Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg's "Book of Mormon" moment — a marvelously animated, ecumenically equal-opportunity offender with hope, heart, humor, heroism & heft.
Like watching a trio of NBA All-Stars, whom you know haven’t lost a step, return to the court and perform nothing but a three-man weave drill for two hours.

A contender for the worst modern superhero film & a mish-mash of poor, cynical creative decisions that don't even deliver shallow pleasures its title promises.
