Consider me surprised..I didn't hate this one.
This was fun! Especially on the big screen. Excels in exciting & dazzling visuals that manage to distract from the lackluster action bits. Cumberbatch tries to do a minor Tony Stark which is fine but of course, good old Benedict ain't no Robert Downey. Liked the jokes in between and I respect the fact that Derrickson & Co. decided to do something slightly different but kinda noble for the finale. On the other hand this feels like textbook origin storytelling at certain times which makes for a very safe but at times boring movie.
