This is like taking a little inhaler full of aerosolized Jurassic Park concentrate. Very much enjoying the implication of what steps follow the bugnuts chaos of Fallen Kingdom.
There's two back-to-back moments in the early stages of this which, for me, encapsulate everything beautiful about Jackie Chan:
1: Furious that his girlfriend has been harassed and threatened by thugs, he runs to where they are hanging out, which happens to be across a huge busy highway. He runs across the highway dodging speeding cars, leaping over barriers and median walls, never using his hands or really looking at the oncoming traffic. It's inarguably badass both as a minor…
Watched with my brother, and I laughed with him a lot more than the first time I saw this, when I loved it but found it heartrendingly sad.
Then once it was over, I told him that I think this movie is about the Coen Brothers processing the idea that one of them will die first and the other will have to either try to make art without them or they will stop trying to make art, and that made me very sad again, but I think I’m right.
