Worth Watching.

Worth the watch!

Apart from the tragically predictable story, the horrible acting (I mean the scene where he wants to play basketball with his sons, yuck), the clichéd comical reliefs (angry black guy in cinema or gossipy assistant), the romcom standard music (perky piano and strings), the obvious begging for emotions, this film was true garbage.

As to more mundane matters, the scenery, costumes, and production values are good, resulting in a nice-looking film.

Definitely worth watching.

Needless to say, the movie can easily bore or annoy someone.

I found that the first one with Falk and Claybourne was much more intense and just a better film.

I really enjoyed it!

Most intriguing is the title, which Stone chose from historical/mythical origins!

It was an absolute waste of money, time and effort going to the cinema just to see this movie.
