Goofs

When the priest is dropping Babydoll off from the orphanage, you initially see her signature head band placed behind her pigtails. As it cuts between her and Blue, you see it move to in front of them (probably because headbands tend to slip if not anchored, especially when there's movement involved) where it remains for the rest of he movie.

Quotes

[first lines]
Sweet Pea: Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it's us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.

Bloody amazing

The film was bloody cool and it put me through a range of emotions, and was nearly in tears, and considering I've never cried at a film that's saying something, Even if you are not a fan of action/fantasy/hot slender babes you will find something to enjoy in this film
