What happens when your movie is pure CGI

The actors can't act against a green screen! The film lacked the heart it was trying to evoke. Long and boring.


This movie seemed to just run long for me, and I honestly can't remember that much about it...in fact, I'm pretty sure I fell asleep during it and didn't go back to it. That's saying something because I pretty much always try to finish movies. I think the acting was decent, but it just wasn't memorable.


I really wanted to like this movie, but there is not much there there. The acting performances are quite stylized, which does match the heavily-CGI visual style and the comic-book plot level. Still, it might be a fine evening's entertainment if you're a fan of any of the principal actors or like Sci Fi/comic book action.
