The final quibble I have with the film was Gondry's injection of surreal cinematography. There was a part of the film where he tries to explain a political conspiracy using cut-outs, animation, etc. in a style somewhat similar to his previous films, The Science of Sleep and Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind. While I appreciate a fresh take on the superhero genre, I think maybe Gondry's vision was a little too indie artsy for the content that was being presented. It seemed out of place and didn't meld well with the rest of the film's style.
Final Verdict: On the comedic action superhero list, it rates lower than Kick-Ass, but higher than Fantastic Four. I'd recommend seeing it for the action scenes and the gadgets.
