    Watch this film. If you like science fiction that challenges then this is for you. Who cares about answers when you don't even know the question?

    Didn't finish. Interesting concept descended into tedious action chase.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    There was only one way this film could go, and it kind of got lost en route. I've thoroughly enjoyed the other three films in this particular branch of the Marvel universe, but the finale was an anti-climax. It felt bolted together, lacking a naturally cohesive plot. Getting rid of 50% of living things was a passable idea from film three, I assume to allow for an easier time writing film four. It would also provide for a second moment…

    I'm only halfway through so perhaps the good stuff happens later. I've found it tedious thus far. Watched it with the kids expecting to demonstrate documentary film to them but they lost interest too. The climber is a bright but ultimately uninteresting subject. The subject matter should be interesting but just isn't. As seems to be the current trend, we're focussing on celebrity over substance.
