Reel Snippet – Mass Effect: Paragon Lost

Mass Effect: Paragon Lost initially came off as a very run-of-the-mill tie-in movie to a game. Bogging it down was rather sub par animation, inconsistent characterization, and a character the was annoying at best and hazardous to his teammates at worst. However, this all changed in the end when the story took a gut-wrenching turn that lingered with me long after the movie ended and made this really feel like a Mass Effect story. From a fan’s perspective, it’s great to see the action of the games translated into full animation, but it’s also a little jarring when en effect happens that’s wildly different from the source material. The last five or ten minutes truly are gold and make up for the rest of the movie, making this a strange inversion to the original cut of Mass Effect 3. Ironic, seeing as this was supposed to promote that game. I’m not sure if I can recommend this to non-fans of the series, but fans will find a bit to love, even if they find themselves slogging through the mud and trenches to get there.
