It even mentions its comic origins, thats how committed it was to its source. I did feel less of a connection to this world than the other two films because I felt like they could have taken the character to other places rather than stuck on the prison. Trying to cram stuff in can ruin aspects of the film also.
Even though the critics hated it, I saw some good moments in this film, the story was different and had my guessing at some points. I felt the climax was ok, I felt like there could have been something more, but it definitely allows more films to follow. The film really gives the fans something to chew on, especially the stand off between villain and hero near the end. However, I left the cinema feeling not fully satisfied, the film tries too hard to be something its not.
Mostly basic shots with some weird looking effects that they needed to change. All the beast transformations are shot very well, but when it came to the action it didn’t do as well.
James McCoy does another wonderful job at playing so many character at once. He brought the fire from Split and it made the film much better. Bruce Willis is still got the same drive from Unbreakable and he plays the hero very well. Finally, Samuel L. Jackson convinced me so much in his role, a cunning character that had wit.
