    9/10

    The best of the three by far, here the CG spectacle becomes pure artistic imaginative colorful expression, and beyond that, it's married to the main concept of the film which is the one of make-believe: wizards are attacking the Emperor and they're using visual and audio tricks to make them believe they see monsters, dragons, fire and other elements that just simply aren't there, much like the CG work is one that is mostly…
