Five episodes in, it’s hard not to feel like the magic could be gone.
A few qualms don't stop this from being yet another win for Marvel.
It may tell its story in fairly familiar fashion, but Teller & Brolin deliver and that last-act gut punch still lands.
The sequel is more hit than miss, even if those misses are pretty hard to overlook.
A bombastic sci-fi/fantasy/comedy hybrid that is hugely entertaining and irreverent, but it isn't flawless.
Knows what it wants to accomplish, and doesn’t try too hard to go above and beyond to do so.
Transparent, predictable and further marred by an inconsistent tone.
There was the potential for a more inventive adventure, but ultimately it plays it too safe to be anything special.
Ladies and gentlemen, one of (if not the) best first movies for any or the MCU’s heroes.
At this stage in the game, you know what you’re getting.
"Like its protagonist, 'Norman' is a movie with high ambitions, but neither the patience nor skill to see them realised."
The whole thing reeks of a painful indifference.
It's a slight step down from its fantastic predecessor, but 'Vol. 2' has got it where it counts.
