I didn't have particularly high hopes for this movie when I went to watch it, because movies made from gama adaptations, for the most part, have had quite unsatisfactory storylines, but I must say I was quite pleased with the outcome of this movie...
Storyline: 3 Stars
Quite unknown in the world of Game adaptations, this had quite an interesting storyline, and holds the right to stand up next to the movies of it's generation, I found the storyling quite drawing and not at all tedious, it had my attention throghout, and I felt as if I had spent my time wisely.
The storyline took on a rather mystical feel to it, with a slight cult or devillish feel to it, which should draw in the fans of graphic novel adaptations like Hellboy or Ghost Rider. Certainly apealled to me at any rate.
Action: 4 Stars
It is in the action that this movie really excels. Wonderful fight sequences! Great Violent streaks! you just can't go wrong!
Music: 2 Stars
The music was good enogh, did it's job and no more.
Graphics: 3 Stars
Beautiful gaphics throughout, not overdone though. But I wish they would have done a bit of work on the lighting effects, as there were point where there was a bit too much sunlight in one spot making it slghtly hard to see... Some excellent computer graphics though!
Emotions: 2 Stars
The emotional content would have been excellent in this movie, but perhaps needed a bit of patching up. You almost felt as if you were part of it, but it just didn't quite get to the state of effecting you...
Acting: 3 Stars
Mark Wahlberg did particularly well in this role, and was quite well cast. I didn't have any problems with any of the cast, it all seemed to fit in perfectly!
I really enjoyed watching this movie, and the action sequences were superb. A sure reccomend if you enjoy a good bit of action!
