valerie’s review published on Letterboxd:
I was reluctant to watch this because of the whitewashed, awful casting choices but I finally did.
Firstly, the things I liked about the film: the visuals and effects are wonderful, and the acting is great too. What threw me off was the predictability and pacing. It had such a recycled and expected plot that was extremely hard to pay attention to because I already knew what was going to happen next. Also, the different dimensions, chakras, and spell magic really just hit me as wannabe edgy pseudo-intellects. These are just some of the reasons the movie was so un-impressive to me especially by how revered it was.
