In an era where things things that were once taken lightly are now treated with respect, and everything is done on an epic scale, this should be pretty good. I never played the game, although I wanted to, nor did I read the books. I did play some of the video games and enjoyed them immensely. I also happened to like the movie they put out. It was good for what it was on a cult film level.
Will this be a “Can’t Miss Flicker” or a “Meh, I’ll wait for it on NetFlix”? We shall see. After a few minutes of thought, the above image is what we may see with the current prevailing winds in Hollywood, at the moment. I am OK with that.
