Really good for the first part and while it gets a little over the top in the final sections, it was exciting and strong in casting and easy to recommend.
It was fun and clever and big kudos for action scenes that weren’t just mind numbing exercises. The bottom line theme that the United States is the root of all evil will certainly play well these days but it leaves me cold. Elba is a big plus and Harley is always interesting.
It could have been a run of the mill sequel, bad guys want young girl’s heart for a transplant, old blind guy kicks their ass. But this movie aspires to more and adds on layers that really does take it up another notch. Now it was too gory for me, and as usual the wounds inflicted on our hero just don’t seem to matter. But I give the moviemakers props for not just rolling out another sequel.
An entertaining couple of hours. Blunt and Rock work well together. It was funny and scary and fast moving. No new ground is broken but that isn’t what the movie was aiming for. Jungle Cruise is a success.
Do not watch this movie. You invest two hours in a movie about a spy in peril and it comes down to does she live or die. And the movie ends before you find it. Really?
