Trashy, goofy, and surprisingly sincere, this superhero fantasy is better than you expect but not as good as it should be.
We are pleased to announce the addition of two great Assistant Editors at RogerEbert.com, Nick Allen and Matt Fagerholm. Both Nick and Matt studied film at Columbia College in Chicago. We congratulate them and look forward to their contributions to RogerEbert.com.
