And “quieter and around precise and focused in this film, which in itself provides an update of the best, but the special effects and the overall look of the film are far more better.

The sets are good, even if they are not real. The costumes are sumptuous, with great detail and weight. The fight scenes are very dramatic, as they should be for the gods in conflict with amazing wirework choreographed literal action at high altitude.
