    I just realized a friend of mine recommended me that movie and i forgot to watch it.
    well, i definitely should since there is George Clooney in it. She says visual
    effects are amazing, no wonder since so much money has been spent. Even its
    soundtrack is breathtaking, Steven Price did a great work there, his music is always amazing.
