Promising, but disappointing
4 March 2015 | by (Antwerp, Belgium) – See all my reviews

I was looking forward to this movie, despite it's IMDb score.

I loved the mood & setting, loved the creatures, loved the historical twist. But I'm just sick and tired of the forced character roles, where men are portrayed as dumb cowards or brutes, and women as brave and strong.

It would have been easy enough to balance the roles out, and create a more interesting dynamic. As it stood, the characters were just irritating, and stood in the way of enjoying the movie.

Too bad, because the rest of the movie was pretty good. Especially the sets, props, and creature designs. I just couldn't enjoy it because of the roles the cast had to play. Very disappointing.
