3.5 stars+ I would recommend
2 - 3 stars is watchable but not recommended
This is the ultimate fridge logic movie especially considering the flashback in the middle of the movie robs the first half of its narrative tension. That being said the too online overly self-absorbed satire delivers a few good laughs (Rian Johnson is basically what you get if the front page of Reddit directed a movie). Would be entertaining on an airplane but probably wouldn’t stand up to multiple viewings.
Also Daniel Craig’s Foghorn P Leghorn accent is ridiculous- I kept waiting in the second half to switch to his regular accent.
Nancy Kwan is simply outstanding as the sajiao-ing Suzie Wong, a perfect foil for Holden’s Lomax - she is frequently laugh out loud funny. Holden is miscast however, I think they should have picked someone who’s a bit younger and a bit more “artsy”.
Great scenes of Hong Kong and lifelike supporting are highlights but the ending felt quite abrupt.
