I had only watched this movie once and that was years ago. I remember thinking that it was too long and too slow.
But then again, I was probably expecting something different.

I watchedt this last night with my son who is now 8 years old.
It isn’t heavy on action and is big on character development in the early going.
I asked my son if he thought it was boring and he said that it wasn’t boring at all.
He was very into the slow build up and mystery of it all.

Obviously, he also had a strong connection with the son, Joseph, in the movie.
I had totally forgot about the whole father/son relationship. Probably because I had watched this before my son was born.
So that was another aspect of the movie that I personally connected to and really enjoyed.

Even though it’s rated PG-13, this surprisingly makes for a great watch with the kids since there isn’t that much violence and I can’t recall any swearing either.

The editing is superb and seamless.
Video and audio is great which is the norm for CBB fanedits.

The only suggestion that I’d make would be to cut the opening text regarding comic books as that seems out of place and/or gives something away too early.
