Haven't read the books, but it still sucks
8 May 2010 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I got sucked into this movie, hoping for some answers, but got none. If it weren't for a few good performances then this movie would have been a complete waste of time.

First, the good: Tahmoh Penikett is okay as the lead, but isn't that different from his other two characters on Dollhouse and BSG. Still, if you like him then there's plenty of him.

Jeananne Goossen as Tomoe Gozen was also a pleasant surprise. Not only is she nice to look at, but she gives a honest performance that saves the movie in many places.

Mark Deklin as Samuel Clemens also gives an interesting performance. It's hard to play a historical figure and he makes every scene he's in worth watching.

Also, a special note to Alex Zahara as Ludwig Durr. Here's a man who really understands the meaning of "there are no small roles, only small actors." He takes his few lines and makes the most of them. Where was he the whole movie? I could have used more of him and less of most everything else.

Now, the bad: Well, pretty much everything else. I wanted answers to what was going on. I didn't get any. In fact, you could take beginning of the movie and add it to the end and create a "mobius strip" of a movie that never ends. Seriously, nothing is answered and everything resets, so it's just a "lather, rinse, repeat" of a movie.

Some of the acting is this movie is also rather poor. It might be the bad dialog, but it the result was like watching the deleted scenes from a DVD.
