Astounding VFX on Kurt Russell’s character, but an otherwise bland sequel that does little to take the characters further.
This one is going in my “Faves Under 90 Minutes” bin. Even though the script isn’t perfect (well, it is about time travel), it nonetheless manages to feel very original, with some iconic moments that I won’t forget anytime soon.
Bong Joon-ho cementing himself as one of my favourite living directors.
Even though this film shows its influences very clearly (Spielberg, Zemeckis, Miyazaki), Bong imbues it with his own brand of weird to deliver an exceptionally surprising and endearing film, with brilliantly fleshed-out characters. Okja hits all the notes it reaches for, and then some.
