyable, funny, relatable.

The action is so intense and full of exaggeration!

If your bored out of your mind then...

Every movie that Netflix makes seems like something is gonna happen and then nothing happens, all the hype for nothing.

It's an entertaining Saturday afternoon flick.

It's entertaining, has comedy and explosions and some exciting scares and chases.
