Fine but forgettable. Russell Crowe is great, the battle sequences are a lot of fun, Hans Zimmer gives us another great score and overall it’s mildly entertaining but just not that memorable. Also, I love the look of the film but the camerawork and the editing can sometimes be really messy and jarring. In the end, I think this is pretty overrated.
