    So this one was a massive give and take for me, but my overall feelings are honestly more on the positive than the negative. It's a film that does certain things so damn well that you can tell that if the worse aspects of the film had been improved on then this could've been a genuine classic. For what it is though, it's honestly some flawed but ambitious fun.

    The best thing and the true star of the film is…
