It would have been an excellent movie if the younger characters looked liked their older characters. David young character looks IDENTICAL to Stephan as an older man. Stephan young character looked like David when he was older. If what I'm saying makes no sense, this is indicative of the characters appearances in the movie. Backwards...even with height. It's like the producers realized the character flaws but decided to go with it to make it interesting. Not...a big negative review as well. Simply confusing
