Acting: 5/5 — main and secondary characters all convincing
SFX: 4/5 — impressive but a bit unrealistic at times
Music: not a notable factor
The film gets a lot of story-telling in a two and a quarter hours. Both action and interpersonal sequences were very well done. A few moments appear more theater-like but that doesn’t detract from the realism of the film. I wonder why American films utterly fail and portraying such convincing and engrossing worlds.
