I was discussing the movie on another website, and came to see what the tomatometer had to say, and was shocked that it's only 50% with critics.
I don't understand what the complaint is about the pace - the movie is easy to sit through and feels to me like it needs another chapter - but take this with a grain of salt, because I'm the guy who'll sit through as many hours as you'll give me of Lord of the Rings or Avengers: Endgame.
I also don't understand why a generic story is a problem when there is good writing, effects, acting, directing, and production. I mean, every story has been told, essentially, and HOW the stories are told becomes so much more important. Sure, "reluctant person from smaller race saves the world" is old hat, but it hadn't been brought to film outside the Hobbit and LOTR cartoons up until then.
Ah, who knows. I love the movie. The scene where Mad Martigan finally gets a sword, kicks some ass, flips the sword around fancy style and falls on his ass - while still retaining control of the sword - is the movie in a nutshell to me.
