I love movies and have a passion to become a film critic or something related highly to cinema. I love to read books that are made in to movies. My rating system is:
4.5- One of my favorite movies and can honestly watch it over and over again
4- Very enjoyable and really like and will show my friends and family
3.5- Pretty good and will watch it again in a couple months or so
3- Average, maybe watch it one more time; if it's lucky twice
2.5- A one time only movie, may watch in a couple of months to see if it was that bad
2- Pretty bad movie, will never watch it again
1.5- Horrible movie, why did I spend so much time watching this
1- Putrid film; pure garbage; absolutely hate this movie
The first half of The Descent works as a claustrophobic thriller that truly leaves you on the edge of your seat, while the last half maintains the gore and thrills to come to what should have been a satisfying conclusion.
