Thanks for the review, Matt. This one looks good to me, though truth be told, I am perhaps most interested in hearing the score - it's from a composer I have recently been collecting scores from and am a fan :)

Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson acted the hell of this, while Gary Oldman and Carla Gugino did what they could with the little they had to work with.

But the worldbuilding was half baked, never extending further than what the plot required, and the screenplay worked against the entire cast the whole way through. There wasn't a single scene with naturalistic dialogue. I never stopped feeling like I was listening to written words being performed. There was enough in this I did like to make me wish the rest of it was better.
