• Alas the film doesn’t spook you, or deliver so much as a few cheap thrills despite the pop-out 3D effects. This is standard B-movie material that plods on for a full 2 hours and 15 minutes. Still, I’m going with a generous 2 out of five for Creature 3D. It’s an ambitious attempt, weighed down by pedestrian storytelling.

    The plot is unintentionally hilarious, involving an intrepid young woman who turns up in the forest to start a lodge, loads of extras playing chefs and petrified guests, and an alleged award-winning writer. The coming of the creature leaves a trail of dead bodies, but instead of running, our heroine declares ‘I am not going’. Drum roll.

    This is the type of film in which the human beings are so annoying that you are actually rooting for the creature that kills them. In fact, the creature had more personality than all of them put together. In an effective opening sequence, Vikram introduces him to us by only showing us isolated parts; his talons, monstrous eyes, powerful tail. I think this Creature should have demanded a better script.

    Watch Creature 3D only if you can’t sleep without watching a monster movie. Creature 3D gets one for the film, and 0.5 extra for the VFX.

  • Creature 3D is just about as thrilling as the prospect of attending extra classes during summer vacation. The only real monsters in it are the people who unleashed it upon the rest of us.

    Vikram Bhatt’s Creature-3D is Bollywood’s attempt to make a sci-fi thriller with indigenous VFX. So you must congratulate Bhatt for this.

    Creature 3D deserves a nod for attempting something different, yet we hope it had gone all out instead of playing safe and rehashing old formula to create something new.

    I guess when it’s Vikram Bhatt, always expect the unexpected! I have absolutely no reason to recommend this one.

    Bad acting, very bad story is what makes Creature 3D…

  • …a film which is meant for the masses who yearn for some ‘zara hatke’ subjects. CREATURE is a good example of what Bollywood is capable of when it comes to vfx heavy films. It surely is a promising start for more sci-fi vfx heavy movies.

    Fear definitely has a new face. If you want to get spooked and that too in 3D then, CREATURE surely wouldn’t let you down.

    Having made several films of this genre, Vikram Bhatt is very much on auto-pilot mode with all the standard tropes. It all gets very exhausting by the end. To recover completely from it, this is the advice I got “Poornima ki raat, bottled water ke saath, char bottle vodka peeni padege” Teetotalers like me have no hope in that case.

  • Unintentionally funny …How we wish director Vikram Bhatt had deviated from the tired and tested plotlines and not indulged in religious mumbo jumbo as well. Oh well, too much to ask perhaps…

    Creature is bigger scarier than Raaz and Raaz 3. If you like your scares to be anything but scarce this is just what the doctor ordered….unless you’re weak-hearted.

    Creature has novelty for the Hindi film-going audience and the fairly nice 3D effects, but a dull second half will limit its box-office prospects. It can hope to do fairly well in single-screen cinemas and in small centres, but business in multiplexes and big centres will be below the mark. In the final tally, it will prove to be a loss-making venture.

  • Creature is one film which fails in almost every department of filmmaking. Well okay, they did try. They just did not manage. Not to scare and definitely not to entertain. Bipasha Basu gets a film she needs to pull on her shoulders and she does as much as she could. Alas!

    To sum up, Creature 3D is possibly the world’s most hilarious horror/sci-fi film. You can watch it for a nice laugh with your friends. We planned to give it 5 stars for the comedy, but unfortunately it’s a horror film, so we settled for 1.

    Despite its logical flaws, Creature (3D) is a fun watch. Then again, no one goes to watch a monster movie looking for logic. This film is an edge-of-the-seat entertainer and offers enough thrills to make sure you shudder with fright.

    …this ‘hatke’ horror could have provided all the ‘jhatkas’ if the writers Vikram Bhatt and Sukhmani Sadana have opted for innovation in their ‘Creature’ creation in the plot. The cliché plot sadly wastes all the good attempts including Vikram Bhatt’s able direction.

    Watch it if you really want to

    Rehashing this tried and tested formula, Vikram Bhatt tries to give his latest venture a new face in the genre, but fails due to lack of imagination.

  • This film could have been much more, had the creature too been given more personality and heft. This is one of the few films where the antagonist must have as much substance as the protagonist. Here’s it’s reduced to being just a freak, a cursed lizard-man, out to devour people. Too bad, really.

    Somehow, Bhatt brings in a 17th century Peepal-tree connection instead of an interesting origin story. Why he always needs to link paranormal existence to some harebrained mythological legend is beyond the realms of alien understanding.

    Creature 3D shows efforts of our Indian indigenous technicians but unfortunately don’t possess the flair, which such flicks require.
