So how is it? Not bad.
Here's what a few are saying:
The Telegraph -- Many will be in awe, others totally bamboozled, but one viewing will simply not be enough. Performances by Washington, RPattz and Liz Debecki are praised, especially Washington.
Variety -- A futuristic throwback to Bond. Grandly entertaining and more straightforward than you think.
The Hollywood Reporter -- Makes you feel mesmerized by its spectable but also lke your mind has been tossed about like a balloon.
IndieWire -- Big, clever, joyless, exhausting.
