Review: This movie caught my attention when I saw the trailer. It’s an interesting movie that keeps you not only entertained, but interested. The cinematography and location were incredibly beautiful with just the right amount of 3D effect. The plot moved along at a good pace and it was shorter than most movies of the same genre. It stayed in the ‘now’, and didn’t get muddled down with characters going on about their past or what brought them to the wall. Best of all, this movie had a strong male and female lead that DIDN’T FALL IN LOVE. Oh, there might have been an attraction, but it wasn’t a focal point in the movie. These people were at war, and the movie focused on that.

This movie does what it was meant to do; entertain and make you forget about the ugliness of the word for a few hours. The cinematography and costumes alone are worth it.
