Interesting premise, great locations, some striking photography and good performances but the writing was a big let-down. The plot was full of holes, the dialogue was corny ("- Where are you from? - I'm from flesh and blood.") and some of the characters were very two-dimensional (especially Cub the boy and the Loyalists). The ending was sentimental, simplistic and clichéd. Had the makings of a great film, but sadly fell short.
