I’ll keep it short, unlike the unnecessarily long movie. It’s simply too boring. The whole movie, the story can actually be done and dusted within less than an hour if it wasn’t unnecessarily extended and dragged on, and if the characters weren’t always moving so inexplicably slow.

Sure the visuals and cinematography is great, but a movie isn’t just a photography slideshow, or a TV demo. I mean, had it been called that beforehand we would all know that’s the only thing we’re in for.

Also learnt for the last time not to trust the reviews anymore, especially for new releases. I’ve seen time and time again that it’s not as reliable as it used to be. I predict the rating will fall in time (actually has since I’ve seen it). Back to pre-internet days where word of mouth is more reliable.
