Overlong, derivative, wooden acting, risible dialogue, shoddy sets and costumes, wholly unconvincing CGI... the list goes on. How does something so patently ridiculous become so insufferably dull? Deary me.
I do NOT get the dislike for this film. I thought it was an admirably ambitious and visually stunning film with great performances (particularly from Michael Fassbender) and a real sense of dread and impending doom.
