Some iffy CGI aside, it is hard to fault the productions values. Marvel even at its nadir is robustly competent. But there’s a lot of big budget gilding here in service of a story that contains very little tension or urgency. The threat is muddled, the villain near non existent and the mismeasured set pieces struggle to hold the attention. Even the quips (jokey joke joke jokes) don’t really land. A pointless, merit free shakedown of a release that feels like three inconsequential TV episodes of series you gave up watching two seasons ago.
