It's not a film that you won't derive joy from, there's enough spectacle and fireworks to pass 108 minutes of anyone's time and there are some canny cameos and gags (hey purists - the purple pants get a nod), it's just that overall it's a bit uninspired and lacking in creative flair. It feels little more than a collection of set-pieces with the story and characters serving only as string to link the battles.
Oh, and Norton wasn't responsible for Roth's accent either.
A blockbuster by numbers that does what it needs to without ever excelling, this is more of a non-event than a stinker. Give it a few weeks till Iron Man, Dark Knight and Hellboy II come along instead.
