“I don’t think it’s possible for special effects to overwhelm the story if it is a strong story. There are too many films that have been made where special effects are holding up a lousy story, or poor performances or poor direction. But as long as the direction is solid and the concept of the film is solid, special effects can’t do anything but enhance.”
