Special effects, action sequences, design — awesome!
Story, character, dialogue, acting — ??
I didn’t care about the main character. He’s stuck up . . . a rich bully who can magically build weapons but cannot think about the consequences of any of his actions. Even when confronted by his friends regarding his poor choices, he refuses to think for himself. Instead, brute force is the answer. Unfortunately, the movie ends that way . . . he never changes, really.
I know lots of guys (and a few girls) who loved this movie . . . I don’t see it. I compare it to Prequel Star Wars. Eye popping special effects, I hope the hero dies!
