I’m quite divided of what I really thought about this movie, half of me liked it and enjoyed it and the other half found it quite boring at the same time. I will explain…
Visually the movie looked awesome and I think it had some elements that reminded about the game (not sure because I’ve really never played them that much last years), and the action was good too and together it made a great impact… however what didn’t work in this movie was the most important, there is lack of storytelling here, you never really get to care so much for the characters that much and you find your self wondering sometimes what the hell is going on here, because they don’t explain some stuff that probably were explained in the game… so viewers that hasn’t played it before will surely find them self lost here. It’s not the actors fault, what they do is good but they needed more time to evolve.
If you played a lot of the games and you like action movies there is something here for you ;) otherwise I’m not so sure this is a movie for you.
