Enough with nicecore bullshits (CODA, Cha Cha Real Smooth, Ted Lasso), we need more mean-spirited films like this.
What I enjoyed, for the most part, was the performances throughout the film. Everyone really put their heart into this, especially Ke Huy Quan. I admire his performance greatly, not only because he kicks all kinds of asses while delivering most of the film’s emotional payload, but also because he reminds me of Christopher Reeve’s portrayal of Superman—the way he removes his glasses, straightens up his posture, and changes his voice and expression whenever our Waymond switches to Alpha Waymond. His body language says it all.
