Hey Guys. Thought I would drop you a quick line about the movie, it will be short in light of the plethora of reviews that have appeared on the news page.
Well I've been waiting for this movie for 6 or 8 months now, and in the time I must admit that I had managed to build up a lot of negativity about it.
Without going into great detail, I think there were 10 - 15 people in the cinema, I haven't seen ANY advertising for the movie. Even in the three times I saw Star Wars the trailer didn't appear. I was really surprised about how much I enjoyed the movie, it was a lot better than I had hoped for, the effects were bloody amazing! (as good if not better than EP1).
The only thing I didn't like was Hunter's accent, it must have been the single worst attempt at an Australian accent i have ever heard... except for maybe the voices that were on that episode of the Simpsons, well that's up to debate. The acting I thought wasn't brilliant -- but what do you expect for 27 million?
In all it wasn't a bad flick, I think I'll order the DVD now.
