My reaction
Concept:1/4 (Bad)
Story:0/4 (Terrible)
Characters:1/4 (Bad)
Dialog:0/4 (Terrible)
Pacing:2/4 (Indifferent)
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:3/4 (Good)
Acting:2/4 (Indifferent)
Music:3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 2/10 (Terrible, 0/4 (Terrible)). Well. All of the lack of film-making technique you’d expect from the early 1910s, combined with a shallow, cynical melodrama. No thanks.
