feel slow.passable cinematography.terrible soundtrack and soundscape.
28 February 2019 | by surfisfunSee all my reviews

Feel under budget and poorly post edited. very disappointed at a missed opportunity of a great franchise. sure , some scene and characters were like the animation but too many uninspired long shot that make me thing this should have been trim 30 min. they really screw up the ambience with the quasi non existent soundtrack. this movie need to be recut, amplified the mood, maybe even re color the film stock. This is my most severe critic to date . lazy Miike care of final products or post producing cost cut by studio?
