This was my type of Super Hero movie. Simple, straightforward plot without much social nonsens and preaching. Little in terms of the all too common whining and sel pitying by the heroes. They are heroes all the way without any nonsensical vendettas or moral bullshit.
If the producer/writer intended to make a Spider Man movie for kids, and I mean kids, not young adults but kids, then this movie is hitting the spot. It is an excellent action/adventure movie for kids. Unfortunately I am not really in that viewer segment and for me this movie was pretty bad.
A typical nonsensical, unintelligent, Hollywood story/script were you are better off putting your brain in idle when watching it. However it makes up for this with cool special effects and, surprisingly, quite enjoyable characters. Anyway, regardless of its faults I did enjoy my 2+ hour spent on this movie. Enough to give it a 4 out of 5 rating.
The entire movie is dark in spirit with X-Men all but died out and Wolverine and Professor X just waiting to die. The story is rather predictable with no major surprises, little depth and low on logic. A typical Hollywood drama. I know a lot of people seem to like it but I cannot understand why.
It is actually quite some time since I watched Doctor Strange but somehow the movie must have slipped between the cracks since I appear to have forgotten to review it. So I am about to remedy that now. To put it in simple terms: This is an excellent movie. It is a wonderful display of magical fireworks with a decent enough story to keep it together.
