anyone who finds Wes Anderson's direction a bit too normal would do well to check this out.
Unfortunately the story isn't anywhere near as engaging as the direction. And ultimately Gindry fills the film with SO MUCH detail and imagination that it actually becomes exhausting and detrimental to the film itself.
Possibly some of the clunkiest dialogue ever written, performed in some of the most astonishingly bad accents ever committed to film - and a huge huge waste of the potential of its cast. This gets 1 and a half stars for a couple of good action scenes and half a star for introducing me to the phrase "mfwic"
I'm starting to think Christopher Nolan's films are the cinematic equivalent of Stockholm Syndrome - you're in the cinema for so long that you almost end up convincing yourself you had a good time.
