Mostly only interesting as a precode horror/thriller movie. Though some craziness helps make it watchable.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
This movie is totally nuts, it's like they let a six year old write the script. All this is to say I loved it and it was a whole lot of fun and it might be my favorite Batman movie now. You know how LEGO BATMAN
is only thirty minutes of a good movie but people still loved it for some reason? Well this one is great and crazy the whole time! Everytime you think it's settling down and you…
Does it fully justify it's existence? No.
Is it a worthy follow-up to the greatest superhero movie of all time? Mostly yes.
Is it still better than every superhero movie made since the original, the greatest superhero movie ever made, fourteen years ago? Most definitely.
I think Brad Bird (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST PROTOCOL) was content with the original just being a standalone movie but after TOMORROWLAND greatly under-performed begrudgingly went back to the well for this, but it sure doesn't…
Not going to make you forget about the original (thanks to the leads not being nearly as charismatic or good or interesting as Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze*) but the stuntwork and no shaky-cam are good and thus I think it is mostly worth sitting through the not terribly good rehash of the original's plot.
*Also we're supposed to be seduced along with Utah into the Bodhi's gang. Wasn't happening, with me, with these dude-bro hippies.
