An intriguing reason, wonderful view, and awesome impacts can’t spare the film from hokey discourse, stilted acting, and a fair plot.
One of the greatest issues here is pacing. Each scene in the film feels hurried. There is a great deal of ground to cover in an experience flick, and this one checks in at under a hour and a half. We are hence never allowed to completely put resources into the characters, which would not be an issue if the film were not intended to be considered important.
Each scene in Blood, Sweat, and Gold feels just as I’ve missed something, or if this is the continuation of another Jack Riordan venture.
