4.5 Absolutely nothing magical about it RJNeb2 | 04/10/2013 | See all RJNeb2's reviews (703) They somehow contrived to spend $150 million on this elaborate wizardry spectacle. Rest assured, very little of that was spent on the script or character development. Instead, it's all about special effects - which while effective are nothing ground-breaking. This is the kind of movie where the nerd hero lives in a tiny apartment in New York but yet somehow has a subterranean lab that's roughly the size of a car park. If you can handle that kind of illogicality and the fact that it's all relentlessly predictable, then this could be just the ticket for you.
