CALPUNDIT….SMASH….PUNY….HULK….I give it two stars out of four. The friend I went to see it with gave it one star. Actually, what he really said was, “I almost left halfway through to go sit in the lobby and eat some popcorn while I waited for you.” Does that mean he was just hungry, or that he thought it was a bad movie? I report, you decide.

I gotta say, though, that for the first two hours it was dumb but comprehensible. But the final half hour was completely incoherent. I have no idea what was supposed to be going on.
