But Scott takes his time to tell the story, and at the showing some complained the movie was too short. My question is, how many of the dice in the last combat roll would be ignored? Leo finds a holographic recording of his older self, advising his younger self to return to Earth, enjoy more adventures, and to eventually lead a migration from Earth to Ashlar. Meanwhile, Batiatus is troubled by false news that Ovidius' son still lives, and Ashur uses the chance to have Barca killed to avoid repaying the winnings owed to him.

I've been this close to mountain gorillas in the wilds of Africa, impressive creatures that could literally tear you apart, and felt no fear whatsoever.
