The only genuine aspect is the action set pieces. They are flashy and loud and violent and, occasionally, quite effective. Everything else feels phoned in. Review

The documentary may read at large stretches like a greatest hits reel of Rogers’ program, but in a sense that is enough to make the point. Review

A really good Pixar movie. It is a fairly good superhero movie. As a long-awaited follow up to The Incredibles, it doesn’t stack up as strongly. Review

The strong acting, the lavish costume design, the snappy editing. It all adds up. But it isn’t the well-oiled machine that it thinks it is. Review

It isn’t style over substance, nor is it narrative over form. It is a seamless integration of great style and great narrative. Review

The jokes run thin early. The plot is uninspired and fails hard when it decides to play the heartstrings. Review

As much as the tone struggles to mesh, the core of Upgrade is jam-packed with entertainment value. Review

Strains to tap into contemporary technophobia, but it never grounds that in the source material that it borrows from. Review

Overall the comedy here is fairly tight. In a cinematic landscape that is bombarded with superhero movies of various quality, Deadpool is the IP we need right now. Review

Seeds are sown for characters to have genuine relationships with each other. These are largely abandoned, replaced with lackluster punchlines. Review
