The exciting comics are dishonored by a perversely contrary film both flat and dreary.
On paper, this film has all the elements of the right elements - a solid character driven director, a gritty sci-fi tone, and some stellar hot talent. In practice, the studio conflicts and director meltdowns led to a fractured experience that presents itself as such, with points of brilliance side by side with flat, inane, dreck. What a waste.
For a film that started with such a promise, they completely missed on the integrity of the characters.
