Has anyone seen it yet? What are your thoughts on it?

I enjoyed it. It was definitely one of the more realistic superhero movies. For example, everyone in the city gets pissed at him when he destroys a train (and other property), but in Fantastic Four, they do MUCH worse damage, and no one seems to care.

The whole relationship between Will Smith and Charlize Theron's characters WAS a little weird (when I read up on it back in the pre-production stage, I thought they were just having an affair, not that they were husband and wife centuries ago), but I didn't hate it as much as a lot of critics did. Though I do see how people could find it a little jarring. It DID make sense, though, as far as why she didn't want him around her. And it also explained why he didn't age, his name, and a lot of other stuff, too, so I guess it was a good idea. I'm just glad they didn't get together in the end. That would've been WAY too cliche.

But, yeah, I enjoyed it.
