Communism is just a red herring.
Joyfully heightened action spectacle beyond belief, that has to qualms with ignoring every law of physics. I am here for every bit of this.
Not many movies earn having the title card drop 40 minutes in, but the build up to that moment is electrifying. As is one of the greatest dance battles to ever be put to film 20 minutes later.
It is definitely a commitment to get through, and at one point 2 hours in when the finale…
My group was having a great time (we were the only ones in the cinema). One moment in particular had us all cacking ourselves.
That being said, this movie relies on Toy Story for the biggest moments. If this was an original film, as it is in the world of Toy Story, the heavy hitting parts dont work.
I would watch a sequel, but aren't clammering for one.
Yeah, this is fantastic.
This film has three big things going for it, that when combine, make it such a brilliant movie.
1 - Highly original and creative story. Even if this was all it had going for it, I would like the movie for the sheer creativity on display.
2 - Technical Excellence. Everything is incredible, the acting, score, writing, directing, choreography. I could list a lot.
3 - Surprise emotional depth that I didn't see coming. To say more would be to risk spoilers, but I was invested throughout because of these characters.
