"**take this in mind before viewing***
most of the reviews written are biased and can't be taken seriously. Does no one want to just take a movie by face value anymore?
Everyone has commentary on its content, how it was done, the ending, the action and fx during the crucial points.
This is how you need to watch this movie:
Go into it as you would view things when you are a child!! Don't expect anything except to have a good story told. Its in this way that you get a really great story from the movie.
I feel that when people say the ending is crap, well, they have a skewed sense of things. Thats basically been the same ending for the past 70 yrs from the original of the original books. Does everyone need a "kick in the face" type of ending. BAD GUY LOSES, GOOD GUY WINS. YESSSS!!!!!!!
I find it hilarious that people can't stand it if no one wins or the good guy dies or EVERYONE dies or if there is just the mystery left.
Does anything in life end so definitively??? the answer is mostly no, so in that case, why would movies always have to end with a definite conclusion!?
Just accept that the stars do a GREAT job interacting, don't be so harsh and judge the movie off of what seems to an INCREDIBLY narrow-minded perspective of action/sci-fi/fiction movies.
When you open up your imagination, stop caring about fx and needing an evil vs. good super ending of battle to the death with a definitive ending, thats when you realize this is an amazing movie.
it is a mystery movie, plain and simple, and if you can't handle mysteries, this is not a movie for you.

"Typical of old movies transferred to blu-ray, nothing better than DVD; I would say not to waste your money but I've noticed that some of the blu-ray versions are actually cheaper now than the DVD."
