The energy of the movie drives the flick while the plot makes you thirsty for answers. The storyline’s overarching narrative juices your curiosity throughout because it never becomes altogether clear. Most shows would fail for this complete ambiguity. However, the directors score because the otherwise frustrating obscurity develops with Einsteinian genius, thus providing a refreshing new take on the crusty old hero tale.
This stimulatingly murky plot compliments the flick’s postmodern overtones. Questions regarding morality and reality leave you wondering what is true and seeking resolution…a perfect cliffhanger for a sequel, but you can’t shake the feeling that these ultimate answers will never come.
The drama nevertheless is intense as battle scenes emit suspense and awe. Emotional allure is just as penetrating as the adrenaline hyping cinematography. No doubt the story writers score high by evoking emotive tragedy of Shakespearian levels. They should remember though that it is never good to kill off all your main characters when you are planning on making a sequel that must explain the first installment. Shakespeare could do it, but he never planned for a series.
