I had higher hopes for this film, it was not as good as I had expected, I think that this was an average by the numbers superhero film except with magic.
I think that Tilda Swinton was underutilized in this film and that her talent was somewhat wasted here, I think that her character should have been better, I think that her character should have had a different look and personality, and I think that maybe she should have played a different character in this film; and so this is the worst role that I have seen her in so far, it was not terrible, but it was not up to the usual Tilda Swinton standard.
