Running Time: 123 min.

Another week, another comic-book movie. At least, that’s the way it seems lately. The most recent tale to get the big cinematic treatment is from the DC universe, and at least it features a more unusual hook than many other superhero tales. Personally, I had a lot of...

Like many of the other chapters, this is a decent and well-produced action flick with a couple standout chases.
