Marvel does it again!  Visually stunning with great cast!

I've been wating for this film for so long and just before I went to see it, I wasn't sure what to expect. Let me tell you, I'm excited and can't wait to watch it again.

There are many things I like in the film but  to stress the two: crazy awesome kaleidoscopic visuals, and the time manipulation sequences. Mind-blowing! The second is the cast. Benedict is great and Mads, Tilda and others as well. Then we have really good action (refreshing to see no guns), costumes, make up, cinematography. IT expand your mind but it's a fun ride. And I love villain this time is not stereotypical. I will say movie lacks characterization, story could be better and there are some jokes which could be skipped. But yes, I get it, it's Marvel. Still smart enough and in some ways it feels fresh. Entertaining! A must see! 4/5
