Anna Did you enjoy that film, David?
David Yes, I did. The characters are often a bit boring in action films, but in this one, I thought they were very interesting.
Anna I agree. And weren’t the special effects great? They were really spectacular.
David Yes, but rather unrealistic, I thought.
Anna But they often are, aren’t they? That’s why they’re special effects!
David And the soundtrack was very interesting.
Anna Yes, it was. It added to the suspense, didn’t it? Some of the scenes were very scary.
David Yes, and very violent. I couldn’t look sometimes.
Anna Yes, there was too much violence. But overall, it was great.
David Yes, it was.
