For those saying "ah, it's got all these cliche' tropes and plotholes," I'm really not concerned. A lot of us just watch movies to see something interesting for a bit, even if the superhero and evil secret organization type of scheme is prevalent. If people didn't like the stuff, Marvel and Bond movies wouldn't have put out so much stuff. Not everyone is trying to watch the next Cannes film winner. Actually a lot of us would rather watch this than a movie you have to watch 8 times to understand.
Over all good acting and a decent storyline, along with a great ending, to me at least. If you are looking for a movie with deep sub-plots and most likely to be featured in your next Film Critique 101 class, you can skip this one. Not kid-friendly, but a decent viewing.
The first half held promise (for different story) but fell apart trying to create their superhuman. Fall back on the old tropes: a massive and unknown organization with almost limitless powers pick someone to jack with, DNA! That's it! Everyone knows DNA can bestow magical powers, torture the victim like Deadpool was to 'develop' his inherent powers, keep it up until he erupts into a Galactus level demi-god, then of course saves the Earth.
Only a decent sized comic's story line, the film was dragged on for seemingly forever on each plot line with the last third being the victim stepping painfully up the power ladder. Over and over, the same thing happens (torture) to crawl up the scale.
At first I was amused by the idea of someone discovering a star the was about to become a massive gamma ray emitter (and able to tell its pole was pointed at us no less). But the rest of the movie convinced me that was a throw away complaint in comparison.
The camera work was excellent and the CGI wonderful but you can tell it was done for the pretty blue and purple swirlies rather than anything representative or convincing. it *was* pretty.
As far as acting, there wasn't all that much of it but it wasn't the actors faults. The screen play had shallow dialog to match the shallow detail of the plot leaving mostly 'emotional' expression. Lots'a hollering and angsting going on.
Bad, bad scifi beautifully supported by graphics.
I also am a big hater of flashlights in my eyes and bright flashing lights. I have light sensitivity. Whoever thought shining bright flashlights or spot-lights into the camera for the past however many years was a good idea should have been "dealt with harshly".
Otherwise it was a good movie. I did enjoy it.
