This film is messy, but it’s not a complete disaster. It guesses a lot and most of those guesses land awkwardly… The film is passable, but in no way can we consider it the solid basis for the Dark Universe franchise. The sense of adventure exhibited in this film could lead to something better. It’s a long shot, though.
There is an old ship, that lay dormant for years that is discovered in the midst of the chaotic pace. That ship has a story that is only touched upon for purposes of pushing forward with the action at hand. How and why that ship was there for so long is what I wonder about as the last act of the film takes place. What happened to its survivors? They tell you what they want you to know. It would be more interesting to find out more about their story.
God save the Queen and long live the Kingsmen.
