Taron is astounding.
That’s it. That’s the review.
Possibly a better video game movie than Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. It's like watching someone else speedrun an Uncharted game set in WW1. There's quick time events, lots of climbing and even a goddamn jumping puzzle.
But it's not just the visual language that is drenched in video games: it's the narrative structure. In order to make the one-shot trick work, the narrative uses coincidences to push the characters down the "golden path" (as its known in vidya games).…
Less than the sum of its great cast and excellent sound transitions.
Man writes fiction about violence against women to work through his issues of a woman having autonomy. Yeah, no shit.
The attack on the highway is bloody amazing filmmaking tho. Which is why this bumped to a six.
