Viewing Notes

I ended up watching this one on our cruise while we had not much else going on during a day at sea.  Mainly because my son was watching it while he was working and I was goofing off.  This is a better film when you’re not really paying that much attention to it. Or when you skip a huge chunk of it and get right to the start of the third act when they finally start showing Big G enough to warrant attention. Don’t get me wrong, this is beautifully shot and the sound is amazing along with the score, but the characters are so bland they completely drag what should be an amazing film down.
