Pretty much it was as good as I expected it to be. That is – averagely good. With Keanu Reeves playing the main character, the movie was supposed to be about everything else, except the main character. And it was attempted.

The religious story with all the angels and demons was a good start, but needed more work. Soundtrack was good at some places and totally missing at others. I appreciate the fact that there were no bad parts, but I would like to have more good parts too. Acting was… What acting? It wasn’t about acting. Remember, Keanu Reeves is playing the main part, so others shouldn’t have performed better, not to create some negative balances. So they didn’t.

The only excellent part was the one about special effects. Computer graphics, slow motions, light, explosions, water splashes, and all that stuff was really good. If it wasn’t for the special effects the film would be mostly unwatchable. Technology saves the day once again.
