Not half bad
23 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's unfortunate that most people who go through the trouble of writing IMDb reviews are pretentious, pompous, and hopelessly opinionated. As an effort to offset their negativity and wannabe film buff nonsense, I thought I'd chip in. I took some film classes in college, so I'm not totally ignorant when it comes to filmmaking, but I'm by no means an expert. I'll skip my criticisms altogether and just say that it's not a perfect show. Having said that, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was engaging, suspenseful and fun. The music, setting, acting, cinematography, etc was all pretty solid. It's a superhero show, folks...no one should expect something that rises to the level of 'high art.' There have been only 2 exceptions to that rule that I can think of: the dark knight and legion. Go into this expecting to redefine your view of the universe, and you'll undoubtedly be disappointed. Go into it expecting to be ENTERTAINED and not much else and you should be happy. Also, if you're the type that enjoys poking holes in plots and spotting every error possible, you might have issues....but really, people....it's NOT BASED ON A TRUE STORY. Fiction and especially comic books have the luxury of telling stories unencumbered by facts. They're more like modern day Aesop's fables (which have many plot points that don't make sense btw).

Enjoy it for what it is: Good entertainment.
