This is about what I expect out of a summer blockbuster type movie. I'd LIKE to see all of these special effects tied in with a really interesting story, deep characters, and a plot that hasn't been used for the last 30 years of summer blockbusters.
Hunnam is far better in any episode of SoA than in this. He just made this weird face the whole time. Pearlman just hammed it up (nicely, but still he's way more talented than this). Elba is the only one who seemed to try to take his character out of the cookie cutter, even if it was just a little bit.
And I did like it for what it was. The fight scenes were amazing, and there were definitely a lot of them. I wouldn't discourage anyone from seeing it, I just think the character parts could have been better.
