Sure the fight scenes were kind of good... but this movie's pacing made me want to kill myself. I GET that we needed to understand his relationship with Girl In Flowy Dress, but seriously...20 minutes? Did we have to watch them run around the woods together in realtime? Also... don't think it could have been more over the top in the end. Not actually possible to get much hammier than that. Oh, wait... Diane Lane's giant floating head in the sky at the end of Perfect Storm. That could possibly be hammier.
This is only here because it was one of those idiotic gimmies where the Academy realizes how badly f**ked it is that Scorcese hadn't won anything for some of the greatest movies ever made. So they give him best picture for this thing, which, you know, not bad cinema... but Best Picture? Academy, hang your head in SHAME.
