Well...I wanted to like it, I really did. I didn't go in with a lot of preconceived notions...I was prepared for some of the individual choices that purists were making a lot of noise about. And a lot of the things that the film did interested me...though definitely not the action half of the film, which was as mind-numbingly OTT as I'd heard. As a whole package....It feels kind of like Ang Lee's Hulk. A superhero film that's ambitious, that tries to do something different...but just doesn't come together into a greater whole.

I'd be interested in seeing a sequel to see where it goes from here...but I have doubts about how this film's going to fare...I predict steep drop next weekend from bad WOM. This is not Joe Sixpack's Superman.

I think I'll go with a B. Hovering on B-.
Ohhh that's a good comparison.
