Sam’s smart mouth = awesome.
Sam’s magic elbow of obscene longness = not so much so.
While it is a decent little scene, Sam being kicked into a wall and then toppling his kicker (whose foot is apparently as big as he is) with one nudge is kind of silly. I think my biggest problems here were the lack of real perspective – I don’t think I ever show Sam actually by this lady, so a giant foot makes her seem all the more huge (which I did want her to be huge, but not like that, per sé). Aw, well, she deserves such a humilatin’ defeat.
The pacing isn’t as bad as I remember so far. Was I just focusing on the worst again…?
