Amongst the recent hooplah over Stephen Sommers “did he or didn’t he” firing nonsense, film website /Film has posted a review of an early test screening that was done a few months ago. The footage was unfinished and the effects weren’t polished, but the reviewer gets an idea of how the movie will go.
By and large the review isn’t glowing to say the least, but there are some possible bright spots. “Anyways, even though the CG was incomplete in my screening, the action is pretty great…” the review says, continuing, “…the chase scene with Tatum and Wayans in the Iron Man suits is particularly well done. But rest assured as I’ve noticed a fear online that those suits play a big role; they don’t, they’re used in that scene and that scene only.”
It sounds pretty much like what we’ve come to expect. Loud, mindless fun, but not much else. I do agree with the writer’s sentiment that the film will probably sell lots of toys, and that might end up being a saving grace. We’ll all find out August 7th! Check out the full review here.
