A fun enough watch.
I’ve forgot the entire plot as soon as the credits started to roll.
If Abrams cut out the irrelevant side stories, which infest the body of this movie, it wouldn’t have been so stupefying. Of course, the modern audience needs new fiction shoved down our throats to stay interested for a 2 hour run time. The sheer amount of honorary fiction makes the conflict seem so painfully meaningless. Could anyone think that mega-fleet poses a genuine threat? I just can’t stop asking myself: what the hell is even happening?
Is it just a mega-ad for a video game?
Seijun Suzuki’s 1967 mildly campy masterpiece about a hitman on a run for his life.
A hilarious version of Le Samouraï via Frankenheimer’s style in Seconds, which were both released only a year prior. This blend functions better than the sum of its components.
Some dope oddly placed music too.
Endearing and absorbing throughout. Often, action heavy or somber scenes are perfectly interrupted with a zany joke.
I wish it were more tragic or the plot was a bit punchier (while still maintaining the focus on style or course).
