There is no 3D. No big explosions. No dwarfs with hairy feet. What there is is a very credible attempt at making a movie with thought and twists and doesn't pander to the standard ending normally required by tinseltown.
Its a movie where the value is in the telling of the story. We all knew how Titanic would end but we watched it just the same. This movie must have had the same budget as the Titanic crew spent on coffee.
I didn't recognise any of the actors nor the locations, other than generic desert. Perhaps that added a level of freshness.
If you want to watch a movie that lacks that final coat of Hollywood polish but can still be appreciated then this for you.
