ZEDD'S OPINION:

The plot is unique and dark. It's amazing how all the little monsters look alike. That's a feet in itself. A great cast, a great director and a good story. I give it..8 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

There are certain things I agree with Zedd about and certain things I don't. I found THE BROOD interesting and a strangely scary atmosphere, however it was slow. Very slow at points, it dragged on and on. I must admit I didn't enjoy it as much as ZEDD did and I must give it a mere...6 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ ATMOSPHERE (There is just the right amount of atmosphere in this one.)
+ ACTING (Powerful perfomences from the cast.)
+ GREAT CAST (I think the cast worked well together.)
+ LITTLE MONSTERS (The little monsters were pretty scary looking.)

...AND FINALLY...

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- SLOW AND DRAGGY (VOLTRON found it slow to the point of boring at points.)
