What do you think? Would this have been a good approach for the reboot?
This just sounds really dull.
When I go and plop down $15-a-ticket, I want to see a spectacle with amazing special effects and earth-shattering sound.
The amazing special effects and earth-shattering sound would still be there, but they'd be serving the story rather than vice versa. That appeals to critics and to moviegoers who aren't ordinarily fans of the genre. The idea is to be a superhero movie, but not just
a superhero movie.
Admittedly, in my proposal the amazing special effects and earth-shattering sound would start about halfway through the film, rather than from the opening shot. If that's the only
thing that interests you, you might get antsy waiting for it. Shoot 'Em Up
