Okay, three minutes into this and I'm like "vampire movie!" because of the alien bad guy being an energy sucker. Then when you think about it, the movie is also a witch movie, cause of the whole mind over matter-think it and manifest it, that the heroes can do.
I didn't love it, I didn't hate it. Lukewarm is about all I can give it. Reynolds seems to be able to pull off comic book based characters, he's got just the right mix of seriousness/comedic timing that makes you forget you're watching a possibly ridiculous plot.
What did I learn from this? Everyone is capable of more then they think they are at first glance. A hero is more then his ego, more then what he is brought up to believe he is. And there is a little witch in all of us.
