    ★★★

    I loved the comic book visuals combined with socialist era atmosphere. I was more than willing to get on board with the confusing plot because this movie so obviously had *fun*.

    This is the first-ever comic book movie that showcases not one but two award-worthy performances (Road to Perdition might be the only exception here). I'm not exaggerating. We've been watching Sir Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman in…
