Marvel’s Inhumans (PG)
Starring Anson Mount, Iwan Rheon
Directed by Roel Reiné
You have to be either a sucker or a loyalist (it’s the same, no?) to watch the first two eps of Marvel TV’s latest gamble — about hybrid alien-human super-beings locked in a power struggle on Earth (Hawaii, actually) — in IMAX (for a two-week run, starting Aug 31).
It’s so-so TV fare (too talky, not enough action), and the mega-size treatment, unnecessary and ineffective, only draws attention to its unremarkable production values. The powers that be also hired the wrong director for the job. Can you trust someone who made 12 Rounds 2: Reloaded, The Man with the Iron Fists 2 and Death Race 2? Don’t think so. The series premieres on HOOQ on Sept 30 (*)
