About the Event

PG-13. 2hr 7min. Recent  college grad Jaime Reyes returns home full of aspirations for his  future, only to find that home is not quite as he left it. As he  searches to find his purpose in the world, fate intervenes when Jaime  unexpectedly finds himself in possession of an ancient relic of alien  biotechnology: the Scarab. When the Scarab suddenly chooses Jaime to be  its symbiotic host, he is bestowed with an incredible suit of armor  capable of extraordinary and unpredictable powers, forever changing his  destiny as he becomes the Super Hero BLUE BEETLE.

Peter Travers  ABC News:  "The  thrills in the first Latino superhero epic are mostly generic but the  personal relationships between protagonist Jaime Reyes (a charming Xolo  Maridueña) and his irresistibly rowdy and resilient relatives make all  the difference. Viva la familia."

Richard  Roeper  Chicago Sun-Times:  "While it’s great to see a Latino get  center stage, this is a mostly by-the-numbers origin story with  underwhelming VFX and a disappointingly cartoonish villain."

Owen  Glieberman  Variety:  The brisk, cheeky, unabashed gizmo-happy  triviality of “Blue Beetle,” a superhero origin story from the DC side  of the tracks, is enough to make the film feel like a breath of fresh  pulp."

Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer Score:  79%
