It Was Alright, Boring The Last Half
30 September 2011 | by Adam_venedamSee all my reviews

Thought it would be much better since lots of people say that this is his best film, its not that it was a bad story or anything, its just after seeing his other films I found that this one wasn't as visually impressive or had many memorable scenes in it as his others, I liked the first half better than the last half. I was bored in the last half, perhaps no dialogue helped play in that part don't know I don't know it just felt like the movie could of done more.

There are lots of greatly drawn scenes, and I love his art style just like all his other films but in the end this one was more boring than all his films
