I'll be honest, I have seen all the films in this series, and even a lot of the television series its based on. This trailer had me going really? I ended up giving it a chance because critics were a buzz about it, and even Rotten Tomatoes, liked it.
It did have a decent developed story, plenty of action, but seemed to drag on a bit too long. Would have been just as good, with some extra editing but it was a very pleasant surprise, and worth seeing in the theater.
