Not good enough
1 March 2019 | by pennyelenabooksSee all my reviews

Evil and the Mask tried to tell a story, but failed to focus on that task. Actually, I only got half of it. The part where the hero was becoming the evil, the origin of it all, and his quest to save his first love (?). The rest, were a mess. His actual evil personality never really resurfaced, as most of the other characters were the epitomy of the drak side, while the main character looked rather than the victim of a poor up bringing, who was actually, trying to do the noble thing and save the girl... So, the story was a mess and kind of boring. The performances, however, were really good. So four out of ten.
