Make no mistake, this is still an MCU movie, so you're going to get a colour palette with non-existent blacks, scenes that serve to set-up subsequent films instead of serving the current one, and actors standing in front of greenscreens and trying to look worried. HOWEVER, Raimi brings such a jour de vivre to this movie that I don't care. There are more interesting camera angles and editing tricks in this film alone than the collective runtime of all previous 27 MCU films. Bolstered by a great performance by Elizabeth Olsen, the pace is fast enough and the action engaging enough that you can forgive the mostly uninteresting line-up of personalities assembled before you.

Traditionally the only true strength these films have had has been in their characters, so it's refreshing to see an MCU movie where the film-making actually stands out. Perhaps one day that film-making prowess will be matched with characters worthy of it, but for now this easily stands above everything else this studio has ever made. First MCU film since Iron Man I actually have an interest in rewatching.
