I saw this last night. If you didn't like Red Dragon or Hannibal, you probably won't like this. I took it as a story by itself and enjoyed it well enough. My wife thought the lead actor was sexy, if that helps anyone make a decision whether or not to see it.
I actually loved the Governor's men taking out the army. It made sense too how he took them out. He distracts them with the "Hey, everything is going to be fine, I am a friend with a white flag and we are going to be fine.
