The wannabe movie critics on here make me want to asassinate them
This movie is based on a comic book. So crying about physics and cgi is pointless.You whine about this but praise mivies like Terminator and RoboCop? Most reviewers on here are so pretentious and use words like "tripe, trope and cliche". This is a great movie. Decent adaptation of a comic book. Great action movie in general.
