Objective Rating: 2/10 (gets points for concept and special effects/design) c. 2.1/4 (Okay).

Slow and very, very long. The score is terrible.  Pacino’s performance is terrible.  The characters are uninteresting, and most are undeveloped.  There are a few okay scenes, but nothing spectacular – certainly nothing to justify sitting through this movie.
