The reason I ask, is that the trailer made it look good. Like an epic.
My biggest concern was that it might turn out to be like watching paint dry. (much like the critically acclaimed "Out of Africa".)
It is not dull. It is a movie that can't decide what it wants to be. It's like a comedy/adventure/drama and it is bad at all three. I've about had it with movies that CGI everything to death. This is a movie that is reportedly filmed in australia, but they may as well have filmed it in front of a blue screen. CGI COWS for god's sake. There is more than enough natural beauty in Australia without having to repaint the entire landscape to make it seem more attractive, certainly not to the point of making the Milky Way ridiculously detailed in nighttime shots. The pacing of the movie is not good, the acting was very, very poor, and the entire premise of the movie is just not believable. Highest recommendation to avoid.
