How many birds can Amber Heard herd if Amber Heard heard she could herd birds?
Not since Basic Instinct 2 have I eagerly anticipated a sequel no one else seems to care for. Big fan of the first Escape Room and the elaborate set pieces are here again in the second one. The premise is less intriguing by now, I think we know where the plots going 5 minutes before it gets there but it’s not the first movie to be predictable.
