The film is at its most interesting in the brief moments when it ceases to feel like a "superhero movie." But these moments - when the drama is purely human, divorced from the half-formed shared universe backdrop - are few and far between.
Leterrier and screenwriter Zak Penn dispense with the angst and focus on the smash. The result is a movie that eschews dialogue (or anything resembling an idea, for that matter) in favor of hyper-violent mayhem and unconvincing CGI.
It's a step in the right direction with some top-notch moments, and hardcore fans will still walk away with a giddy smile - but it's not in the same sort of league as Spider-Man 2, Iron Man or Batman Begins.
