Staring Negan before he was Negan, Captain America before he was Captain America, Gamora before she was Gamora, Stringer Bell *after* he was Stringer Bell, and two other dudes I really feel bad for as they don't have a cool name from something else... Despite all this talent, the movie just wasn't that good. Boring action scenes with too much slo-mo, predictable plot, cringe worthy as hell jokes, and technobabble that anybody with even a passing knowledge of what's being talked about will laugh at... So why 5/10 stars instead of less? It's stupid fun. I have to believe the corny jokes and ridiculousness of some of the scenes were done purposely... They just weren't done well. It felt like they wanted to make an over-the-top action-comedy in a comicbook style, but realized about halfway through that they'd spent all their budget on actors and the soundtrack. We had a lot of fun watching it, but I can only recommend watching this to laugh at... Even then though, you probably have better options.
