"Just watched on DVD, very poor quality at the start. I am just not impressed by special effects as I think they detract from the story and in most cases they are an addition for those that can’t appreciate a film without them. Nowadays a blockbuster must have them. To me the effects were padding which added to the confusion of the story and added at least an hour to this over long film. To understand it fully would require another viewing but I am not that interested in wading through most of it to get to the relevant bits. I really got bored with the endless snow scenes and couldn’t understand what was going on. DiCaprio seems always to be DiCaprio, exactly as he was in Shutter Island, at times Watanabe was not understandable. Not really impressed."
