Truthfully I was skeptical and didn't put this on my 'must see opening night' list - until...my oldest son texted me from the movie theater and said, "Mom! This movie is good. You'll love it."
So, I dragged my happy hubby and the rest of my crew to the movie thinking that I would at least be entertained. But stop the phone! This movie had it all (except a serious romance) including a mild flirtation at an attraction. You want action? Got it. You want intrigue and twist? Got it. You want depth of characters? Got it. You want a good story line (no it's not Oscar worthy but it's darn good for a Comic Book Based movie) Got it. Definitately family friendly (if your kids don't mind violence). And...and it's got diversity. Lots of mixture of different types of characters. I-did-not- want the ride to end.
4 out of five 'shields' because well the storyline was good but not quite Oscar worthy.
