Like I said, if someone can't suspend there disbelief enough to enjoy this movie, then it probably isn't for them. Everyone can make up their own mind. As you said, you might want to rent it, so you're obviously not that into it. Fine.
I have a friend who likes sci-fi /fantasy films, but he has his own standards about which movies are too far-fetched to suspend his disbelief, and which ones aren't. I really don't get how he measures what's reasonable, or what makes logical sense, and what doesn't. He wouldn't see Captain America because he thought a guy who slings a shield was too crazy, but he likes Superman movies? I know another guy who would only watch Smallville. He has no interest in any other superhero show or movie, no matter how far superior they might be to Smallville. Go figure? To each his own.
