The movie is visually stunning however the dialogue and plot is confusing and jumbled. It is not entirely historically accurate either and bites off much more than it can chew in terms of storytelling. Additionally, the camerawork is purposefully shaky for the entirety of the movie but does not add much to the actual plot. If you get motion sickness, beware.
