    ★★★

    A massive improvement over Hardcore Henry. Nobody is good fun, but maybe a bit too in love with the John Wick series in the way every action scene plays out.

It was actually a lot of fun, and had a great murderous lead in Samara Weaving. Rim of the World on the other hand has a collection of the most irritating teens ever assembled.

    It's got the bit with the bikes, kids saying adult things they don't fully understand, sad backstories that are immediately discarded, uninteresting action, poorly animated alien designs,…
