Aside from a painfully obvious plot twist, I liked it. The special effects were pretty good(not the best I've seen though) and Will Smith and Jason Bateman are hilarious. The 3rd act of the film could've been a bit better IMO but at least it all wraps up with a fun ending. So there you go, an original superhero film that actually works...
Yeah, a lot of that movie coulda been better. I wish it would have. The thing that irks me the most is that the previews make it look like a movie you should see in the theater... I think y'all know what I mean. Some movies should just be seen in a theater. This one gave that impression but did not deliver. The special effects, sound, and story were not good enough to waste theater money. I thought it was an enjoyable and fun movie. I'd give it a 7 point something out of 10 as well. It'll do well in the box office because of the previews and Will Smith. Word of mouth coming out of the theater is the same as the few that posted about it in here... good, not great... not a theater movie like the previews make it look. Fun movie though.
edit: at rotten tomatos it is only getting 36% positive right now. The consensus on it there sums things up pretty well so I thought I'd share.
