Marc Webb United States, 2017

Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Gifted

Marc Webb feels back in his element with Gifted after two outings trying to keep up with the ubiquitous Marvel webslinger, and as a result, the film is given a lot more life and nuance. The predictable issues are still present: the film can be overly sentimental and the legal battle is typically theatrical and comparatively uneven to the character drama, but the strong performances work mostly to mask such issues.
