This was one of those rare films in which I was disgusted by the violence. The filmmakers' think they've portrayed funny Tarantino-style violence, but they have so much to learn. I'm not sure where this disgust comes from; maybe because I find it extremely annoying for a child to be acting like an adult, and applying such insane brutality. This is not what superhero stories were about, and Cage plays one of his most unsuitable roles ever. I couldn't wait for this movie to be over. Unfortunately, they've left room for a sequel.
