Takes a little bit to get into, but a very good film overall.
Hugh jackman does a very good job portraying the roles of three different people with the same goal: to cheat death and look for the tree of life. a very emotional film, especially when izzy dies from brain cancer just as a breakthrough is reached, and then when the conquistador drinks from the tree of life and inevitably dies from the vegetation coming from his body. the film sends a clear message: death can only be postponed, not prevented. the musical score was also phenomenal, and the best part of the music was the strong accompaniment by mogwai. made a huge impact on the film score like no other band could. five stars!
