Must say I was quite curious about the movie. Considering that it’s the current US Box office winner and also the look and feel of the film seemed very inviting. A couple of reviews from friends only added to that excitement.
However, sadly, the film just fell short of expectations. Agreed, the "look n feel" is great. The picturized is novel. However, somewhere I got the feeling; it was a mixture of films like LOTR, Gladiator et al. The way the characters spoke came straight out of these two movies.
The dialogue is often forced and gets repetitive. Baring the graphic novel style presentation, there is nothing novel in either concept or execution.
A let down, for sure! Wonder what the hype all about is!
