But... Well, I am sorry. When I saw the synopsis of this movie I thought it looked like a great action adventure. When I saw its IMDb rating that impression hardened. Then I saw it was nominated for three Oscars, including for best writing and best directing...
Well, I am sorry. Again. And again. Sorry. While I get why it was nominated for best cinematography I can't understand what is the writing nomination for... Really. May be the source material was exceptionally well adapted??? If that is the case, then the source material is cr@p. Sorry. Again.
The movie started really well. Introducing the characters and their goals, setting the story up... And then it all went nowhere. Oh, of course, a lot of things happened, the plot moved on... But as time passed it made less and less sense and by the end I realized that everything the characters did, everything they fought for, everything was completely pointless. I don't want to go into details but that is the truth. The writing is completely horrible. Instead of developing the characters the writers decided to give the actors a few info-dump lines about their back story. And half of the main characters didn't get even that! How am I supposed to know them? How can I like them? Why would I care about what happens to them? I didn't.
But the cinematography was stunning.
