Gripping review Cas; you make the film seem like and extremely tempting controversial treat. I am one of those people you mention in the second part of your review; a conscionable atheist with a disdain for the vulgarities and cruelties of the OT. Despite that, or perhaps because of it, I'll find it hard to ignore this movie. Besides, I love a good fantasy epic.
I saw it last night in IMAX at the Trafford Centre. I thought it was tedious. The only thing that kept me awake was the stupidly loud soundtrack. Was there any need to have it so flippin loud? I had my fingers in my ears at the really loud bits. Thank God my IMAX tickets were freebies coz I would have been gutted to have had to pay to see the film
Well I really liked it- with caveats. Its ironic that DA will undoubtedly have taken some massive monotheistic flak for going in the direction that he did- peronally I'd only criticise him for not going even further.
Terrible. Boring story with some kind of rock based transformers involved and CGI twin babies toward the end. I didn't spot any pandas among the animals either which was a huge mistake on the directors part because everyone knows that pandas are brilliant. Emma Watson is hilariously bad. 3/10.
