It's all very violent and the body count in this film is astronomical, but it's all kind of cartoony and unrealistic. There is a plethora of overacting, Japanese style, in this film, and there's a slew of super cute teenage girls and boys in it too. I found it all highly enjoyable and perversely fun. Accept it for what it is, and don't attach deep meanings to it and you'll find it fun too if you like action films.
Why did I hate it? Here are some of the many reasons:
- The lead actress was as charismatic and interesting as a fitted sheet. She was the most bland boring lead in the history of cinema. She gave made Timothy Dalton's James Bond look like Lawrence Olivier. Watching paint dry is more exciting and interesting than watching her mope her way through this film.
- The film was s..............l............o...............w. Excruciatingly slow. It clocks in at around an hour and a half but it feels like it's about 6 hours long.
- They killed off Greta Gerwig way too early. Once her character died, it felt like they let the air out of this movie.
