Paragon Lost is a movie about a bunch of characters that you know next to nothing about, and never will, even after the film is over. The narrative itself isn't bad, and the ending is a little stroke of genius that ties in to common themes from the games, such as making difficult choices, making sacrifices, and the emotional hardships that follow. I was surprised to find that the ending... well, surprised me, but that ending, as well as everything leading up to it, would've been a whole lot more meaningful if the characters weren't such cardboard cut-outs. Other than that, Paragon Lost is mostly harmless and makes an okay "popcorn movie," even to those without any knowledge of the Mass Effect universe.
