    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    A disclaimer: I did doze off for about 20 minutes of this movie, so my review probably isn’t as informed as it should be. With that being said, I thought this was a good time! It kept my interest throughout the runtime and it has some solid action, but ultimately, I feel like it’s just not gonna stick with me very much—a pretty run-of-the-mill action movie, IMO.

    I did almost give this a 3.5 solely for having one of the best kills I’ve ever seen in a movie—spiral staircases will never look the same to me again.

    The first time I watched this, I was Robbie. Now, I am Josh Groban. Next time, I will be Marisa Tomei.

    I spent the first half of this watch silently lamenting how much the movie’s age was showing, but as the plot progressed, I remembered how cleverly it deconstructs masculinity and relationships and how it upends the very misogynistic elements I was lamenting. And hot DAMN, I’m a sucker for plot twists and big speeches about love and Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling and King Carell.

    I was sad that this had to be over when the credits rolled.

    Lives up to its title in the best way possible. This film is so many things rolled into a single 2-hour experience: it’s at once a sci-fi epic, a FANTASTIC action movie boasting some of the best stunt choreography I’ve seen in a while, a comedy that made me laugh aloud consistently throughout its runtime, a visual spectacle, a tender story about family and identity, a philosophical musing over the impact all of our decisions have on our lives, and…

    The great mysteries of life: Area 51, the Bermuda Triangle, and The Lord of the Rings getting better and better upon each viewing. Peter Jackson and co. created something that is the hallmark of timelessness, a story that is by itself a classic tale of good vs. evil, but is brought to life so marvelously through the painstaking efforts of this filmmaking army. Entering this world is something that I always look forward to and am happy to return to…
