|i was really excited to receive this in our blockbuster mail, hearing all the hype and verbal allusions, but at the end of the night, perze and i concluded that it really wasn’t that good. it failed to compare to Gladiator, which is one fight movie that i still can appreciate.
Now, take away the extremely high contrast and color tone, the elaborate costumes and grotesque characters, and sometimes matrix fight moments, and your story is extremely one dimensional with a third person limited narrator. the movie didn’t even feel heroic, just choreography. it could’ve been Step Up- full of dance, no substance (and less abs).
it was carnal eye candy…but all sugar coating, but no substance.
it was just ok…
