As far as action goes, there's a lot of shouting and shooting and running about. More violence than I like, and the plot is quite predictable, to someone who likes to think ahead, but I liked this movie very much anyway. The characterisation of the individuals and the way they reacted in each situation is very realistic, which I find refreshing, and the acting is brilliant. This is one of the movies which you can just watch without being dragged out of it by bad acting. The landscape can be a little fake at times, and some scenes are exaggerated, but it seems to add to the Gothic atmosphere than take away from it. The ending was quite clear to me, but many people find it confusing. Overall, I think it was the acting and realism of the characters that pushed this movie into my personal top tens. Go and watch! Even if you don't like it, you'll at least see a lot of realistic scenarios between characters.
