REVIEW:
Great cinematography!
The hubby and I watched this together. I had seen him play the game a few times, but my knowledge of the game is slim-to-none. I didn't know the story or the characters, other than the role he played as the assassin. This is where the hubby could fill me in, knowing the game inside and out.
The first thing he noticed was how much story they added to an already existing story, though that was minimal to begin with. There were a couple of moments that he was lost at what was happening, since it didn't happen in the game. It made the movie better though. The story got quite exciting, full of action, and pulled us in deep.
The actors were well cast in this film too. They played the scenes well, which were also very vivid and brought it all to life. It was so interesting, even if you had no knowledge of the game or its existence. For those that know the game will agree some of the scenes are spot on! It was such a good movie!

4/5

REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…
