An unconventional heist film in which a majority of the action occurs after the loot has been liberated, it features well-staged action scenes that ooze tension.
Eschews the simplistic animated story arc as it explores the power of imagination and innovation to overcome grief.
There’s plenty of visual pizzazz and action but the movie is geared more for those interested in getting their MCU fix than being fully immersed in a unique superhero experience.

A weird cross between "District 9" and "The Battle of Algiers" that doesn’t do either of those apparent inspirations justice.
The problem isn’t the emotional manipulation but the clumsy way in which the movie orchestrates its third act.
The chances taken compensate for the weakness resulting from a derivative story.
An intriguing blend of globetrotting neo-noir and road trip plot elements, it often seems on the cusp of greatness without ever getting there.
Simply directed but rich in detail, "Gloria Bell" has no deeper themes or motives beyond documenting a slice of the main character’s life.
Despite the faint whiff of sanctimoniousness that occasionally emanates from this well-meaning motion picture, "Saint Judy" generally holds its own as a solid courtroom drama.
Little more than a B-movie with strong production values and an eclectic cast, this is far from Jordan at his best.
