Wasn't entirely impressed. Little character development and the environmentalist agenda is horribly present and in your face. But despite this, it still makes for a very entertaining movie with some great music and decent acting. I agree that it's morally complex, and it does a lot of examinations of the the fairness of revenge. But, on the other hand, it presents these arguments rather heavy-handedly, and the ideas that it does show are nothing new, and really rather stereotypical. 'This is what happens when you trust the government, the church', so on, so forth.
But that dinner scene, with the spoons? SO STUPID.
