Everyone is going crazy with the fact that this movie apparently addresses some racial issues or whatever. To this I say, “it’s the twenty first century. Can we please understand that we’re all created and equal?”
Other than that, this is a really entertaining movie. Sort of. Even though there’s quite a lot of conflict, it feels as if the bad guys are simply guests in this movie. It’s like we are presented with some flashbacks…
The damn movie feels like a highlight reel.
Okay, enough metaphors.
Other than that… a lot of CGI. Like… a lot. We can’t even film a sky these days, because it’s better to CGI the crap out of it. We just hate reality so much, I guess.
Oh, yes, the acting. It’s okay. The jokes? Yes, they’re there. Not like Thor: Ragnarok, but there are still some funny parts. A bit of drama, a plot twist that it’s phenomenally obvious, and… well… that’s about it.
A movie that is worth watching if you’re invested in the Marvel franchise, but it won’t blow your mind.
