When I heard Disney was once again exploiting their rich history with Cruella, I was cynical and assumed this was another one of Disney’s incessant attempts to remake existing IPs instead of using their creativity. But (and I hate to admit it)… I was wrong.
A well-shot film with a strong script, but it’s Vanessa Kirby who steals the show.
TL;DR As funny as the first one (perhaps more so…) An excellent continuation to the first one, without feeling like an unnecessary sequel with the same tired jokes Sacha Baron Cohen’s comedic and improvisational talents on full show Maria Bakalova does a great job holding her own (and at times steals the show) A hilarious, […]
How could you follow Infinity War?! It’s too light and formulaic and lacks a real villain, but Ant-Man and the Wasp is still a fun breath of fresh air.
TL;DR Intricate, captivating plot Occasionally feels like the mission may be “impossible” – finally! Hints at current fears in society but doesn’t really get to the heart of them Incredible fight scenes and stand-out stunts Wonderful cast, each character bringing something special to the film Rebecca Ferguson and Vanessa Kirby underused Proof that these films […]
Incredibles 2 is just as enjoyable as the first. Though it may lack the bold heart and strong messages of the first, the characters are out on full force, kicking ass and making audiences laugh in style. This is the sequel we wanted – able to stand proudly amongst other superhero films that have come out in the meantime.
It doesn’t beat the original Ocean’s film, does little to surprise us or shake things up (other than an all-female group) and is too easy-going. But it’s enjoyable with comic moments, some nice characters and nods to the original – and it’s a refreshing joy to see a female-dominated cast in a film for everyone.
This has everything you could want from a sophisticated horror – enough jump-scares to keep it entertaining, an eternal sense of discomfort and dread, shocking twists, a constant mystery and a terrifying climax – and all this from a feature-length directorial debut.
Not quite as exciting as the first, without a clearly defined antagonist or particularly terrifying monster… but we still love dinosaurs and asking the question “what if…?” More a stepping stone to a probably more exciting third film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is still an enjoyable enough film to keep us going.
This is no Empire Strikes Back or Force Awakens, nor does it have a distinct personality like Rogue One. But it’s a joy seeing younger versions of these characters for a fun adventure. Nothing sets it apart and a bit too much is crammed in, but it’s a solid adventure in a galaxy far, far away that will keep us happy until Episode IX…
