Beautiful visuals in this movie, they're fantastic the soundtrack is great as well. Ben Stiller was good in the movie, the story interesting, is not a great, great adventure but it satisfatory enough to enjoy it.
Normally a fan of Stiller, so I was looking forward to this one - God dammit I'm disappointed. So much unfinished business, which means a lot of plot holes. It feels like Stiller can't decide whether to make a Hollywood or an indie so it just becomes this weird, deformed hybrid, and fails completely.
Went down like this I imagine:
Stiller got a pile of money > wanted to experiment and to be indie > forgot Hollywood expectations > went rogue and spent the money on whatever the f..k he could imagine > remembered Hollywood expectations > discovered he's out of cash > felt producer pressure > mixed everything together while blindfolded > Movie done
Starts off realistically (such action scenes would only be plausible in our imagination) but the adventure that follows would have made more sense in his dreams and then it ends in cliché.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
