Note: This film is available on Netflix at the time of this review

This film is fourth in the series, (none of which I’ve seen before this one.)

The film has a great start, introducing situations that leave you intrigued along with a whole cast of characters.

The animation is excellent, (in my amateur opinion,) they’ve given character’s wrinkles and such.

I thought the film was going to be good and then the pace slowed and the scenes following the beginning were almost unbearable and, even worst, pointless.

Those scenes were definitely aimed at the male viewers of this film. Even so, I didn’t see the point in them and I’m sure everyone would’ve preferred more story and action scenes. Unfortunately, my enjoyment of the rest of the film was damaged because of it.

The action picked up after it, but the ending felt abrupt and left me even more annoyed because they could’ve made this really good if they hadn’t faffed around in the middle of it.

It wasn’t too bad and I would be interested in watching the others in the series.

To sum up, great ideas, terrible middle, abrupt finish, women’s armour is ridiculous!

Was it worth the watch? No

Would I re-watch? No

Stars: 3/6
