    ★★★½

    Not necessarily *great* great. The villain is flat and unengaging despite a terrific introduction. The last third is way too bloated. The shift from kids to adult superheroes is a bit strange, even though I love the choice here. The fight with the main baddie near the end is all over the place and isn't investing.

    The rest of it though, had me zoning in and out. The story...eh. its okay I guess. the biggest problem is I have little idea where this franchise's heading. What is it picking up and what is it…
