  1. Great review. I loved it as well, and reading your review made me realize I think I liked it a lot more than I first thought.

    The ending has one of the most amazing scenes I’ve seen in a while. Very emotional, and incredibly well done.

    Right before that scene, you’ll notice there is about ten minutes worth of action where the camera angle never changes, and the entire scene is filmed in one large take. Incredible work… something most people probably don’t notice, but that is so hard to pull off.

  2. You’re right. Unfortunately the DVD copy we had contained scratches, or something, so the 10 minute sequence near the end was interrupted twice. I’m sure we missed part of it, but it was still amazing.
