This film gets an extra ½ star for Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carrell's performances.
Where did Paul King come from and why isn't everyone talking about this man?! How is this and the original so good? Who knew they were still making quality children's films? Will I ever stop asking questions in this review?
This is definitely one of those sequels that is just as good if not the same quality or even better than the original.
I've never seen a film like this before. Using the actual "American Animals" in a documentary style while showing re-enactments of the crime in a full fledge crime drama was genius and magnificently done! I especially loved times where they'd break the fourth wall completely and had movie Warren (Evan Peters) ask real Warren a question. Solid heist film!
