First, Thanks Bryan Bishop for writing these reviews, always really fun to read
I agree that it felt like something was missing. Maybe it was just the different tones they were going for that felt different enough to seperate itself to much. The action was top notch as was most of the acting, but it did feel a little “Campy” in places that felt a little off in comparison. The Mandarin was disappointing but at the same time fun.. its odd.
Oh and that first part of the credits? A bit over the top with the music i think? Still i laughed at the end
