Just saw this, wasn't expecting much, but went to see it on a friend's b-day kind of thing...
Was actually pleasantly surprised. The story wasn't bad, and other than it being difficult to imagine Jake as a "Persian" (especially with a faked
English accent), the acting was decent. Ben Kingsley was excellent, of course. But, the real scene-stealer was Alfred-Molina's less than reputable
businessman....(with an odd fascination for birds).
It was actually a pretty decent film, much to my surprise. My only real issue is that parts of it seem almost made for 3D, but I didn't see that as a
showing option anywhere. Once you see the movie, I think you'll see what I mean. Still, was nice to get a pleasant surprise at the box office.
