This movie is a video tribute to the core elements of any Frank Miller work - violence, stunning imagery, and sexuality. Unfortunately, the over the top effects and non-stop use of slow motion keep this movie at the level of a digital version of Heavy Metal magazine or a CGI cartoon. The plot is straight forward but the emotional connection between the core characters is lacking. This is a beautifully shot gothic epic but I wanted more from the acting than I am Sparta hear me roar. Let’s hope the director’s next outing does not fore go the acting in lieu of visual effects.
