    ★★½

    No Spoilers, just regret and sadness. First of all let me say I would rather watch Suicide Squad, and believe me that about says it all. I don’t wanna be that guy who compares Marvel to D.C. movies...but I must. Marvel has had something D.C. has never had, a vision and a plan. They need a guru like Kevin Feige to give some continuity and flow to these movies. Justice League Asemble ! First of all you can’t just force…

    ★½

    All style, no substance. Action yes, character development...no. If you like 80s music videos, this movie is for you. I love the 80s but enough with trying to poorly capture the look and feel of the 80s. Let the 80s Rest In Peace, and drift away like a faded bitter sweet memory. Graphic novels don’t always translate well to the big screen, and this was no success story. Go watch John Wick 1 and 2 instead.

    ★★★½

    No it's nothing new. It taps into similar stories and situations that you have seen in Impposible missions, Bonds and Bournes. Having said that, it does it darker grittier and more brazen. This summer of movies has been a bit "meh" so I must say I liked it. It keeps you strapped in and doesn't pull over for a rest stop. Michael Keaton is always good value. It's worth a watch.

    ★★★

    Unexpectedly entertaining. Adequate Sunday entertainment. Reynolds and Jackson are actually good together. Ryan does "Ryan Reynolds" and Samuel L. does his normal thing. Lots of action for "action's sake". Rampant use of Music montages. It was like they filmed it in Europe while  on a press junket for other movies. Salma Hayek was not required. I also kept forgetting Gary Oldman was in it.
