How does Disney get Marvel so RIGHT and Star Wars so WRONG. Marvel continues an awe-inspiring end game that leaves the nerd in all of us with a big old smile on our faces and the softy in each of us a tear on our cheek. It is the rare 3 hour movie that you didn't want to end. Amazing Stuff, Nuff Said.
Quick note, this is not a horror movie...it is far closer to a sci fi movie than horror...which is an odd turn from the first movie. While still funny and even touching in moments thanks in large part by Tree (Rothe) the movie falls mostly flat and is far easier to guess what happens next than the first HDD. It oddly reminded me of a weird version of Big Bang Theory...my recommendation would be to end this series with 2u even though they clearly indicate they are working toward a third with the end credits teaser.
Lacking everything that made the original, so well, original and funny and irreverent the second part feels like the fun was sucked out of it. As the song goes everything is not so awesome which perfectly sums up the movie. And to boot almost anyone that follow politics and understands toxic masculinity will understand why this movie is certified fresh...well might as well convert em while they're young:)
As an ahem...older dude, I was one of those original G1 transformer kids who understood that the relationship between man and machine was more important than the explosions and the wars and the fighting...and as I say in almost every review its all about the story, story story....and let me tell you this group of folks did this transformers movie RIGHT! Getting back to the roots of what made transformers the global phenomenon it has become always means understanding what made it great to begin with and that's all about the relationship between a kid and his friend VW Bumblebee. This was simply a great story without all the necessary explosions and CGI of its earlier predecessors that failed so miserably. The movie actually made you believe that these robots truly were "more than meets the eye" If I could give this movie more than 5 stars I would...if you were a geek like me who loved everything transformers in the 80's you almost certainly are thanking your lucky stars for a movie that finally got it right.
Critics do not understand Venom. He is not a cute and cuddly villian like Dr Ock...he's a vicious killer and this movie did a good job of keeping to the characters actual comic book origins than anything seen in past spider mans which were terrible. Throw in some comedic fun and a great tease at the end and comic book fans are rejoicing everywhere.
