Like Ruben Östlund's other recently released, critically favored film Force Majeure, there are things I absolutely loved and things I absolutely despised. Take that as you will. I see the appeal, but I started to get quite bored right around that dinner table scene with the 'animal'. I appreciate the ambition and the presentation of the film which felt meaningful, but I just wasn't super into this.
A very good sequel. It's a lot of fun, extremely well directed, and super well paced just like the first one. However, where this fails to match the first is in it's villain and the overall superhero commentary. The villain in this was super generic, and the reveal was too obvious. However, that doesn't stop this from being a very entertaining and worthwhile sequel, though - the 14 year wait was worth it.
