Singer really botched this one. Everything is so emotionless and bland. Issac monologues, mostly about the same thing, the entire film. His performance is muddled and depressing. He gives the Horsemen no motivation, which I thought was the whole point of casting Issac, to be persuasive and enticing. But he's just a bad guy, that wants to kill most of the Earth, to wittle out the weak. So think Ultron with a bad performance.
There's no sense of urgency, no new action we hadn't already seen by 2010. We spend way too much time with characters we're tired of, trying to control their powers that we've seen them master since the first film. Going to locations that we are all too familiar with. This should be a big, sprawling universe with so many possibilities. Why are we visiting Alkali Lake for the forth time?!
The 80's setting is wasted too, just the hairdos we've seen in trailers, and a shot of Knight Rider on tv, I think.
