    Wonderful. Dark, satirical, and oddly hilarious. A trip through the history of cinema as well as an open commentary on the follies of our past (and present) with a bumpin' soundtrack to boot.

    And I don't think there has ever been a better devil put to film.

    “Do I look normal momma?”

    Effortlessly beautiful and a second watch allowed me to catch a few more details and simultaneously worry about them less. The characters, the reveals, the horror and the visuals are all engrossing in a way that adds up to a complete experience, even if the themes are delivered pretty straight and there are a few plot details that leave more to be desired.

    Mr. Nice Guy

    ★★★½

    Packed with action as Jackie evades his forever-rivals (angry men in oversized suits) through rounds of familiar stunt setups. Mr. Nice Guy plays more like a best of compilation that doesn’t quite add up to the sun if it’s parts until the climax featuring a drug lord compound and a 2-story dump truck driven by none other than the Nice Guy™ himself. Who knew we were going full Bad Boys 2 in this one?

    In the Line of Duty 3

    ★★★½

    Hit play on a whim and the opening jewelry heist was too bat-shit-80s to turn away. That was a fully movie unto itself—action, explosions, emotional stakes and all. The villainous duo is on another level in this one: Tampopo gangsters meets Natural Born Killers. Alongside some solid, if unmemorable lead performances, In The Line of Duty 3 keeps the intensity going for the full runtime to make the whole thing a surprising and satisfying find.

    ★★★★

    Fun and doesn't take itself too seriously in all the right ways. Well acted and smart, my only major grievance is that Ronan was forgettable and disposable as a villain. Glad I caught it a second time in theaters to get over the hype.

    ★★

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

    Falls below average when it's revealed that **the maze has been fully mapped out before the movie begins** -- so what's the point, again?
