For the first two hours, it shows what superhero movies can do. For the last 20 minutes, it shows what every superhero movie has already done. But those first two hours are magnificent. Light on its feet but with clear stakes, romantic without being maudlin. And my god, what charisma these two leads have.
Astonishing and complicated and heartbreaking and just gorgeous. I'm finding that female directors are wonderful not squeamish about sex and the beauty of human bodies and their imperfections and for that reason alone this movie should be celebrated. But then, my god that cast! This movie is a wonder.
