My mind was kind of lost in this festival of utterly ugly green screens and CGI, rendering more a dream-like world than anything tangible I could hold onto. It doesn't matter how great the actors are when they just deliver their phony lines in their phony world for their phony stakes. I guess it's possible to connect with this kind of narrative style, but I can't.
