I was hoping to like this, I was ready to like this, despite hearing bad things about it upon release. I didn’t like this. This movie just doesn’t work, even though elements of it are neat. I mean, I think the world presented is interesting, but the production values are actually surprisingly low — I think Altered Carbon looks much better, and that’s a TV series, not a movie. Paul Rudd — an actor I generally love in everything — plays a character here who just makes no sense. I don’t understand what the purpose of this movie is. I was a big fan of Duncan Jones’s first two films (Moon, Source Code), and although I never watched all of his Warcraft movie (it just didn’t interest me), I was pretty excited for this, which makes me just that much more disappointed with what I ended up watching.
