Surprisingly short

This always feels like a 2.5 hour film, but it’s less than 2 hours by the time the credits start rolling.

It juggles multiple characters, multiple factions, and the plot keeps twisting and turning, the characters never feel underdeveloped and it gets through a big, complex story without ever feeling rushed.

To wrap all that up in 2 hours is an impressive feat of filmmaking, especially editing.
