I won't make this too long, as I don't want to spoil anything, but I can honestly say this film is hard to review because it had so few things to even comment on.
The single worst thing about the movie was the character progression... in that there was none. The characters were just kind of thrown into the movie in a way that made you feel like you were already supposed to know about their lives there for the make sure not to tell us a single personal thing about any of them. I kept thinking there must have been an error and we missed the first half of the film because it was going on as if we were supposed to have this connection with the people and at no point could I ever remember their names. There was even a scene literally within the first 30 minutes that was made to seem like it was a huge revaluation about a character being a bad guy and I remember thinking "oh... the guy we've only seen one other time? Okay...". Even Emma Watson's character, a huge part of the story and involved in the "climax" at the end, was on screen maybe 15 minutes in total the whole film. Ethan Hawk and David Thewlis were in about 99% of the movie and I cant remember their character names and at no point did I ever learn anything about them other than their occupation.
All in all, I left the theater wondering why I was supposed to care about any of the events that took place because, with the lack of character attachment, it all meant nothing.
