It isn't that the film is bad, it's just that it's so bland at times you wonder if you're watching populist director like Ronald Emmerich trying to tackle a complex author like Dostoevsky.

Is it wrong to have higher expectations for a company that is capable of excellence, especially when it is spending upwards of $150 million to make a movie?

The CG-enhancements are so omnipresent here that they soon become the very opposite of "special" effects.

[A] cacophonous, frivolous adaptation of Ubisoft's Arabian Nights-themed video-game series.
