As good as advertised... Fully entertaining- action scenes were great, drama/story scenes nicely advanced the story and had the right intensity, and characters developed nicely. The pacing was quite good and didn't make the 2h40 seem too long. Only stumble in my mind was the campy buddy type moments that seemed to be cuing up a Disney adventure ride.
Tedious. Most of the film is epic score and epic scenes usually reserved for conclusions of movies. Simple rescue story, no character development (they just introduce them and assume we will care)... pace is slow, acting is unnecessary (due to lack of plot/characters), effects are decent... overall, just a little exhausting.
Very enjoyable movie. Great pace, great visuals, the action scenes are very fun and well done (feel true to comics). The movie has an overarching story, but focus is on the characters as they move towards the final encounter with the villain. The scenes even seemed like a perfect length- not overdoing battle scenes, etc.
Informative movie as it recounts the events of the Boston bombing, but it is difficult to figure out what the point of the movie is: is it about informing the viewer, is it about the character Wahlberg portrays, is it a call to love/pride(?). Well made movie, impressive cast, entertaining enough. Reflections at the end might be strongest part of film.
Each Marvel series seems to move a bit slower, and this one certainly doesn't have an energizing pace, but most Marvel series are propelled by the character development.... Unfortunately, there are very few intriguing characters in this series, and I am not sure I even like the main character (he's a billionaire that seems to just be running around thinking 'me!, me!, me!'). The final 4 episodes salvaged the series, but up until that point there was not the usual draw to start the next episode.. more just persevering because of a trust in Marvel.
Slow starting, but does a good job of pulling together 4 different characters (feels) and creating a team without too many of the cliche internal conflicts. Good action, good characters and a straight forward plot that manages to not to name drop 'the hand' too much (the storyline seems like it has been around for years). The characters development was good (JJ was the only one that did not seem more interesting by the end).
