This was one pretty average movie. It surprised, but also disappointed... and in the end just didn't have enough depth, pace or attention to detail to keep me intrigued. The story reminded a bit of Left Behind, but it was the CGI that really brought it down, the action wasn't that bad, the rest of it... I can't quite place my finger on what it was that didn't sit well with me. Bad acting? Bad sceneography? Not enough action? Monotone angles, close-ups and dialog that didn't lead anywhere? There's nothing specifically bad about it, except the CGI, and yet it's definitely a B-movie experience... without the entertaining or stylistically grimy type of B that make the defects work in its favor.
What makes a good movie good? What's the difference between this and any other generic action movie that I did like? Too many close-ups, too much dialog... ineffectual and plain filming? In the end, it just doesn't hit the mark.
rated 2/5: decent
