I feel like the ratings are giving this movie a bit of a beating, and unfairly so.
I appreciate that this is not a mind-blowing blockbuster, but - taken in context - it is just a beautiful dark-tale. Someone previously mentioned 'pace' issues, but I didn't actually find it a fault.
The two leads are strong and believable, even facing such a fantastical race to find a reason for what is happening. I think it is cleverly wrote to piece together the mystery.
A few other reviews have mentioned 'Silent Hill', but if you are anything like me and a big wimp when it comes to horror... please don't be put off as although a bit nail-biting at times, it is far from 'Horror'.
If you don't go in expecting it to change your life, then I would seriously recommend this film.
