It must be me....

Okay so either I am missing something or I'm just the wrong demographic. I found this to be a snore from the get-go. The music is schmaltzy, the acting is reminiscent of a tv show ( and indeed many of these people are tv actors) Gary Oldman, their big star draw card, has a relatively small part ,but even then does not deserve the massive payday he got, and the story line was minimal. The only saving grace for me was the incredible make-up/costuming/cgi.
Admittedly I didn't see part one but the story was basic so there was no learning curve.
I only went because the reviews were so good. So I guess it's just me. Or is it??
