well, I posted that before I read Mori's review, which was quite surprising in it's upbeat enthusiasm. But prior to that, most of what I have heard, jibed with my gut feeling that there is too much story jammed into too little screen time to adequetely pay these high stakes scenarios off.
But then , Mori says he felt that DP did play out fine, so I guess the proof 'll be in the puddin' next friday.
In a way, I should be easier to please than a lot of you, 'cause I have problems with some fundemental elements of the second film.
and I gotta say, the action scenes that i see from this one look ...fun.
here's hoping...and if it's good, maybe a longer, even better director's cut is in the cards- containing some of the sequences and bits that Jon liked int he novelization.
