But don't worry. It never stoops to this level.
HERE.) To put it bluntly: AMAZING action sequences, BLAH characters, and forgettable/weak storytelling. Why oh why oh why is it so hard to accomplish excellence in all three?? It had me in the beginning, lost me in the loooooong middle, and tried to win me back in the end...but unfortunately it felt too little, too late. The problem is [SPOILER] the best and most interesting character, played by Bryan Cranston is killed off way too early on and underdeveloped bland characters are left to carry the rest of the movie on their inexperienced shoulders. [/SPOILER]
So....same advice applies as with Pacific Rim. If you want to love this movie, turn off your brain and enjoy the very cool show. There's a lot to enjoy, it's good enough...but it could have been great. EMILY RATING: 6.5/10
But at least it wasn't THIS
