The most disappointed I’ve been about a movie as of late. Poor writing, shaky cinematography, awkward pacing, and rushed characters make Snake Eyes a terrible origin movie for the beloved character. Not to mention, it paints Snake Eyes in an awful light as a hero and embarrassingly ignores one of the key qualities about him that makes fans so interested in him in the first place — his vow of silence. Anyone who is a true fan of this character will walk away extremely disappointed.
The ending felt rushed and inconclusive, obviously open-ended for a third installment but ultimately left the theater unsatisfied by it. The rest of the film was excellent in providing more information about the lives of the family and the beginning of their encounters with the creatures. I feel we have yet to learn much more.
Absolutely phenomonal. I dare to say one of the best movies I have personally ever seen. The cinematography was beautiful and polished, and the plot was captivating, powerful, and heartfelt. Not to mention the acting performances by all parties were exceptional, especially by Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, and Michael Stuhlbarg. Bravo.
