The movie is a fanboi's paean to a holy document, written for other fanbois yet somehow astonishingly delivered as a $150m summer blockbuster. It's especially amazing considering it's a $150m summer blockbuster that probably cost closer to $250m.

The whole affair had a tawdry stench of inevitability to it. It's as if everyone involved collectively decided that they would do their best to not make a terrible movie because they knew that the very existence of the film was an abomination.
