Re: Now That John Logan Has Proven Himself, What Went Wrong With Nemes
For me, one of the biggest problems with Nemesis is that the movie does not flow right. It does not feel like a coherent story. It feels more like a series of action scenes loosely tied together. You can almost sense in the editing as if the director was going "can we get on with the talky scene because I want to do the next cool action scene now". Case in point, Baird stripped several key character moments from the movie because he claimed it ruined the pace of the movie so that he could get to the action scenes faster.
Completely agree. I'd like to add that it also seemed that the cast was not taking the movie seriously. I mean, I think they knew this was going to be a no-brainer and they were going to get a paycheck no matter what.
