I can’t believe I let myself be seduced by the critics into watching this movie. It got an 8.9 on IMBD and 92% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. I give it a solid 7. There are many reasons this movie loses points with me chief of which it is based on a comic book! I have vowed to never again watch movies based on comic book characters. But no! I get dragged back in by all the hype! I liked comic books when I was a kid but when I grew up I put away childish things. Sure, this one had good writing and character development. Sure the movie had high production values and was very entertaining, but it is still a comic book! How can anyone take a character seriously who sprouts 18″ inch razor sharp stainless steel talons each time he gets riled? If this is your cup of tea by all means go see it. It certainly isn’t mine.
