In general I am not too fond of the Sci Fi or Fantasy genres...but - as this beautiful (tho' sad/tragic to a similar extent) story unfolded in sync w/ splendid imagery & amazing 3D effects that somehow managed to draw me in to the same degree that they "popped out", I was captivated(!) as I have never been before by a movie! I sat there thinking "WOW...someone else 'sees things' in much the same way I do, except they are MUCH MORE creative in how they express it!" At the end of 2 1/2 hours, I STILL wasn't ready for it to end. There is so much more I could say ... but I'll refrain from it because I believe I was at an advantage knowing very little about the movie before experiencing ("viewing" is not the right word here) it for myself.
I would be remiss tho' if I didn't point out that The LORD'S name was used disrespectfully many times .... in casual, angry & just downright disrespectful ways which I found to be very distracting - & detracting since I personally find that to be offensive.
