Yep. The first 45mins are 3 star ok, the next hour is mostly 2 star meh with the occasional good bit, and then the last 20 minutes hit, and it's suddenly a 5 star fun filled joy.

Recommended?: with an editor that isn't afraid to cut the laborious 2hrs 29mins into a streamlined fun filled movie, this could have been a joy. Instead we get a lethargic, unbalanced movie that drags for unforgivable chunks before springing to life with a raucous, over the top finale that maximises the theme tune to exhilarating effect. Crying out for a fan edit that drops the needless night at the museum elements and cherry picks the best moments from the plentiful scenes on offer.
