My Review:

A friend of mine is a huge Paul Bettany fan (which I didn't know, shame on me!), and while going through her DVDs, I discovered several movies I liked - which coincidencally all stared him. Does that make me Paul Bettany fan? I guess you can say that, because this guy is just yummy. ^.^

But, despite Paul Bettany which I didn't really know then, I did recognize the other main actors, and I like basically all of them. However, in this mix... it was good, but I think the story was just not for them. I think it would've been a lot more effective with a more prominent cast. It came across second rate despite the cast being good - in its seperate components, anyway -, and the plot not being half-bad, but the realization onto movie screen just wasn't the best. I can't put my finger on exact points that bugged me, basically a lot of little details, and the mood didn't quite strike as good as it could've been brought across from the actors to the audience.

Rating: Plot: 3.5/5 -- Characters: 4/5 -- Drama: 5/5 -- Style: 3.5/5 -- Action: 5/5 -- Romance: 3/5 -- Fantasy: 2.5/5
Overall Rating: 3.5/5
