I took a week to write this because I had to think about my thoughts on this one. I walked in not being too excited because the trailers made it look like it was just going to be a rehash of the trilogy that came before this. I have to admit though, I’m quite surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did.
The movie isn’t as action heavy as the trailer made it out to look like. Which I was thankful for, It actually had quite a bit of horrific scenery and set pieces. I’ve heard a lot of people complain about Russell Crowe’s character and how he shouldn’t have been in the movie, but instead just an after credit scene, but I thought it worked well for the story and moving the plot along.
I will say I didn’t care for Tom Cruise but I didn’t think he was bad either. His friend though wasn’t really that great, especially at the end of the film. The ending also felt tacked on, and left me underwhelmed in a way.
Overall though the movie was entertaining enough and left just enough enthusiasm in me for the future of the Dark Universe.
