What I liked

What a wonderful cast that had phenomenal chemistry, pitch-perfect comedic timing, and strong stage presence. Each actor commanded our attention and organically, and repeatedly had the audience laughing out loud.

What I didn't like

I don’t think a credit sequence was needed at the end, and wanted a slightly tighter ending.

My overall impression

Self-aware and hilarious, with a big heart. Daly is painfully aware of the over-saturation of super hero films, the cliches and tropes, and the classic journey of our hero. He takes this self-awareness and creates an insanely funny send-up of this tired genre.
