A good movie novelization.

Aliens are coming. From the ocean. And we have to use gigantic robots to fight them off.


My Thoughts:

If you liked the movie for the fights and the action and raw, brute power, stick with the movie. This book didn’t really portray the power side of things very well.

If you thought the movie was skimpy on characterization and mecha info, then read the book. It fills in a good bit of stuff without making the book different from the movie.

I’m usually not a fan of movie novelizations and don’t bother with them. I either want to watch the movie OR read the book the movie is based on.
