Newt's movie review

It's very un-Hollywood and that's a good thing. The story is interesting from the very beginning, and just when I thought I had things all figured and was preparing for a standard ending, I was surprised again.

The dubbing was excellent, some of the choreography was quite good, but the eww factor was definitely set high in several instances. You'll likely have to look away at least once. The story more than makes up for it, though.
