Shane Black went and made a true-to-form 90s action movie, full of classic staples of the genre, such as amazing quips, violence, choppy editing, and totally obvious studio interference. If you like the franchise, and you like dumb fun 90s blockbusters, you’ll love this movie. If not, then it can’t really help you anywhere.
This was such an effective and fucked up movie that I do not want to watch this movie ever again. Yes, it’s absolutely terrifying, but even when it isn’t scary it’s still brutally depressing and disturbing. Incredibly well made, and I’m still fucking shaking just by thinking about it. I know not everything is scary to the same people, but this movie just really fucked me up in a “I won’t be sleeping at all tonight” kind of way. This is so goddamn scary it makes A Quiet Place look like Paddington 2.
