A short description of the whole movie: you insert keywords "cinematic", "slow-motion" and "timelapse" into Youtube and let those clips play at random for 1,5 hours.
This movie has no story, no start, no end. There is no development, it is totally random. Don't get me wrong - there are nice clips there and some places look amazing, but even the biggest slomo and timelapse fans would just get bored during this film... I don't know any other movie, where the amount of slow-motion has been abused that much.
This movie took 5 years to make... maybe that's the problem. Aerial timelapse alone without more than a visual content is just nothing new in 2018.
