My reaction
Concept:1/4 (Bad)
Story:1/4 (Bad) It starts out promising, until they run out of ideas and give somebody god-like powers.
Characters:2/4 (Indifferent)
Dialog:2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing:0/4 (Terrible)
Cinematography:2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design:4/4 (Great)
Acting:3/4 (Good)
Music:4/4 (Great)
Subjective Rating: 4/10 (Eh, 2/4 (Indifferent)). Moralizing nonsense, made nearly unbearable by terrible pacing. There’s enough script here for a 30-minute episode, tops.
Objective Rating (Average):2.1/4 (Okay)
