The visuals and skills of the make-up artists were impressive. At times it was difficult to recognize the actor due to their altered features. The story is depressing and at times difficult to follow due to skipping from time periods. At times the dialogue is very dIfficult to understand requiring captions to follow the story. The film should draw a large audience due to popularity of the cast which will be misleading to anyone who hasn't seen the film. Overall a disappointing film and a loss of 2.5 hours.
