Was the 2014 movie really good? I never saw it, but the ads for this one looked interesting, so I might get around to watching the first one in this series one day.
I loved it in the theater. Upon repeat viewings it's just okay for me now. The 3rd act is amazing and Bryan Cranston is very good when he's onscreen. But Aaron Taylor Johnson is a bore. Hollywood, stop forcing this guy on us like we're Isla Fisher.
And speaking of listening, we also get to hear something right off the bat that we didn't hear in the 2014 kickoff, before we even see anything (except the Warner Brothers and Legendary logos, of course).
Yes, they definitely listened, and now we get to enjoy listening.
