    ★★

    I really wanted to like this more than I did.

    The special effects were so bad. There is no reason they should be so bad in 2017. I'm knocking a whole star off for that alone. I hated the slow-down shots in action scenes. I hated the shoe-horned love story that I didn't care about. I hated that it was like, an hour longer than it had to be. I rolled my eyes so much at the sudden ~magical snow~…

    This movie took my breath away.

    ★★★½

    Definitely enjoyable, but a little overrated.

    Great performances from all the actors. I hated Walter so much in the beginning, but at the end I came to appreciate the complexities of his character. I loved Maude; unashamed, forward and totally honest in her intentions. If only everyone could be more like her.
