Concept: 4/4 (Great)
Story: 3/4 (Good)
Characters: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Dialog: 2/4 (Indifferent)
Pacing: 4/4 (Great)
Cinematography: 4/4 (Great)
Special effects/design: 4/4 (Great)
Acting: 3/4 (Good)
Music: 3/4 (Good)
Subjective Rating: 8/10 (Great, 4/4). Intense and impressive. I do have to say, contrary to every review I've read, that I think this would still be a great movie on a small screen. The giant IMAX spectacle is nice, but it's the suspense that makes the movie work. (And regardless of how well it's done, 3D is annoying.)
Objective Rating (Average): 3.3/4 (Very good)
