Bad, bad, bad.

All the money went on the special effects because the script, acting and 3D is pants. Will post a more detailed review tomorrow.

Back from Braehead. Actually received a text saying I won another competition at 17:15 with a code. That's not good enough really. Anyhoo security took our phones not that they did much after that. Too busy watching the film. Given free water and popcorn. Both put in a bag. OH and I have given up popcorn for lent. And then an usher show us our seats. IMAX screen is huge.

As for the film it had a 'star wars' feel to it. Beautifully shot and I did get confused with the story at the start but answered at the end so that's alright. I thought it was long at times and the story took forever to be told. There was less action than I thought. 6/10

Are you sarcastic or no? I had decided not to bother with this film after seeing the very CGI heavy trailer but now I am not so sure anymore...
