Am I the only one who is becoming increasingly irritated that fight sequences don't seem to be shown in a linear enough way to know..
who is fighting who
who is winning
what specific techniques/powers etc are causing the outcomes
it just looks like a mess with costumes a good chunk of the time.
The visual of fights used to have an ebb and flow that told you a lot about the personality of the combatants.
This issue and mighty/new avengers of the last year have been particularly egrigious offenders.
I know it is trying to depict the chaos of war but this isn't a documentary.
Clarity needs to be respected enough that the story is digestible.
This feels like a movie with over/poor use of the shoulder held camera technique.
Please explain why I am wrong or why you agree.
