Vin Diesel tries desperately to set up a new franchise so that when the Fast And The Furious ends he still gets some acting roles.
Deary me, what went wrong here?
I think this might have been the most miscast Diesel has ever been, I know he says that he is into dungeons and dragons and role play and all of that but his love for the fantasy genre does not come out here, he is just playing the same character he always does…. Himself.
The only reason this film gets a 1 from me is because of Rose Leslie, she tries hard and it is sad that her career never took off after Game Of Thrones in the same way other people’s did. Ultimately though with a lead as flat as Diesel this film was never going anywhere and it is a shame she hitched herself to it.
Moreover, I understand that the budget for this film was a little on the lower side for a ‘blockbuster’, but what was with the terrible special effects? Honestly they were some of the worst effects I have seen in a long while.
Overall, this film makes Gods Of Egypt look good.
Diesel can’t act
The special effects are god awful
It has horrible pacing
It feels very bland
