    ★★★★

    Felt like a pretentious Fast and Furious movie. I had a lot of fun. It was nice to see a lot of Ukrainians in a major motion picture. The special effects felt like watching a qualitative leap like The Matrix but somehow more boring. A lot of Leonard Nimoy “my work here is done” moments. The siege at the beginning was thrilling.

    ★★★

    The final fifteen minutes or so of the movie are so deep cheese that it partially redeems the rest of it. It felt like if they got Homer Simpson to direct a movie and he's sitting there watching the explosions and such thinking he nailed it and the executives are like what was that. Otherwise it felt like the pilot episode of an Amazon Original Series. Or I guess a reboot of the movie Arthur except he's also a hitman.

    The first real film of the Trump era: A snide bigoted joke between rich friends.

    ★★★★½

    A lot of sugar to help the medicine of Marxism-Leninism go down. Yes, the kids are isolated buffoons, up in the clouds of revolutionary theory and a little too excited to kill people. But what's so good about the normie world? A bunch of bombs being dropped on Vietnam and stuffy old people holding meetings about criminal compromises. The kids know things can't go on like this and their confusion is ours.
