This was based on a series of books.
This film just doesn't fit. Now, learning that it was based on a series of novels instead of just one, I understand why. There is a lack of connection with the characters.
So much was done in digital, that many of the main characters are not unique enough to know when they are talking so you get mixed up on who you're suppose to be watching.
what do i think i learned from this film?
I'm not sure I really learned much from this movie. It reminded much of the tv show Farscape.
