Gorgeous opening, nice movie
15 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

There are two peoples, with gravity working oppositely on them. The camera shifts views often enough to express the perspective of the main character emoting on the screen. This sounds hard to pull off in a movie that switches so often, but it is done beautifully.

The story involves fear, exploration, and trust, with some very nice scenery, and slowly but surely unfolding story. When the end happens, you're ready for it, but it's not what you expected. It's a twist, but not a major twist.

The main bad guy is just plain evil. Well, actually, he's insane, or jealous, or something. His character is not fleshed out well enough, and he comes off as just an evil crackpot dictator. It's too bad, as it is he that drives a major part of the story.

The end in anticlimactic. It's a twist, and it fits, but it left me wondering, is that what i watched this for? It really isn't worth it, that is, if the end was all the movie had to deliver. However, the story, the visuals, and the connections make this story well worth watching. I'd give the first half 10 stars easily, but a little less overall.
