Love, Death & Robots: Pop Squad ★★★

This review may contain spoilers.

Not as deep as it wants you to think it is. This kind of story would have been much better served by a full length film. You don’t spend nearly enough time in the immortal utopia to make you even briefly think any of it is worth exterminating children like pests. 

In less than 20 minutes, this film expects you to:

A) Believe that hunting down and executing children is just cool with most of the population 

B) Properly empathize with a protagonist who does said executing

C) Buy the fact that he’s just now having an existential crisis about shooting a child in the face, presumably after he’s been shooting children in the face for decades. 

D) Believe that a stuffed dinosaur is fair compensation for crushing your solo (she did kill it tho)

The premise itself is more than deserving of its own film or even a series, but it was instead relegated to this dumpster-fire season because it had an inkling of substance.
