Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is a good sequel. I watched the first Borat only a few days ago but I’m still very happy that Borat is back. This was basically every thing I expected out of a sequel to Borat. It has the same energy and outrageous humor of the first. The plot is good it’s a fun and entertaining story. It’s interesting how this takes place/was filmed in 2020, leading to a lot of jokes and plot points that have to do with the corona virus and the presidential election. This probably won’t age as well as the first did though. The third act is crazy brilliant and definitely the best part of the film. The Rudy Giuliani scene is honestly shocking and it’ll be very interesting to see how it is politically handled. The pacing is great similar to the first it has a short runtime making the pacing smooth and fast.
The acting is fantastic Sasha Baron Cohen gives a fantastic performance. Cohen reprises his character Borat and just like in the first film he disappears into the role. The fact that Cohen had to stay with two southern men for five days with out breaking character proves that he is legendary. Maria Bakalova surprisingly gives a great comedic performance, she was absolutely hilarious and I can’t wait to see what she does in the future. The direction is decent from Jason Woliner and the script is great. The script is of course hilarious and very clever. The cinematography is fine and the editing is fine as well. The comedy is hilarious while it’s not as funny as the first the comedy is still great. As much as I want it to this probably won’t get nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars like the first. The ending is funny ending that leaves you satisfied with what you just watched. Overall Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is a hilarious and very memorable film that is a worthy sequel.
