"Home - Rewatch
There are seeds of a great film here, but they're lost by some odd decisions and horrible pacing. The problem is that the most interesting characters in the film are the two villains whilst the main heroes never feel particularly fleshed out. Townsend as Dorian Gray in particular steals every scene he's in with his general sense of exasperation and campy glances. What outright kills the film is horribly glacial pacing and how many punches it pulls compared to the source material."

"One of the few films, which made me actually quite furious. I simply cannot understand how this kind of source material can be wasted so completely. It escapes me... Every actor, including Sean Connery seem to be completely lost and most of em are also complete morons to boot. CGI is ugly as hell and action scenes are stupid and all the good parts from the comics have been stripped off. Well done, sir!"
