I was intrigued from the start, but then followed a second quarter filled with clichés to the extent that I started to think turning it off. Lucky me I didn’t. After the second half, the movie got back on track, and got better and better. After all, it’s a great adventure movie with good acting, great character development and camera work, and a successfully mixed-in social theme.
