It wants to be cute, romantic, artistic, nostalgic, funny, and sexy. And it tries too hard. Plot progresses based on the notion of "they are a cute couple and should be in love" instead of character development (if any). The number of clichés is unfit for a sober mind.
You all have heard about its eye-popping, thrilling, entertaining, and electrifying actions and adventures, and yes, they are all true. On top of all that, this has got to be one of the most carefully choreographed action films. Each scene - the composition, the body language, the movements (including camera), etc - is an exquisite design in impeccable coordination with the music score. When characters make eye contact you can literally see how their sight travels across the screen. If you plan to see this film again (like I do), watch how the visual is in perfect harmony with the sound. It's seriously a stunning musical in disguise.
One extra star for casting Cumberbatch. He out-performed Quinto.
Like a human mind, you can never predict when and which way this film is taking a turn, or if at all. When dealing with the subject of "cult", it looks in like a curious onlooker, full of respect and scepticism, ready to commit and withdraw at the same time. It's an extraordinary, original drama that touches and moves one's innermost sense, be it love or sex, or most likely, both. Yes, we're not animals. And we are animals. Phoenix and Hoffman's performances deserve highest commend.
