CGI has yet to define itself as a new color in the cinematic palette. This may not seem the case when you consider that any major blockbuster released by Hollywood is lousy with it. But let’s not take Hollywood as a guide in this instance. Instead, let’s just say that CGI is nothing more than digital matte paintings, digital make-up effects, digital animatronics and digital-digital, just to be safe.
It’s finally happened. After ten summers of being beaten with fists, laser beams, mighty hammers and batarangs we have finally gotten a movie that adapts the storytelling techniques of comic books rather than just its most famous characters. Nothing can be truly spoiled if you are paying attention and being moved by what you see but nonetheless be warned: I saw the movie and am going to talk about it.
