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

Pro: The plot essentially is that she saves his life and then makes him whole. He endures the "treatment" and ultimately ponders the future.

Con: He has nothing to do with it, though, and she’s not the focus character, so whatever challenges she might have faced, we know nothing about. Consequently, it’s not much of a story.

It sure seems like she went to a whole lot of trouble for a very disappointing final result.
