My reaction
Concept:4/4 (Great)
Story:2/4 (Indifferent)
Characters:3/4 (Good)
Dialog:3/4 (Good)
Pacing:3/4 (Good)
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:4/4 (Great)
Acting:3/4 (Good)
Music:4/4 (Great)
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good, 3/4 (Good)). This sort of story (intrigue and espionage with an almost noir-ish style) really needs to be tightly wound, with everything coming together at the end. Instead, this is a wondering mess of stuff. It’s still very good, though; there’s some nice stuff in that wondering mess.
Objective Rating (Average):3.1/4 (Very good)
