So much of this movie is interesting and yet others are not helping – notably the first fight in the middle that seems to go on forever. But I like the chunkiness of it’s messaging. It’s mostly fun and probably something that plays better in memory than while you are watching it.

Such a great action film. If more of them were like this I think I could see the appeal more, but sadly this seems like such an outlier.  Almost everything works, it is tense, it is funny, and even most of the emotional beats hit.

A nice little portrait of a film set, that just so happens to feature one of my favorite directors, cinematographers, and actor. It does a good job of translating the weird mix of intensity and stagnation that I often feel around a set.
