Gotta say, digital eye candy can be pretty astonishing. Wish I could look at the worlds they created all day. Screensaver maybe?
But as for what's going on in front of all this stunning art direction, it's all pretty ridiculous and confusing. Honestly, by the end I just got tired of things smashing and breaking for no real reason, and found myself desperately hoping the thing would just end already. The scenes with Loki were the film's saving grace; while he was around, I found myself interested. But trying to make sense out of all the rest of this slop just made me tired and frustrated. I'd gladly watch about half of it again with the sound off, and I recommend the film highly to the deaf community.
Surprised to see it's so highly rated here. Well, I guess that's what passes for entertainment today.
