Take out B.C., and the movie would struggle and probably collapse. Marvel obviously worked more on this one than any other film from their collection of super heroes, but, still, there was a reason why this is one of the last to get his own film. B.C. could make the dictionary exciting - do dictionaries still exist? - and this is sometimes too talky a film, and without much purpose. But there is Benedict, acting circles around the rest of the cast, giving this plot a shot in the arm every time it starts to bog down. I know there will be sequels and hope that they get someone who knows words, both in meaning and sound, and can give him something much better to work with. Watch out, B.C., E.R. is nipping at your heels and movies like this don't help. But, the B.C. fans will love it. Watch Sherlock Holmes, folks.
