Cons: The accents. Boy, wtf?? Those aussie accents were atrocities. Surely, they could have found 2 actual Australians to be cast in those roles.
I'm not sure about the actors playing Australians, but many of the actors in the film were British. Idris Elba's accent seemed to bounce between American and British. I had no idea what country his character was supposed to be from.
The 2 scientists. Quite possibly the most pain inducing characters I've had to endure in any movie. Ever. Worse than Jar Jar.
Surely you exaggerate. No character is worse than Jar Jar.
Oh how I wish. I'm seeing it again later today, perhaps a second viewing may change my mind. Or further cement it.

Another like I had was the subtle humour. Worked very well. And the score I thought was fairly decent. Hopefully this makes enough to warrant a sequel. Would love to return to this world that Del Toro has helped create.
