This movie does nothing new. It has an extremely predictable story, boring characters that you get no information on throughout the course of it. You feel no emotional ties to any of the characters, for apparently it isn't important.
I wouldn't even give this film stars for being a mindless junk-brain-food action film... For I was truely waiting the end of the film. Some films may not claim or try to be intelligent, but atleast they categorise themselves as that - action films are action films, you accept that they aren't going to do anything but entertain you on a none intellectual level. This film however - offers nothing of intelligence, doesn't have constant action, has poor character development & a terrible story.
It blows my mind that so many people love this film, especially my own brother - who I truely admired & deemed an intelligent and tasteful man... Tis amazing how one film opinion can change my view of him.
If you haven't seen many 'AMAZING' films in your life-time, you will enjoy this film... But for anybody with any movie-taste, and has actually seen good movies in their time, you will probably see this for what it actually is.
I don't blame those that love this film, for if you've never experienced anything better than it, of course you're going to love it. I have spent a HUGE portion of my life watching films, buying dvds, and downloading them - from all time frames.
I await people disliking this review purely on the basis that I don't have the same opinion as them. This review is an honest one, and i'm saddened that if you spend enough money on something, it doesn't need any kind of story line, good actors, character development, or even decent & addictive action.
I will now go below, and read all the 5 star reviews and try to realise in my mind why people consider this fantastic.
Expensive film? Yes... It did nothing of any originality though, and it certainly didn't do anything well either, the animations of characters was fantastic, which is why I give it a 2 star - but films are about more than money.
