I don't want to tell you much about the story because It contains some nice surprises I appreciated a lot and I don't want to ruin your joy of watching this movie. I loved the storyline and characters, which were a lot more original than most US productions of the same budget level.
The special effects are amazing considering the budget of the movie: one scene in particular will amaze you (don't want to spoil the fun), it could have been in any US blockbuster.
