Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The plot is straightforward: Jun masters his power and saves Riel.

Con: The rules of Jun’s power seem unclear. Up until he carries Riel through his portal, we’ve been sure that it can’t be done; that Riel would just disappear the same way Jun’s mother did. That makes the big event a letdown.
