Review by Anna:
The visuals in this movie were stunning–helped make this movie tolerable. I had no issues with the acting, both leads did an amazing job. Their acting skills couldn’t save the fact that the overall plot of this movie lacks depth as it is dampened by the romance. Seems they spend more time trying to force romance in the story rather than focusing on the main conflict. I unfortunately spent most of my time in the theater wondering when it would finally be over.
