I had heard bad things about the movie, so I was braced. I was bored during the first half hour, but things got better. As a Marvel movie, this is probably one of the least interesting ones, on par with the first (and second) Ant-Man, but if you check your brains at the door, you might enjoy the visual FX and the fight scenes.
