Black Adam review: Is Dwayne Johnson's DC movie a hit or a miss?

The powerhouse 'Black Adam' starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is all set to release on October 21.

With this DC film, the actor is making his big-league entry into the cinematic superhero world.

The movie, meanwhile, appears clunky with too much exposition, featuring a one-dimensional villain.

According to early reviews, the film overly relies on the spectacle rather than the character or story.

However, Johnson wins appreciation for showcasing his 'Black Adam' just as steely and imposing as in the comics.

The main character opposing his violent ways is Justice Society member Hawkman, played by Aldis Hodge.

'Black Adam' is rumored to have a budget reaching the $200 million mark.

Dwayne Johnson landed a $22.5 million salary for the movie, according to reports.
