“Joe Johnston has done it again, managing to take what SHOULD be great action flick material and managed to make it, well, boring.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDonu0026#39;t get me wrong, the film started out quite well. The change from puny wimp to super hero was well done, as was the intro sequence with red skull. The whole nazi-mysticism mystique was done very well. But it seemed that after Joe Johnston filmed these two or three well thought out portions, the rest of the film was just filler.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI caught myself looking at my watch a few times, just sort of wanting the movie to end – and this was at the 1/2 point of the film. The action sequences are fairly average for the most part and I really never got that u0026quot;edge of my seatu0026quot; feeling as the characters faced peril.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll in all, an above-average film which could have been great if someone with better directing chops had been chosen.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e6/10”
