I was looking forward to seeing this movie. I enjoyed it, but it was lacking something. There were attempts at character building, but they well flat. You don’t really care for, or identify with, any of these one dimensional characters. In that respect it reminded me of the old “B” rated fantasy films of the 50s, 60s, and 70s. All about action and a simplistic view of the down trodden hero. The special effects are fantastic and believable. The final action/fight scene was the least entertaining. It felt as though they had no idea what spin to give it, so maybe they just wanted to get the end over with, since it’s predictable anyway. Still a visually impressive piece of folklore telling.
