I just finished watching it. Great special effects, great imagination, good acting, good story. But the movie just left me feeling 'meh'. Half the time I didn't really know what was going on, the other half I was thinking "damn Mila is hot!".

So why do you think the movie failed?

I think they used so much special effects, too much overacting and too much Mila....

Haven't seen it, but from the trailers I supposed I wouldn't enjoy it: Dime a dozen plot, romance and characters, with some special effects to draw people in. Nothing particularly novel.

The special effects were pretty awesome. Like to see that team tackle The Saga Of The Seven Suns.

Great story, mediocre at best writer.
