That said, I can understand the opposite viewpoint here, so I'm not going to argue this, pretty much at all.
I guess. I went to see it in the theater to get drunk and watch some shit blow up. Olympus did that for me, unbelievable a premise as it was. I decided to torrent WHD, and I'm glad I did, because I nearly turned it off 4 times while watching it, but was too bored to do so. Too much little girl, too much weird dialogue -- it just took away screen time from eye candy and explosions, lol.
