Why praise a movie that panders, with a symbolic pat on the head, to the audience it is supposed to empower?
A long-winded, thinly-premised, half-baked mess of a movie. I cannot think of one positive thing to say about this film.
The Incredibles themselves are a family of unappealing, irritating, paper-thin characters. They’re lame superheroes who don’t really accomplish much.
Who isn’t entertained by Samuel L. Jackson loudly spouting off his dialogue with all manner of creative “motherf%$&ers” peppered throughout?
All of this dazzling spectacle serves as a flashy distraction from the thin story and flat acting, but this is a wildly entertaining movie that breathes life into the Kong franchise.
You have to love a balls-to-the-wall action flick that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and “xXx: Return of Xander Cage” is outrageous, mindless fun.
