Although Rami Malik's performance is adequate I learnt although he can move he doesn't have rhythm as can be seen from the overcut CGI dancing scenes.
Some of the stories were out of sync with the bands real history and more should have been covered including their failed chart success in the USA. However I suppose this is where artistic licence kicks in again with the script.
For me the best performance was Mr Lee as Bran May. Still an enjoyable romp but I wonder if Sacha Cohen would have done any better with it? probably not but as a film its no better tor worse than any other band biopics
The only thing this Super Hero film Defeats is Itself!!
The best part of the film is Micheal Keaton's performance as the Vulture and Marisa Tomei as Aunt May. As for the rest well!! it looks like they are trying to make out Tony Stark to be the Messiah of Mankind who can not only save the world from everything but can clean it up and save the environment too whilst making a profit. Surely the American Dream made good as it was all built from guns, war and more guns.
Then there is the disturbing side of Tony Stark as it is difficult to work out if he is trying to be Peter Parker's Benefactor or whether he is grooming him for something else.
Either way with new fashion of race swapping characters rather than add an Asian to the cast does offer some fresh input but provides little value. As for the RC Iron man Robot controlled by WiFi and the SatNav Spidey Suit well it looks like the self fulfilling prophecy of The Sentinels from the X Men side of the universe would be the best thing for the world after all. Speaking of Xmen isn't that sexist shouldn't it be Xpeople or X Genders??
The saddest thing is seeing how dumbed down Peter Parker has become and instead being an inspirational innovator he has now become a slave of the smartphone and its supporting technology
June Squibb is the only person worth watching at least she is articulate and you can hear and understand what she is saying. Kendricks is truly awful as is the script. In fact the whole film should have been thrown onto the cutting room floor and set fire to. Probably would have made more money that way!
Wish I could give this ZERO STARS as it makes me sick just thinking about it. If all the people involved belong to some weird sect then somebody please go and rescue them and destroy the cult leader.
Don't get me wrong I appreciate and respect art and trying to be different but this inane drivel belongs in the nearest dustbin and any money should be donated to a animal shelter.
