Let’s face it folks, “Bullet-Bending” has been done before by the likes of Lito Lapid and other Filipino B-Movie action stars. Don’t even get me started on the “twist” scene, Good Lord, It was screaming “Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back” all over again. George Lucas should sue.
The ending scene’s intention on breaking habits and seizing the day, albeit inspiring, has been done before. Watch Dead Poets Society, you’ll see what I mean.
The movie is chocful of bad clichés and puns that I yearned for the pills James McAvoy’s character has been popping. The overall cinenatography didn’t fully capture the dark and grim atmosphere of the comic book (yes folks, it’s a comic book movie).
All in all, it was still entertaining enough to sit through. I still recommend it like I recommend watching Pam and Tommy’s sex video.
So… What the fuck have you done today?
