a solid 7. This is a fun movie that bucks the D.C. trend for darkness and replaces pompous nonsense (S vs B, JL) with puerile humour befitting the young protagonist.
Sort of Big meets Spider-Man, this is real fun at times. And while some effects and story components don’t quite work (seven deadly sins) it is enjoyable and entertaining.
Mark Strong plays a surprisingly consistent and mean bad guy. There’s no quarter given to his young opponent irrespective of his guise.
Well worth watching.
