    Really boring, and not in the way that I like where it's just that nothing is happening, but a vibe is being maintained, but in the way where stuff is happening and that stuff sucks so I don't want to pay attention to it and I wish other stuff was happening instead. Mostly this is the main guy's fault. The character sucks, the performance sucks... the guy sucks!

After about six more hours of at-best tone-deaf/at-worst truly vile geopoliticking including a scene where noted IDF supporter Gal Gadot literally uses a missile to save several arab children, followed by a few of the worst, ugliest fight…
