It's almost as if the new film has a complex backstory and characters who are not what they appear to be at first glance. Do I detect signs of intelligence on the part of the writing? I thought the movie was supposed to be dumb popcorn fare? Perhaps some of the doomsayers on this forum are not as good at predicting the future as they think.
