|Waste Of Time - 2/5|
What really ground my gears about the film was the way in which it was written. In my opinion, if they wanted to make the video game into a film, thy should have stuck to a serious plot which could have drawn the viewer
in. Instead they tried to inject humour. Why?? It wasn't even quality humour! We got ridiculous scenes featuring An Education star Alfred Molina attempting to be amusing. He has subsequently gone way down in my estimations due to this performance.
As I have mentioned I found the story hard to follow and wildly ridiculous. The acting wasn't much better and, although I've come to expect such mediocrity from Jake Gyllenhaal, I do not expect that same from Sir Ben Kingsley or Alfred Molina.
I can't really imagine anybody enjoying this film. I certainly wouldn't recommend it to those who are thinking of watching it. It was more of a let down than Clash Of The Titans, and that's saying something.
