I wouldn't call it uneven either, but people have called it uneven for the same reasons that I think some will call Pines uneven (i.e., both span over a long time period and are broken up into three distinct acts). There are comparisons to other films I would make, but again, it would enter spoiler territory and I'd rather you guys go into it as blind as possible.
