    Undoubtably a good movie, Jack Nicholson was great, but the story failed to keep my attention and lost me multiple times during its 130 minute runtime. Most of the characters and drama didnt feel impactful enough for me to really care I guess.
    Might have to give it a second chance further down the road.

    I know it sounds cliché to say but I feel like this movie was made for me.

    The stylishness, the sexiness, the brilliant fight scenes, the gorgeous neon aesthetic, the camera movement, the historical german setting, the flair, the best soundtrack known to man (seriously these are all my favorite songs) and there was a fight sequence in a cinema playing Stalker!!! Pure spectacle and jaw-dropping stuntwork.
    I could practically see David Leitch winking at me.
    The story has, admittedly, some clarity issues but there is so much for me to love in this.
