    Too long, has the same boring world building as the original, and the high frame rate was distracting, but damn that was some good Movie Magic!!

    Masterfully constructed genre elements but thematically and narratively underdeveloped

    Far better than it has any need to be. It's hilarious, has great politics, and only minimal plot contrivences that haunt the genre.

    The Many Saints of Newark


    Just ok; it's impeccably acted and provides a much less egregious take on fan service than the usual Han Solo's Dice prequel fare, but ultimately fails to justify its existence.
