From the reviews, I expected a different kind of comic book movie. I guess that's what I got but not necessarily in a good way. For the most part, it lacked any sort of oomph. I don't know anything about the comic so I don't know if that hurt or helped my enjoyment.
This was okay I guess but all I kept thinking about was that I liked The Rocketeer a lot more when I saw it in the theaters years ago and I'm assuming that movie isn't actually any good.
It also kind of reminded me of Robo Cop which isn't really fair to compare this to.
I'm fully expecting Chris Larry to rip into me for not getting this considering that it is a comic book movie and it is directed by his boy Jon Favreau. It's a good thing Vince Vaughn wasn't in it because then I'd have to pretend that I loved it in order to escape the wrath of Larry.
