    ★★

    This movie starts with a POV of a guy driving and a spoken word intro from Mitchum. That's as far as I could get. It seems to be a very unneeded remake that lacks the cinematic language that made Chandler's novel and Hawks' movie so memorable. Performances are by far worser from the onset.

    Pretty terrible honestly, but it was fun watching a DBZ movie in theaters. The touchups made in this remaster were decent. Animation/picture quality was good and the sound design, coupled with Falconer's atmospheric score, made it very nice to watch. It's too bad that the movie itself is rather bad...it relies on a deus ex machina to beat the invincible villain and the final act is repeated twice in the movie.

    ★★★★½

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

    The Incredibles 2 is a very worthy sequel to the 2004 animation classic. Brad Bird returns at the helm with the original voice cast and serves up a fun family film. The action scenes were shot very energetically and very exciting to watch. These visual delights were again scored by Michael Giacchino and he ensures there isn't a dull moment in the film. My only complaint is the poorly written villain. They didn't feel properly motivated to commit their wrongdoings.

    ★½

    I fell asleep like 5 times during this snorefest and still came away with the entire gist of the film. It's overly long for what amounts to 80% torture porn and the rest a slither of plot. Bad accents make it even worse to get through.
