Story

Very good, full of struggles and intrigue. It is definitely not what you would expect given its roots. Some of the twists aren't such much twist as big leaps. If you can forgive this then the storyline is actually quite good 

 

Animation

Nice but it is let down by the large battle sequences. At some stages the CGI used to creat the larger batle sequences is noticably bad, very noticable. It gets a little better but you want them to be over as soon as possible. The normal animation is very well done and feels very slick and it copes with action sequences many times better.   

 

Sound

The music is a nice accompaniment to the story, and is suitably sweeping and grand. The voicing is nothing special

 

Characters

The characters are well formed and very likeable if a little tried-and-tested. The 'character-twists' are very far from it as you see them coming a mile off. They are good but no new ground is broken with anyone.

 

Overall

Worth a watch, good fighting sequences and some good dramatic sections. Enjoyable. 

8/10 story
