This movie should have been so much more

I actually give this 2 1/2 stars. After watching Milla Jovovitch in The Fifth Element, I was enchanted. So much facial expression and wonderful potential as a great actress. Her acting doesn't disappoint in this film either. The others in the cast are in top form also; John Malkovitch, Dustin Hoffman, Faye Dunaway all give wonderful performances. The photography is stunning, the battles are exhilarating. And yet the movie falls short because of the poor presentation. There was no real connection, flow, or even story line between the battle sequences and her dream sequences. The editing fell short in tying the remarkable individual elements into one sensible theme. As another reviewer mentioned, it would have been better if this movie had less going for it from the start, such as the superb acting and extraordinary visuals. By the time we get toward the end of the movie when her conscious appears, I just wanted the movie to end.
