I really have not much to say on this film. It didn’t particularly wow me with the exception of the climactic battle which I won’t spoil. It didn’t really speak to me on a personal level, but it was entertaining. The fight sequences were both visually stunning and at times comical. It is something our daughter would really enjoy. It is not filled with gratuitous violence, on the other hand it downplays the violence of the situation drastically, but it works. It was a fun movie, but he is not one of my favorite super heroes.
