    The Power of One

    The only redeeming quality about this film is that the soundtrack is the spiritual predecessor of The Lion King's perfect soundtrack as Lebo M and Hans Zimmer collaborated in both films -- focusing on African music and how to elevate cinema with it.

    Looking back, I think (the powa of) one out of ten is a pretty harsh rating so maybe I'll watch this instead of reviewing it out of nowhere, but -- comme d'habitude -- don't count on it.

    Nolan: …for you.

    The first 90 minutes was trash and contained everything I hate about Nolan (and it's appropriate now that I finished his filmography), and then it got better action-wise. The ending and the lasting message was alright, might watch this again.
