    A surprisingly tolerable experience! I loved the cool, almost oversaturated cinematography. I like that the script avoids a few very obvious clichés and gives an insightful, (dare I say) woke message about our current cultural state. The premise is eerily conceivable and there are only a few minor details that the movie doesn't get right about information technology (I mean, "fastest Internet in New York?"

    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…
