What's it about
Itís about gargoyles of course. Big, nasty CGI gargoyles causing havoc. Itís also about over acting and Romanians with curiously American sounding accents. Mostly itís another sure fire entry in Michael Pareís eventual VH1 Where Are They Now? special.
Is it good movie?
Is it a good movie? - That really depends on how much you enjoy watching monster movie marathons on the Sci Fi Channel. At the opening credits I looked at my girl and said, ďIf this thing delivers boobs and a beheading then Iíll give it 3 starsĒ. It only got half way there, but fortunately it was a pretty cool beheading. And I have to say that while the titular gargoyles are hardly feats of CGI mastery, they do get the job done in a suitably cheesy way.
So is this a movie you should take the time to check out? That really depends. If you watch it in the right atmosphere (liquored up with free-spirited women and tons of Chee-tos around) then it just might make you smile. On the other hand, if you take it on merit alone, the flick doesnít quite get there. Youíre probably better off with BLOOD SURF, SWAMP THING, or entries of that sort to get your monster madness fix. You can also check out the vastly superior Q (for Quetzalcoatl) to sate your things swooping down to eat people jones

What extras? Donít they know this is the kind of movie that begs for a commentary track?
Not a good movie, and not consistently bad enough to be great cheese. Iíll admit that on some level I did sorta dig it, but just like with lap dances, YMMV.
