Yes, Cyke was killed. Yes, Jean was wasted, and yes Rogue was mistreated. But, the major problem lies with Ratners direction. Everything is about cheesy one liners and careless action. When an emotional scene arrives, he just brushes it over his shoulder.
I feel like Vaughn could have taken the SAME script and given us a brilliant movie worth watching.
Wow, you couldnt have summed up my feelings more perfectly, not long after its release, I could at least sit through it, now, I cant even get 10 mins in. And Ratner is just as much to blame as anyone else IMO.
