I think in a lot of cases you're right about that, Edward. But this is Sam Fucking Rami here. You gotta believe that the buck stops with him. I can't imagine there's any aspect of the movie he didn't have total control over. No, what we saw on the screen was exactly what he wanted. And it worked for him and it sounds like it worked for some of you guys and that's fine. No art is going to hit every single person the same. But for me, personally, it just didn't work.
And the interesting thing for me is that this is the rare movie in which I was able to identify the exact moment the movie lost me. Usually I can't and I'm just all like "eh, didn't like it. Don't know why." But in this case I can pinpoint the precise moment of fail. LOL But it's fine. It's not a big deal, I just thought I'd remark on the moment it lost me since I knew it for once.
