Since the movie was only released this morning and hasn’t come out in the States yet, I will keep this as short and spoiler free as possible.
First 30 minutes = Boring, followed by “wow that was trippy man, what were the writers smoking?”, little more boring, some humour, then “holy shit that was so cool and sounds exactly like the story I started writing shit I must have read that in the comics why omg that looks freakin awesome”, mild confusion with super-amaze-balls fights, roll credits with pretty graphics, mid-credit scene Avenger cameo, more credits, ending with a slightly confusing end of credit scene.
Too confusing? Okay I will simplify.
Why watch it?
- Benedict Cumberbatch.
- Benedict Cumberbatch’s impression of an american accent.
- Cloak of Levitation.
- If you like kaleidoscopes.
- First magic power based character in the MCU since Loki that didn’t gain powers from a magical object.
- Time Manipulation.
- Tilda Swinton’s fighting prowess.
- Inception+ The Matrix + Batman Begins, but with magic.
- Beyonce jokes.
- A goatee that could rival Tony Stark’s.
I give it a 4 out of 5.
