Very good movie!
9 November 2018 | by jmariani-69084See all my reviews

This was a great movie. It had a few issues (pacing a bit rough in places), but it was otherwise very well done

Chris Pine is a fabulous actor and was believable the entire way through. I was curious to find out how he would handle this role, and he didn't let me down. The support cast was also superb, although I would have liked to have seen a bit more development of key characters, and a little more in-depth development of this snapshot of history, but by paying close attention, the viewer can learn a lot that's not blatantly obvious. The camera work was excellent, fight scenes well-done and realistic, music score perfect.

I have to admit that I'm hard to please as a viewer, but this movie scored high with me. I highly recommend it!
