It was lightweight, very mainstream and fun. I would’ve enjoyed more quirkiness but it’s a miracle the film worked at all, given it’s production troubles.
I’m not sure everyone knew where to pitch their contributions? Douglas was fine but I’ve seen him do more with less, Rudd could’ve been sharper and Lilly was mugging a little in places.
The supporting cast were on firmer ground, but then their roles were nothing unusual.
And Stoll was great. You can’t have too many scenes with the villain or the film goes out of balance, but he made Cross more interesting than he could’ve been.
The FX were all solid, some clever ideas with the microscopic and submicroscopic worlds.
And I agree about this leading into ‘Dr.Strange’. I thought that was pretty obviously where they’re going, but it didn’t hurt this film, they handled it very well.
