BLACK ADAM (Theatrical Release USA 2022)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Black Adam
—Dwayne Johnson with no muscles—has a few scenes that place his head on a computer generated body without his muscles. To change his look so drastically, is a shocking move. While it’s surprising to see him in this superhero movie, he obviously works his role. Pierce Brosnan has the same difficulty. He also obviously works his role and the result is that his acting, at certain places, seems a bit weak. It’s not the usual strong performance expected from either actor. The fault seems to lie within the story itself and its presentation. Some dialogue lines fall flat. The stoic persona demanded of the cast comes cold on the big screen. This movie could almost be a cult classic. Overall, the movie does not have the power to establish itself as a quality watch mostly due to the straight jacket that the cast is placed into that keeps them from finding themselves within their characters.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The movie runs flat and misses the high quality standards usually found within this casting group. The story itself needs improvement.
