I thought I was watching the Return of the King of the series, and instead it turned out to be The Two Towers. It was about 2 hours of setting up for the next story arc in the MCU. What should have been dramatic, came of like every season ender in a soap opera where you are left wondering how they will reverse what they just showed you.
Once again, like most MCU movies, the acting and characters are solid – but the story is shallow and a bit silly. Most of these popcorn movies are pleasing enough to enjoy on their own. This one works more like a giant infomercial for what is to come, and doesn't give you the satisfaction of a fully contained ride.
