    The first hour is amazing, and the inciting incident is captured in such a calculated but chaotic and horrifying way. Later on, though, the melodrama starts to push it a bit too much and scenes either get repetitive or unnecessary just based on Paquin's character making endless unlikable decisions, though her performance is very good, as are J. Smith-Cameron and Mark Ruffalo.

    Dare I say it, up there with Return of the King as one of the best blockbusters ever made. Every frame of this is perfect, beautifully shot by Greig Fraser and poetically show-stopping. A galactic epic for the ages, unlike anything ever put to screen. We've rarely seen emotion and grandiose like this in action movies so flawlessly convert to a magnetic cinematic experience. I'm a changed man.

    A modern day Being John Malkovich. Also has the greatest fart joke in cinema history.
