★★★½ Watched 31 Jan, 2018
I’m a bit confused by amount of negative reviews of this action fantasy film. To be honest it didn’t warm up to me right away, but by the middle I was pulled into the chase and characters. My best guess is that this movie is being hated because there’s a lot to be read between the lines and the screenplay makes you work hard to fill in the gaps and connect all those passing visual details/clues as well as quick dialogue lines to explain the world where magic exists and fantasy races live among humans. I’m interested to see how they will expand upon it in the sequel.
