I liked it but I didn’t love it. I think I am burnt out on everything being miserable (and yeah I knew going in that this would be that kind of story) but sometimes it felt like the plot was just “What’s the worst possible thing that could happen here? That’s what will happen.” At the very least, I would have liked a little coda at the end that confirmed the kids were safe, even if it wasn’t permanent.
I did like that it was unlike modern superhero movies. If anything it reminded me of the 70s Incredible Hulk show. It even felt episodic as the story went on.
I kind of liked that there was no scene at the end. Brought home that this was the last one with this cast. In a way the tag was in the beginning with the Deadpool scene (although that scene was not in the same universe as the movie).
One last bit of weirdness: for some reason the print of the movie I saw had closed captioning. Subtitles plus it sound effects etc. Anyone else’s like that?
So what did everyone think?
