It’s a superhero movie. It’s one that not a lot of people know. There’s a lot of back story. The chemistry between the romantic leads is nearly nonexistent. Kat Dennings and her wit are sorely underutilized. Anthony Hopkins does a fair amount of declaiming. There are very weird special effects. The photo above feels to me like the whole movie. You know, it reminded me a lot of the Christopher Reeve Superman back in the 70s. It was hard to take it seriously in the present.
And yet, I’m still looking forward to The Avengers.
