It isn't so bad as it could be.
14 January 2017 | by JanskiTSee all my reviews

The movie has turned out average what here to hide. The atmosphere of original games is almost not transferred. The plot develops promptly, but his giving is quite crumpled and some twists are simply far- fetched. Characters are registered poorly, though cast is excellent. Scenes of fights and actions are very good. Suits are picked perfectly up. Also I really like some Easter Eggs in this movie.

I can't deny that this film can not be pleasant, especially to a casual film-goer, but if you're a fan of the game I don't think you'll walk away disappointed overall.
