What they were aiming for with this film is crystal clear: A heaving, empathetic nation building film. And it has one thing going for it, and that’s the beautiful shots from the Savannah.
But it’s intensely boring: Every scene a cliché of one kind or another. None of the actors are compelling, either. And while it aims for epicness, so many scenes are so small and dull.
And it just goes on forever and ever and ever.
