    The genre-savvy commentary is so self-evidently vapid and empty that this movie would completely crater if there were nothing else up its sleeve.

    This viewing, that "I love you" crashed into me. Because of course it's a contrivance, just as every bit of messianic destiny and prophecy in the film is. All of it…
