Has many flaws, but it does have it's moments...Although very few
I will start out by saying that this movie started off disappointing because of the cinematography, it just seemed really outdated for the year 2000 when this movie came out. The trailer made this movie look pretty darn cool and has elements blended in for a great movie, but it just isn't all that effective with it's execution. It's just one of those movies that should have been a comic book instead of a movie. The movie is watchable without getting too dull, but the characters seem too much like cardboard cutouts sometimes. In fact I didn't find myself caring for any of the characters and didn't care what happens to them. It just didn't really have anything that grabbed my attention in the beginning of this film, it lacked the elements that would have made it entertaining or at least engaging. One of the main flaws of this film is that it's convoluted without grabbing the audiences attention and will not make you even care what is going on. This film however has it's moments although very few, but it does sort of picks up after a while although it takes patience to get there.
