I had heard all kinds of great things and was looking forward to it. Very disappointing. While the performances were good, the film itself was overblown and tedious. The musical interludes were quite simply dull. Every time something big was about to happen, it was precluded by a terrible, slow motion music sequence. A nearly two hour film could have easily been 90 minutes and very exciting. Now, I'm a huge fan of mood pieces like David Lynch films. But those have purpose and reason behind them. This film was an action movie that desperately wanted to be artsy, but failed. The cast was incredible and did a great job. The director, not so much. Too bad. I really wanted to love this film. Thoughts?
