->You'll note the film avoids the most deadly of devices, the opening montage in which a narrator fills in the background of an imagined world. It kills the momentum before it has a chance to develop, info-dumping on the audience before we have people to care about. Sometimes films that provide all the needed info as they go along still have the montage introductions tacked on at the beginning. When this happens I always envision [[ExecutiveMeddling a note given by an inattentive studio executive]] falsely convinced it will clarify, rather than deaden, the action.

You will be more comfortable]]."''
