not everything English is good.
25 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While we understand that what we watched was probably one of the numerous truncated versions, we were probably just spared a more lengthy period of boredom because of that fact.

Horowitz is a very good writer but the problem begins when the story has to be directed by someone else, in this case, a mediocre, at best, Marc Evans .........mostly a documentary director and way over his head in this.

There are not too many writers, and even fewer directors, who can effectively and engrossingly pull off multiple story lines and pull them all together into a coherent and interesting story and display their relationship to each other of the story lines .........Horowitz may be one of those, Evans will never be.

There in lies the problem for this slow, ponderous, sleep-inducing effort ..........way too much back story, way too much set-up, way too many relationships, way to many secrets to collate, and a bizarre science fiction ending out of nowhere .........not the usual for Horowitz and way too much to blend into a coherent story by anyone other than maybe Guy Ritchie .........and sadly, Evans is certainly no Guy Ritchie.

Due to all this strange conglomeration, it is difficult to say exactly what kind of a story this is ........too bad ........all the ingredients but no recipe.
