This punishingly intense film dares to ask deeply searing questions on faith, spirituality, and humanity that defy simple answers. There is so much to consider, unpack, and reflect on from this film. It would be inaccurate to say that I 'liked' the film, but rather than I experienced it and that it caused me to go deeper within my soul to confront and process my faith like I've rarely, if ever, done before.
Seeing someone be the author of his own downfall has rarely been witnessed so closely, so sharply turn from redeeming hope to downright disaster, to view the crash happening in slow motion but be unable to turn away, or to really realise the impact not on the subject but those close to and around him.
Jolie has some great scenes and moments, but this film didn't live up to its potential and falls disappointingly flat especially in over relying on special effects.
The film really improves as it continues and it was a real thrill to see how the end of this film connected with the start of Episode IV. It was a pleasure to return to this universe.
While perhaps not reaching the heights of some previous films, this next instalment in this franchise continues to provide thrills, action, and excitement on its way to sufficient entertainment.
