Synopsis: a student at a magical boarding school is forced to perform death-defying stunts
Story: I’m sorry, but this one doesn’t make sense.
Subjective Rating: 5/10 (Indifferent, ). Nope, doesn’t make any sense. And if it did, it would be too rushed and jumbled and long for it to work, anyway. It has its moments, some good character bits and excellent casting, but mostly it’s a huge pile of disappointment.
Objective Rating (Average):
