The story without those clichés and non existing character development has a great potential, however it was totally unused due to all the money they invested in this, so they were sure they will not lose any.
Well all being said i enjoyed those 2 and a half hours, in the middle i was bored like i said, but then i just stopped thinking to much and just enjoyed the visuals. All those wannabe heart warming clichés didn't touch me a little bit. And trust me I am a guy who easily cries with movies :).
I believe however, if i had 15 or mostly 16 years I would very much enjoy this title. I give it 6 out of ten for the thrilling effects.
The last lines of Pinki, when there is no more picture, only darkness left, and he dies when he said: "A sve mi se nesto cini, da sam prosao bolje od vas" or in translation: "I still have a weird feeling, that I came through better then you." - one of the best movie endings ever. Except maybe Fight club.
