This is a movie that sadly suffers from quite a lot, while it’s very beautifully designed and everything about the world really sounds like it should pull you in and not let you go till the end of the running time, The Weathering Continent is incredibly dull and doesn’t leave you with much of anything to get you fired up or invested in. The characters are a problem because of how dull and paper thin they are, the main cast being the trio of heroes don’t have much in the way of personalities or anything that would make them interesting or engaging. Boice – who is the warrior of the trio, armed with a big sword but has the personality of a piece of cardboard and just appears very stoic, Tieh – A sorcerer who really doesn’t have much to provide in this movie other than the plot exposition, Lakshi – who while she has abit more life and soul and does have an interesting backstory, really has nothing else to offer in this other than a few snarky comebacks.
The bandits led by their leader Rakumu Gaten, doesn’t have much motivation other than the pursuit of the treasure of the city of Azec Sistra and is sadly written like a villain with “I want money and that’s my only reason for being in this movie” which is a troupe which is an instant throw away for the motivation of the villain. What boils down for the most part is that these characters are very linear and severely lack any depth or development, as well as anything that makes them interesting. Compared to how the plot feels which has a lot of potential, it drags very badly and it does a good job of being very forgetful about what the goal is for this movie.
