Zach’s review published on Letterboxd:
They’re just showing off at this point. One of the greatest action films I’ve seen, hands down. Not only full of exhaustedly talented choreography and action sequences, but also a really great story that is cohesive and engaging. Besides the first film, the other two were paced so unevenly with the world building and action, even if it was all worth while, but the filmmakers find their perfect stride and balance. The set designs and locations were spectacular as ever. Seriously, one of the most gorgeous looking action films in recent memory. Adored all the new characters, and especially the legendary Donny Yen. The film takes a step back from the “winking at the camera” moments that were feature heavily in the third film, and further develops this badass character as well as feeling more confident in themselves. They can get away with anything at this point with this franchise, and I’ll eat up every time.
