This film misses the point of the story, they threw aside the human element, there’s a heart to this story and they tossed it aside for action and second rate visual effects and the mystery is not really a very well good one, you really see it coming.
Ultimately, as a complete novice to this series, I found the story and the world a bit strange and slightly perplexing if I’m being honest. It can’t be easy transferring certain parts of a manga comic to live action though, so I’ll give them a pass on that. I enjoyed some aspects of the story, I thought Sanders direction was decent enough and the cast did well with what they had. I’d recommend giving it a blast if you’ve got some spare time to kill. It was a decent enough film.
