    ★★★

    Let's get the bad out of the way first. The camera work, cinematography and picture quality were shit and the music chosen was even worse. Okay those were my only gripes and they are big ones. The acting was decent and serviceable for the story. The story itself and how it was presented was really good. I enjoyed the realistic feel and the fact that the sharks weren't villainized. The ending left me feeling underwhelmed but strangely satisfied.

    ★★★★

    This was good, very good. Fast pace with lots of action and nostalgia. This is a great side story for any one that has seen the movies, TV Show, or both. The voice acting took a bit to get used to but y the half way point I didn't even notice anymore. After watching this I wanted to watch episodes from the show which is high praise indeed as its a long series and I have plenty of things I haven't seen yet to watch.

    ★★★

    Over all this was a decent superhero film. I liked the actors and I liked the fact that most of the cast were black. However that might actually be part of the problem, because all they seemed to do was take the same tired old story and character template and switch all the white characters and made them black and made the token character white. so while nearly all the characters are black with the token white guy it all…

    ★★★½

    This movie was a hoot. In a lot of ways this reminded me of a live action anime. The acting is all over the place but its part of the films charm. The dialogue is bad, laughably so. The cast was charming and likable I mean the only real downside is Claire Danes who I found annoying and extremely unattractive.
