The story took a little while to get me engaged, but once it did I couldn’t look away. The action scenes are nothing short of spectacular. Most of them felt familiar, and I had to remind myself the age of this film, that this was the original, that those other films copied this. A true standout is the ladder fight at the end of the film. That sequence was copied in 2001’s The Musketeer, and I vaguely remember hearing this films stunt team was brought it for that, but I may be mistaken.
I will always enjoy anything Beatles related, but the unfiltered look in on their darkest period is the version of them yet. It’s always refreshing to see people we place on pedestals not the perfect beings we perceive. The last two Beatles albums are by far their best, and possibly some of the best in the history of music. Being able to peek into that creative world, and see how the conflict pushed them to an even greater end is spectacular.
