For want of a better word, allegorical - but only in the sense that the writers defaulted to familiar historical events and biblical story lines to compose an anti-content, challenge-bereft script. In parts I questioned whether I was watching a movie tailored to the intellectually-impaired, so banal and Dan-Brownlike were the and-then's; served dripping with saccharine sentimentality and heart-string tugging musical schmaltz. As a showcase for state of the art CGI it was...a showcase for state of the art CGI, nothing more. Recent reboot 1 nailed it; 2 flailed it; 3 failed it. Get your filthy paws off my franchise you damn dirty animator.
