    I cannot properly articulate how excited I was for this movie. Baaghi 2, which I saw in theaters out of boredom, is my favorite piece of dumb cinema. I’ve shown it to multiple friends, which has strengthened friendships, and I can always count on it to put me in a good mood. Ever since this film was announced I could not wait for it to come out.

I had much more fun talking about it on the way home than I did actually watching. If you're reading this without having seen I will be ripping the entire plot to shreds, just FYI, but don't watch it.
