Holloway Odeon Screen 2
Wow! I’ve just returned from a big screen showing. Absolutely bloody brilliant!
For me, this is easily one of the best blockbuster action movies I’ve ever enjoyed in a cinema. Wonderful direction and visually stunning, go and see it on a big screen now!
The entire cast throw themselves in with gusto andthere is so much gall, invention and complete insanity to behold. Steampunk types have found their Star Wars?
I’ll say no more.
Apologies for being not very eloquent and gushing about what might be regarded as popcorn fodder, but this really blew me away today. I’ve not felt like this about an action movie blockbuster in years.
It was a matinee, so a sprinkling of folk sat quietly in the darkness. Bliss.
It made me think..
Blockbuster cinema can still deliver spectacular stories with élan that isn’t too bogged down with a required back knowledge of superhero universe and tedious macho* crap. *
In fact, the film has wound up the knuckle draggers for being too feminist in tone. Boo hoo, Comic Book Guy.
