God bless The Wachowski Siblings. They haven’t made a hit movie since The Matrix franchise, yet they keep swinging for the fences with every movie they make.
If you’re asking, yes, I firmly consider myself in the camp of those that loved both ‘Speed Racer’ and ‘Cloud Atlas’ despite their poor reviews and box office.
Here, there are trying for epic space opera. It might be sci-fi pastiche, but then again, so was The Matrix more or less. Great artists steal, right? My only concern for this is whether or not it is asking too much of Channing Tatum to play a half-wolf, half-human warrior.
Still, considering how disappointing the sci-fi/fantasy roster was in 2013 (easily considered my most anticipated year ever by the end of 2012), it’s nice to have something to look forward to in 2014 — another Sean Bean death scene, obviously.
