I can't remember which thread here but I wrote back some months ago after viewing it that it was a very good film with excellent vfx. I thought it was very good. Maybe it was in the General Movie Thread?

Oscar-worthy? Well, that's also a matter of opinion. It appears this was the classic example of an overlooked dark horse and it slipped right by unnoticed. Hardly anyone was talking about that movie pulling the upset.
