Subjective Rating: 5/10 (Indifferent).
Objective Rating: 7/10 (points off for concept, story and subjective rating) c. 3.0/4 (Good).
It’s a good movie, I guess, but I’m indifferent. I wouldn’t have complained about the story while watching it (it kept my interest), but then it ended and not much had really happened.
