    Basically because of the nature of the structure it's taking, it starts compellingly and then gets really good and then slowly but surely winds down, offering tension to diminishing returns, particularly since there's only one actual major casualty after the first act. Well-made, definitely a good movie, but a little disappointing in a weird way.
