Concept: C
Story: C
Characters: C
Dialog: D
Pacing: B
Cinematography: I suspect it's just the DVD that's crappy quality, but it looks like it's filmed on videotape. D
Special effects/design: B
Acting: It's bizarre how bad Pitt is in this movie. C
Music: B
Enjoyment: Even though the characters and romance - which are essentially what the movie is about - are corny and uninteresting, it's still a good movie. There's enough serious fantasy and horror to give it a compelling gravity. B

GPA: 2.2/4
