A damn fine, proper action movie. Insanely well constructed and much bigger in scope than expected. Marvel's desire to make movies from different genres (ie. a political spy thriller) is setting their superhero movies apart from everything else out there.
Despite some awful CGI, this one strikes hard with wicked close-quarters violence, absurd Die Hardien scenarios and a lead performance from Gerard Butler that is among the best tough guy jobs we've seen in a long while.
