Wonderfully additive prequel soaked in dramatic irony, doesn't quite hit the immense heights of suspense deliver by its predecessor but what on earth does?
The fella playing young Tony Leung doesn't look the part though.
Feels like it was made by someone whose only previous knowledge of the series was having someone half-heartedly describe the plot of 8 to them despite being written by the same guy who's done every movie since Tokyo Drift. Can't put it all on Chris Morgan though, David Leith seems to definitely transplant a sense of humour from his Deadpool work with nauseating celebrity cameo gag roles throughout and action scenes that seem like overly digital messes even compared to…
Absolute fucking garbage. Attempts to be so many things and completely fails at all of them. Not funny as a sitcom. Not unsettling as "Lynchian surrealist horror", like a lot of people wanted to assure me it definitely was. Far too sparse to be entertaining as standard Marvel fare. Essentially just 7 episodes of prologue that vaguely gestures at being something interesting to let MCU twitter sniff their own farts about how it's real cinema, before the last 2 episodes push that to the side in favour of a bottom-tier Marvel movie with lower production values.
