“The long-delayed young adult book adaptation finally shows up on big screen. Asia noticeably has an earlier release date. The question now is u0026quot;Is it worth the wait?u0026quot; For a movie delayed this long, people have already forgotten about it so I wonu0026#39;t be surprised if it flops at box office. This gets as generic as what a fantasy period film can be. It is packed with every cliché you find in the genre however it is still entertaining with its action set pieces, decent CGI and 3D.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe story: Jeff Bridges plays a gruff Master Gregory who has lost his apprentice (Kit Harington) during a fight with a powerful witch (Julianne Moore). Thomas Ward (Ben Barnes) is chosen to be Gregoryu0026#39;s new apprentice. And there you go, an action-packed adventure with perilous monsters and witches lurking. Nothing in the movie surprises, even the twists have been seen before. There are a few set pieces including a full-blown climax that use extensive CGI. Although entertaining to watch, they are lacking in the creativity department. Acting wise is alright. Music is generic but does elevate a sense of peril during the action.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e3D: It is surprisingly decent. I thought it would be another sloppy post-converted 3D movie that barely has depth. The 3D effects work the most during the CGI set pieces with monsters chomping right at your face. It has a reasonable amount of depth between characters and the background. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOverall: Is it worth to watch it in cinema? Only if you are interested in young adult adaptations. If you donu0026#39;t, you are not missing much. It has all the clichés what a fantasy period movie has and does not break any new ground. Is it worth the wait? Probably not. But if you are in need of entertainment, this would just entertain you for 2 hours.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eMore on: http://moreviewsed.blogspot.sg”
