I won't say much. Just put this on and soak in its natural warmth. So motherly and caressing for a film. Chalamet's performance is once again so memorable. And also, thanks for using 'Sister Golden Hair' by America ❤️
Second watch. Gave this another shot for my man Keanu.
It's definitely not bad. Fun first half. For what it's worth, the visual effects are cool. Decent story too. A lot's missing though. Just feels so undercooked and rushed. Zero emotional value too. Nowhere is it disastrous, but it just doesn't look like the director is trying. Quick watch though. 2 hours felt like 30 minutes
The locations, the set-ups, the lore, the guns and of course, the man himself. 'Parabellum' isn't a finale, and yet it feels like a grand culminating orchestra of elegantly painted blood baths with every fight scene topping the last. Possibly one of my new favourite action films. This is the same league as Fury Road, The Raid films, The MI films and of course the last two Wick flicks. If last year's 'Mission Impossible: Fallout' was rock & roll, 'Parabellum' is…
Was this worth getting up at 4 am for? Yes.
Is the movie good? No
Is it the coolest, batshit craziest movie you'll see this year? Fuck yes
We're hella lucky to be getting TWO Rajni movies this year. One being grounded and raw, and the other (uh, this) being a silly, outrageously entertaining, cartoony non-cartoon, Michael Bay style work of Indian explosion porn. And I'm not even complaining.
