This is a bit of a mixed feelings movie for me! On one hand, I loved the indie story/script style to the whole film. I loved the relationships between the characters and how they develop throughout the story but, ultimately, this is not a good super-hero movie. It's a great movie about people with powers. To be fair I must say that I liked the movie!
This is what good storytelling looks like. It works on an emotional and intellectual level. Its earthy and ambitious but without going completely overboard and fucking it all up like many films is the (superhero) genre tends to do. In the end, a proper swan song to a long-running arc.
can't really fault it in any way. a beautiful poignant and mature take on the prickly protagonist. magold's direction breathes genuinely new life into a really tired genre. this no holds barred adult version is just the tonic it needs. seriously well done. the bar has been not only raised but caterpulted into a totally different direction
