    man, i wanted to enjoy this SO much more than i actually did. the jokes don’t land at the pace they should, the gore is fleeting, the choice of how it got edited is WILD and some characters are wholly unused or flat out unexplained. as off as i felt about the movie itself, i do have to give massive props to alden ehrenreich and o'shea jackson jr. absolute standouts of the film by a long shot.

    hell yeah.
