    A generic action film hiding much more interesting mythology and spiritual questions. It’s like a cool idea that had to be plugged into the military action movie formula in order to be produced. More focus on their lives! More focus on their relationships and feelings! More focus on the gays! Still not bad tho.

    Tremendously fun and over the top in just the right way. Moves at a breakneck speed and brings you along for the ride with colourful characters, colourful dialogue, playful cynicism and great music. Love it.

    Fucking paedophilia ruining otherwise great cinema. I love the operatic feel, but that’s not saving this.

    And it’s not just the sexualisation and camera ogling and up skirt shots that are shitty and super uncomfortable. Mathildas whole character is built around the view paedophiles have of children. She’s nothing like an actual pre-teen. She’s harsh and hardened like an adult. She acts like an adult. There’s no childish softness or vulnerability. I’m not saying children can’t be awful or traumatised…

    Christ what a mess.

    Sure it says fascism is bad and has someΒ actual nuanced insight into the way the death cult of fascism manifests from toxic socialisation; but it’s also intensely self aggrandising in the borderline reactionary bullshit it spouts about ThE hUmaN COnDiTiOn.

    It’s so good in some ways but it’s crap in more. Some plot bits and characters are superb. I particularly liked the freestyle rappers. The art style and music are standouts. The male gaze is off…
