VERDICT  – 2/4

 

PROS–
1) Jack-Jack: Star of the movie! His unpredictable, unknown powers make him the most fascinating character of this film.

 

CONS –
1) A villain is as good as his motive. Evelyn / Screenslaver was mediocre and of course predictable from the very first minute.
2) Keene Act remains the central plot. Over-used theme.
3) Mr. Incredible teaming up with Frozone for stopping an ordinary ship? And that’s supposed to be the boss fight? I’m feeling sorry for Brad Bird.

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –

1) Another kafkaesque mindfuck starring Jake Gyllenhaal , the crown prince of psychological thriller.
2) The basic plot of doppelgängers chasing each other is intriguing.

 

Cons –

1) The climax is neither ambiguous nor meaningful for an average moviegoer.Comparing the movie to Memento or Inception is idiotic.
2) Mediocre supporting cast.
