    I was really into this one for about half an hour, then I really started to get bored the further it went along. I give this film a relatively high rating despite the fact that I didn’t even finish it, though, for a couple of reasons:

    Firstly, anime is not really my thing. Never has been, never will be. No matter how many chances I give different types of anime films and shows, I find myself consistently underwhelmed. I accepted…

    Man, this is a film of two halves if I've ever seen one. The first half is entertaining, original, funny, and thought-provoking. The second half is illogical, tonally-inconsistent, and abandons most, if not all, of the interesting narrative threads from the first half. It's very obvious that this is a film that languished in development hell for years before being made.

    Will Smith and Charlize Theron deliver nice performances throughout the film, though, so that's a plus. My only film-wide…
