    This movie might literally have everything. I have no idea how to talk about a movie like this, but I'll do my best to describe it.

    Take the melodrama of Shakespeare, add in the violence and slow-mo of Zach Snyder (but more fun and with more blood), the outrageousness of several Fast & Furious movies combined, two Captain Americas, some pretty serious and brutal historical colonialism, the most over-the-top villains you've ever seen, the no.1 dance number of the year, and…

    A bit of a mess, and a slow one at that. The first "big question" isn't posed until two-thirds of the way through the movie, but it rings hollow, and the writers confirm it by asking another "big question" 15 minutes later.

    There was potential here. The set design is fantastic, with an Earth that oozes Bladerunner vibes, and a score that reminds me of Hans Zimmer's yet-to-exist Interstellar. Yet for such a small cast, and how long we linger…
