Alternate Versions

Good try, but really not good enough
26 February 2017 | by deathngelSee all my reviews

Felt like leaving the cinema after the first 15 minutes if we weren't out in a group for a birthday celebration. No creativity, no individuality. Tried too hard to be a Marvel movie but fell short with each element a good movie should have. The sets and CG were rather poor for these past 2 centuries' standard. Patchy storyline/editing. My friends and i agreed that perhaps the best actor with the most natural acting was the old professor. Closed my eyes half the time but even the lines were so dull. Finally felt energised when the movie ended. 80% of the cinema crowd bolted from their seats and headed for the exits without seeing the post-credit scenes. I am not looking forward to the sequel even with the Chinese participation...
