Saw the very final screening of this here and I'm glad I did. The script is the definite source of any problems here, and for me it wasn't even a big deal. The beginning was a bit longer than necessary and the end was too slow. If it was just tightened up a bit, I would have no complaints, and it probably would've benefited the film as a whole to have a quicker pace. The actors here (except Ruffalo, wasn't too fond of him here, which never happens) are exceptional and it's great to watch. Johnson peppers in a lot of funny moments that I didn't expect and made me laugh a lot.

I enjoyed watching it more than I enjoy thinking about it. The film is a lot of fun, one of my favorites from this year for sure.

I agree and I miss ya Kal.
