In the trailer for this flick, we once again see Neeson on the phone with a mystery person and AGAIN, find that he's been framed for something he didn't do. AGAIN members of his family have been threatened. And AGAIN, he somehow has a set of skills that he uses to solve the mystery and save the day.
I wasn't sure how I felt about this film after seeing the trailer a few times. To me it looked interesting, but not interesting enough. It seemed as though Taraji was playing a hit-woman who was either double crossed or facing one of her toughest jobs yet. It really wasn't that clear.
The characters had real-life quirks and conflicts and the "creature" wasn't made to be this out-of-this-world entity. Instead, he was almost like a mermaid. A creature realistic enough that you'd believe his kind really had existed at one point in time.
Absolutely the best of all three films! This one had a great deal of action, a decent (enough) storyline and was just overall brighter. I still wouldn't consider it one of the top five Marvel films but you'll want to see this in theaters if you can, the visuals are incredible and completely worth the price of admission.
This one was by far superior to its predecessor and the cast (or lack there of) had a lot to do with that. Also, audiences will be happy to know that this one was far more action packed and a lot less hokey than the first.
