To be honest, it was really disappointing
Nothing really happens in this movie. There is barely a story, it is just the kids going into this building and spending at least 2/3 of the movie climbing the stairs. Seriously, I was very excited for this movie, but it was very boring and there was barely any action. I don't mind if it is actionless if the story was great or the characters had interesting things to say, but none of that happens in the movie. When I mention the kids climbing the stairs throughout this movie, I "literally" mean going from floor to floor.
Terrorist have taken over this tower and there are 200 floors. They climbs all the way up to the 200th floor, and we get to see it. The main villain is not developed at all. We know nothing about him or why he is doing this evil plan, only that he wants to sell this item he is after for money. It is all for money. There is also no real threat in this movie. No matter how badly the good guys get beaten up, they get up right after. There is a scene where the main bad guy does a very flashy and supposedly strongest attack he has against one of the main characters, and he does fall down looking like he is in danger, but he just gets up again and continues fighting like nothing happens.
This movie was a huge disappointment for me because once again I was expecting an interesting story with these characters but the movie was really boring. The banter back and forth was funny sometimes but also unfunny at other times. There is a cool premise with one of the superheroes starting to lose his powers, but it really doesn't go nowhere. Deku has the most development in this movie. His character actually goes through an arc and he comes out at the end of the movie a changed person. I guess All Might sort of has an arc too, but he spends about 75% of the movie on the floor tied up.
Overall if you are a super hardcore fan of the series, you may like this movie, but you will still have to agree that not a lot of stuff was happening. It is just a bunch of the kids climbing the stairs until they can get to floor 200 to stop the terrorist. Terrible main bad guy, silly twist that had me rolling my eyes, only one cool action scene and that is at the very end (although you can't really tell what is happening because there are so many things flying around), very boring and long middle act, and overall a boring and uninteresting story.
