Poetic psalms uttered amid stylized violence are disconcerting. Religion and bloodshed, though linked through much of history, make queasy entertainment partners.
Yes, but you assume that the singular purpose of all films is entertainment. Was the purpose of Schindler's List entertainment? No, but it was an astonishingly good film. I hate to draw extreme parallels but it helps to contextualise poor reviews.
