It didn’t fail me at all. Critics who are payed to bash WB should be ashamed.
Black Adam DCU movie is entertaining when not expecting to see Da Vinci Code level production & it’s 110% worthy of support. It’s even a bit generic as mostly haters / neutrals say, that doesn’t bother me with this DCU action movie. I’ll give second viewing for Black Adam later on weekend 🎥 PLOT: Black Adam who is the mythical hero of the occupied city of Kahndaq, is released into modern times. While Adrianna Tomaz who freed him & her family hoped he would then liberate his people as a sign of gratitude. Her dream didn’t happen as Black Adam is not the hero they think he is. He hides a secret that puts him in no good position with the Justice Society of America, those who want to stop his deadly rampage. After reading this, take a look at my Kenobi review PT1 ^^ PT2 can be found from top right & bottom. 🛋
Brief rundown through this solid big character addition into DCU.
Dwayne has put a lot of effort into making Black Adam to stand out of the big crowd, with a clear desire to make Black Adam his new signature character. He gives the character a legit dark side, for example to have him kill without hesitation. Even Black Adam doesn’t allow second thoughts for doing that, all of it is swept away cause of Dwayne nailing the humor, action & memorable relationship with the kid. This kid reminds Adam of his own lost child, that giving more touchy feels for viewer. Something about supporting characters: Brosnan is terrific as Dr. Fate. He’s kinda like mirror image of MCU’s Dr.Strange. Yes Dr. Fate was created before Dr. Strange ^^ Dr. Fate senses that Black Adam’s powers could be used for helping others. Brosnan’s presense on screen is always so strong that good viewer understands not to take munchies while he’s around. Hawkman is played by talented Aldis Hodge. Hawkman is presented as Dr. Fate’s protege. He’s a much harder-edged hero who takes too much pride in being essentially a peacekeeper for the mortal world. Then there’s also few other characters who have non humie strength. One of them is Cyclone, who’s appearance is sort of annoying cause of overusing slow motion. Though, then again it worked out well in another beautiful cinema art called 300 so it’s use is not so bad.
“Dwayne Johnson was born for for this role”
Verdictioz: As a whole Black Adam DCU movie is a giant scaled beautiful action flick, with Jaume Collet Serra doing a fantastico job on the action scenes. Those that DP Lawrence Sher beautifully photographed ^^ I have to say that Black Adam Comic Book Live Adaptation is better than many DCU & MCU productions. I’ve been a huge DC fan for twenty seven years so it’s great to see these less known characters get to shine on a live act production. Supporting characters in this movie are kinda bleh & drag it down. There was too much of the “Justice Society” & not enough of the evil corporation or the main antagonist. Black Adam movie has a great movie under the surface. Feels like WB still doesn’t know how to make supah-hero movies or antihero on this case. That on mind didn’t stop me from enjoying this because i didn’t think i was going to have this much fun watching it ^^ When i went to watch in local theater, people behaved as should & viewing experience was good. It’s a solid film that makes ‘The Rock‘ look like a legit antihero badass. It has good cgi, mostly spot on acting, good humor & fun supah-hero boomz flick. Happy for supporting it through few ways & also DCU that needs saving from it’s current state.
David Zaslav who is ceo & president of warner bros has made eight years plan with colleagues for comic adaptations into cinema & telly show format. Blue Beetle coming out before mid next year & Shazam before that. I’m not hyping for Shazam 2 because of villain casting, but really looking forward to Blue Beetle & happy to support it in Cinemas with two viewings ^^ I guess that Karate Kid‘s audience will support it as well because ‘Blue Beetle‘ movie character is played by talented cheery hearted Xolo Maridueña who is ‘Miguel Diaz’ in the series. Hopefully this eight year plan turns out ok & bummer to know that Aquaman 2 comes at end of next year cause of delays put in use at end of last summer. I hope that manyyy go to watch Black Adam on cinema before it vanishes 20.11 & comes into Hbo Max on early December. I’ll stream it there twice a month for first few months. Kindly: Forever Hbo Max Subscriber & fan of Mcu & Dcu. Pst: More DCU.
