Concept: 4/4 (Great)
Story: 1/4 (Bad)
Characters: 3/4 (Good)
Dialog: 4/4 (Great)
Pacing: 1/4 (Bad)
Cinematography: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Special effects/design: 4/4 (Great)
Acting: 3/4 (Good)
Music: 3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 9/10 (One of my favorites, 4/4 5/4). As a whole, it's a frantic mess. But the individual pieces are great enough to make up for that. It's best viewed as a series of shorts instead of a feature.
Objective Rating (Average): 2.9/4 3.0/4 (Good)
