    ★★★★½

    Breathtaking feature. Johnson at his whodunnit-loving best.


    Some highlights:

    -Lakeith Stanfield calls Daniel Craig “hoss” no fewer than 40 times.

    -Jamie Lee Curtis won’t stop looking into the camera and mouthing “I was in Halloween.”

    -Michael Shannon punching Chris Evans in the mouth.

    -Michael Shannon punching Dode in the mouth.

    -Michael Shannon punching me in the mouth (3D screening).

    -It’s actually a prequel to Brick? This actually didn’t really land tbh.
