So much money for that!

A great cinematography to support a boring and cheesy story. The fight scenes are a big miss, not filmed properly but much more like a drama instead of dynamic moves and closer frames. The project is not bold enough and some risks should have been taken considering the futuristic semi-post apocalyptic context where the overall mood is too sanitized and proper. The bad guy character played by Daniel Wu is out of subject, limit hilarious, and should have been replaced by Sam Medina who has much more charisma and fits the part perfectly. Overall, we feel the Nolan family influence and understand a directing job and deal were given by relationship and political context of diversity and inclusion… which excludes prioritizing talent which is common mistake by studios nowadays. A huge budget for a deception at its level.
