  • Narm: Elena challenges the cult holding Savannah with weapons raised high while a fuel tank explodes in the background. While the shot was obviously meant to be badass and awesome it comes off as cheesy.
  • Special Effects Failure: While the CGI werewolves don't look terrible, there are times where they look laughably cartoony and move way too smoothly.

How well does it match the trope?
