The first thing I faced when I heard of this movie were bad critics. Second, divided opinions of people who've watched this movie.
The Old Man of the Mountain Memorial | Remembering a Legend
I decided I should take a look and see for myself, being a fan of fantasy movies, and I didn't regret it, but I was not charmed either. The first thing, the actors. Always sceptic about introducing new kids into the movie industry, I tried to keep it objective and on low expectations, and it turned out I didn't have to because Tom Cameron Theo and Sophie McBride Rachel were really good.
They represented their characters on a high level of quality, and for that I congratulate them, since this is their first role in a movie ever. The rest of the crew was OK. Now the story. The plot has quite a lack of originality in the base of it, but some specific things are pretty interesting, which I won't reveal here in case you haven't watched the movie.
The story is a bit slow at moments, but not too much, though it is kind of in fragments. Its development didn't come out well so the end comes suddenly. Btw, the ending scene is really the best scene in the movie. The visual effects are well done, though there's a lack of those. The kids didn't use their powers much. The drones are scary, but the Gargantuas are nothing fearsome, and they should've been the scary of the scary since they're monsters ready to destroy Earth.
The atmosphere is spooky, though a bit too gray and dull at times. I had a feeling I had to see something colorful and vivid after seeing this movie. I was grossed out a few times by some scenes, which is good since that was the point, so my opinion is that the visuals are very well done.
The music was keeping the tension the story didn't have at moments, so it came out a bit too intensive.
At the end, this movie is not a masterpiece, and definitely not for those who aren't fans of the genre, but it definitely isn't bad and unwatchable. Because of Sophie and Tom, this one has a 6 from me. Start your free trial.

Seeing daylight right through the middle of Torghatten is not just an incredibly beautiful sight, it also shows that Mother Nature is full of creativity and humour. I have such wonderful memories of those special family holidays. My dad took lots of movies with his old Brownie movie camera, so we still have the Old Man in his prime.
So sad! Thanks to all the people who organized and built such a meaningful memorial. I saw the Old Man many times on my drives on the Kangamangus Highway!
So wonderful!! A wonderful memory of my younger days!! Every year while a child we went to NH from RI on vacation. We always looked for the Old Man. I was so sad when he fell. In , when I was 8, my parents took my brother and me on an epic trip to New England just before school began.
I willalways remember seeing The Old Man. Hurts my heart to think of him being gone, and I had not been aware of that. I am stunned by the active replacement so that people can get the feeling of the outcrop. As chairman of the group that has built the memorial of the Old Man I thank you for your article and update.

Thanks so much for featuring the Old Man Memorial……Come on down and see it for yourself……. I spent a week camping in Franconia notch the week before I joined the navy back in Saw the old man many times in my growing up years.
My fondest memory of him was when my second grade class came in from recess one day in , our Weekly Reader magazine was on our desks. The front page had a picture of men scrambling around on top of the forehead, attaching some of those futile cables trying to secure him for future generations. I remember this because one of the men, state workers was an uncle of mine. I always, as many of you, sort of took the old man for granted.

Then, on my 53rd birthday, he could no longer fight gravity and plunged below. My memories of N. At one time I had a colored glass liquor bottle of the old man, but somewhere in my moves and travels, I managed to lose it, wish I at least still had that memory in my hands. I grew up visiting the Old Man every year on family vacations.
My husband and I still did while we were dating and after we had married. May 3rd was a very sad day at our house. The states heritage is all around this landmark from state road signs to license plates etc. I was born in N. As a child growing up in Ma. Such a beautiful, iconic landmark! The interstate that was built nearby may have hastened he collapse. This was an issue when the proposal for the route was made public.

I remember that the collapse was predicted to occur when the interstate was built so close to Old Man in the Mountain. Stoped to see him once or twice a year growing up on our way from MA to visit my uncle in Jefferson. I brought my own children to see him several times.
