Viewed in IMAX 3D
”We never lose our demons, Mordo. We only learn to live above them.”
Even more visually stunning in visceral, elastic 3D. However, the story here is a one-hit wonder. On my first watch, I was fully engaged in the crazy dimensions this film presents to the audience. But, today when rewatching it, a lot fell flat. It’s just not an origin story that intrigues me as much as the others in the MCU. It’s unfortunate considering just how perfect Benedict Cumberbatch is, and how breathtaking the action scenes are. It just lacks the substance needed for more than one intent visit. But, at least there is enough here for me to say I do still enjoy it, overall.
