    ★★★½

    Hokey writing, too many characters, too many subplots, but beneath all that, there lies a potent genre movie about trauma. Better than the the sum of its parts. Understandably more outlandish than the original but not outrageously so. The music is a standout.

    ★★★★

    West and Cohen paint an engaging portrait of an arresting personality, a brilliant legal mind, and a conscientious professional using the established mechanisms of the law to tackle the complex systems of oppression that underpin said law. This is what makes "RBG" such a rousing experience, especially set against the United States' situation in this very moment.
