Ohh… with a lot of passion I hated this movie, the acting was awful, the characters were one-dimensional, and the style was to rip off any successful sci-fi movie of the past ten years.
Major issue for me was accents, Charlie Hunnam being the worst culprit, he puts on this deep, gravel like accent that seems to swing in between English and American and just for good measure Australian, he totally messed up the football film ”Green Street” for his failure to master the cockney accent, now he adds to his linguistic howlers with this performance.
I have big love Idris Elba, mainly for the ”The Wire” but in general he is an accomplished actor, in this film he must have spent far too much time with Charlie, in the Wire I thought he was American his accent was so convincing, in this he tries his own version of Morpheus from the Matrix and dies on his arse, everything he says is delivered with a slow bass, he starts off in American but ends up in English.
A mention on the film and the plot, it becomes repetitive quite quickly, by the end I was cheering on the bad guys as the good guys sucked so much!
One to avoid, even if you’re seven years old.
