WION’s review of ‘Black Adam’ reads, “It is the script that is the Achilles heel of ‘Black Adam’. It tells a typical, hackneyed origin tale of a superhero (or more accurately, antihero) that is almost entirely without surprises. It looks to be a rehash of countless superhero pics from the last decade or so. It is also painfully predictable, and does not even attempt a lot to do anything terribly new. If you are looking for anything fresh in the plot, you’d be better off looking elsewhere.”
