Good Enough
25 November 2018 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

When it comes to romance, this movie had it plenty. It was a nice love story, intense, innocent and yet complicated and tragic. The two main character looked good together, though the magician looked a bit too young. Now, for the parts that I didn't like; the action scenes were good, but the CGI were bad. The back story was confusing, as they didn't really explained it well. Also, the princess's story was explained properly either. The ending, finally, could have been better. Other than that, it was an enjoyable movie, with good performances and decent settings. So, five out of ten.
