Pretty average edition to a great franchise. The film felt directionless and underwhelming. The characters were uninteresting and hard to vouch for, and the best character was a fat Indian side kick. The effects look good, as does the cinematography, but that's a standard for Marvel filmmaking, it's the execution and momentum of the vision that fails.
This is a beautifully made film about a disturbing part of human nature. There's just a constant eerie vibe and tense atmosphere not knowing what is going to happen. The casting was spot on and the film is well directed, I haven't seen a film unearth some of the temptation of a sociopath as in this, as subtle as it may be.
Congratulations to anyone who can at least get past the intro credits. The film is jam-packed with skits and jokes that aren't in the vicinity of funny. I'm sure there's an audience for it but none that I'd know of.
A good look into the tail end of the southern justice system towards the black community and one of the people who fought against it. It's good to see Jordan in a role like this because he has a sincere authenticity about him and it captures well on screen, fitting the role. A touching story with ups and downs while trying to get justice for someone who deserves it.
The two things I liked about this film was Hugh Jackman and the flooded cities. Visually it's executed well, but I don't think the director was capable of achieving what was envisioned. The movie tries to use the backdrop conflict of Chinatown (1974) where there's an underlying problem that is surfaced by the investigation of the protagonist. At the same time trying to achieve the same narration style noir-crime that Sin City (2005) did so well, but doesn't reached the same protentional. I simply found the goals of the characters uninteresting and predictable, with a muddled/weak ending.
