Loads of special effects porn. I like how somber moods have become accepted by a wide audience. The images are amazingly low light and low contrast. Some way too fast editing in the chase sequence - I got aware of it. Loads of characters wandering around alone in the wood (reminds me of Korean films). And why is the sword in that pond?
It's interesting to see that with this kind of film going into sequel 7 or so there is a LOT of exposition. They've managed to hide it more or less successfully in the first part of the film. And the director really tried to keep the lid on over-explaining things.
The scene in the coffee shop reminded me of something..
