A fast-paced adventure sequel that’s packed with action, laughs, and the idea that friendship can foster a family.
There is a police-sympathetic message here, and the argument isn’t presented unfairly in dialogue, although it also comes almost as an afterthought far too late to carry any weight.
It’s great to see a strong older woman character starring in a female-driven story, and those looking for an adult drama will find just enough to like.
In a film packed with star turns, Joe Pesci absolutely runs away with the entire movie.
The creepy performances, mediocre story, disinterested direction, and horrendous original score turn this mess into a flop almost as soon as the opening credits begin.
The film is stacked with award-worthy performances at every turn, but this is Adam Driver’s pièce de résistance.
