It had some major pacing issues, and in quite a few places the acting was overly dramatic to a point where it distracted from what was supposed to be going on. But a few incredible set pieces, and action sequences somewhat made up for the flaws it had. As of now its at #728 on my chart. Maybe with another watch it will reach higher, but as of now I doubt it.
