Critic Review - Chicago Sun-Times

The origin story is well told, and the characters will not disappoint anyone who values the original comic books. It's in the action scenes that things fall apart.

OR this movie is an outdated piece of shit. It is the definition of a so bad it's good. If this was to be released today it would be considered one of the worst cbm EVER.

he's too easy on it - worst comic book movie, ever. cgi is brainlessly bad, as is the dialogue for the most part. Get Batman begins.

He is kind of right though, the action was heavily improved in the sequels. I liked the movie, but you fanboys need to stop, so 5 anyway.

Even though I like the film more than Ebert, he's still pretty much right. The fx were unconvincing and stilted, and the script was sophmoric.

What a load of rubbish. There was nothing wrong with the action scenes.

The ending action scene was pretty epic, I really don't see what was wrong with it
