An early review from Richard Martin, a 1News camera journalist, reads: “Since the film juggles two plots simultaneously and attempts to give both equal screen time, it does feel a bit frantic in places. This does mean though that if you prefer one storyline to the other, you won’t go long without whichever it is that you prefer. As a newcomer myself, I found one is definitely more accessible, while the other likely holds more weight for long-time fans.”
