I watched it last night, i agree that it was a little darker than I'm used to. Shadow detail was a little disappointing. I agree, the make up was not the best and I found myself concentrating on their faces. All in all, a decent movie rental, pretty interesting content, for sure. Leonardo was excellent, as always. A good movie, not great, but good. But it was refreshing not to see any cgi crap in a new movie.
