    Only my second time seeing this and I’ve probably underrated this film before. It’s quite solid, if not a tad long in the tooth. There is a lot of yelling back and forth and threatening of people that sometimes doesn’t go anywhere. 
    However, Greengrass does a great job of ratcheting the tension and the stakes and this film hinges on its final scene. Hanks is just fine during the majority of the runtime, never standing out more than he has in the past but is phenomenal in the last 10 minutes and probably contains the best acting moment of his career.

    This movie fucking rules. 
    Kurt Russell not only plays a great Everyman but his character makes all the right decisions and still winds up in a helluva mess. I love how much he sweats. 
    The tension just ratchets up to a ridiculous degree and then there is a brilliant climax. That road chase is exquisite. 
    Man, I miss JT Walsh, an all time great character actor.

    About 15 minutes in, when humans dressed as cats started to do a dance routine with humans dressed as mice and humans dressed as cockroaches, I thought I was losing my goddamn mind. 
    I literally had no idea what was happening from one moment to the other. 
    Rebel Wilson looked like she had no desire to be there. 
    Ian McKellan looked like he had no clue why he was there. 
    At no point did I believe anyone was physically where…

    Gerard Butler drives an 18-wheeler like it's a race car. 
    All the shots of Morgan Freeman are so close you see every pore. 
    The bad guy is obvious in the first 5 minutes.
    Nick Nolte plays Grizzly Rambo. 
    People explode. 
    Grizzly Rambo kills 2 people in front of a baby. 
    Gerard Butler brushes aside CTE and PTSD cuz he's a man and a patriot. 
    The credits scene makes zero goddamn sense and is funny as fuck.
