A dark movie, shot mostly in twilight and evening, this was a true pleasure to watch. With special effects that are seamless 99.99% of the time, a storyline that actually tracks, and some truely unexpected twists made this a movie I was glad to part with my money for.
DRAWBACKS: Some of the characters are a little hard to reconcile, since they lived in different time-periods, even by fictional standards. Erm, that is about it for drawbacks really. If you are unaware of the legends and stories that inspired the characters, this movie will be a real treat to view.
GOOD STUFF: Too long a list to complete here really. The special effects are awesome, the special abilities of the characters are true to the individual stories and mesh well in here, overall, I would even be willing to pay full price to see this one again
