“A mishmash of well-meaning, yet jarringly verbose and bafflingly incoherent nonsense which is only just about saved by some half-decent performances”, said Linda Marric of the Jewish Chronicle, giving it a three out of five stars.
Some critics have described it as a dull, cheesy, and time-wasting movie. While others there have given decent reviews claiming that it is a standard superhero movie but it somehow lacks excitement.
