Why is this movie soooooooooo long? And how come there is no character development at all throughout the almost 2,5 hours it goes on for? That is incredible. I guess on top of that it's just not really my universe at all. I didn't dig the look of any of the avatars so in a scene that could have had potential - I guess - like the one in The Shining, it was all ruined for me because there was a fake-looking machine man running around and screaming. Two worlds that do not mix together. I also don't think they managed to elevate it above being a game so the stakes were never really very high. The worst that could happen was that you could lose all your 'loot', and come on.. I get that they tried to throw in a couple of real life dangerous scenes, but they didn't work for me.
