The film has had mixed reviews, but lets start with the positives.
The 3D is superb. It is, undoubtedly, one of the best uses of 3D tech I have ever seen: the feathers, dust, everything combines to give an amazing depth of field that is just breath-taking.
The premise and the twist is brilliant. Totally did not see that coming. The idea was brilliant.
Alas, the execution was less so. The scenes are ridiculously violent, the characters are skin deep and much of the decisions by the characters are non-nonsensical. Basically, it feels like they filmed a first draft.
Which is a shame, because there are elements of this film that suggested it could be a cult classic.
It's worth 90 minutes of your time to watch. Especially in 3D. It is not worth buying.
