Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm ★★★½

With the original 2006 film as the blueprint for the subsequent moviefilm, the second half eventually became predictable with the daughter taking the place of Azamat and Borat has to find her when she leaves, so on. Lots of parallels to the original but it’s building a piece out of an original work so that left me underwhelmed because I wanted to see a new story. Not all jokes worked for me especially during the daughter’s parts. Felt rather awkward than funny honestly. Political satire is more dominant than social satire now.

As a whole though, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm has got more emotional power than the first one. Despite being a flawed follow-up, it has managed to challenge the current state of comedies by being relentless with its attack to the audience as it should be. Sick twist too!
