    Excellent review. I wasn't interested in seeing this film at all and shared the same concerns as you. What you said here

    Spoiler!


    is the main problem I've had with new films for the last several years now.

    Absolutely. It's a trend that needs to end.

    Yeah, I rented it about two months ago to give it another shot. I like what they tried to do, and appreciate the little touches, but the whole thing still feels like a wasted opportunity.

    Exactly! It was almost really good but it didn't quite make it. I actually did enjoy the CGI on this one but it lacked everywhere else.

    Yeah, the CGI wasn't the worst I've seen, but I still wish they'd kept it practical.
