Not worth the price of admission.
I like Fantasy, I like Famke Janssen; one would think combining these would make for a movie I would like... it did not. I felt like it had a lot of interesting concepts that were poorly executed. Intriguing costume choices failed to hit the mark because the lighting (while expensive looking) didn't set the proper mood. A Dark Fantasy movie with an "R" rating really should've been, well... a lot darker.
This movie was covered with a thin layer of cheese, and not one of those "This movie is SO bad it's good" (a la Army of Darkness) it was just plain bad. The plot and acting left much to be desired, during the *SPOILER* 2 deaths, I found myself completely emotionless because frankly, so were they. The trailers for the new "Star Trek" and "Warm Bodies" stirred more emotion in me than this entire movie.
Ultimately, might've been a fun movie to catch on cable one night... but it's certainly not worth the exorbitant theater ticket prices.
